Solar water heating systems use solar panels fitted to your roof which warm water. An air source heat pump or a boiler will be needed as a back up to heat the water to the required temperature when there is no solar available.
There are many benefits of solar water heating – hot water all year round (the system gives about 70% of your hot water and up to 50% for central heating).
Reduce your bills; sunlight is free, so once you’ve paid for the initial installation your fuel bills will be reduced dramatically.
Reduce your carbon footprint: solar hot water is a green, renewable heating system and doesn’t release any harmful carbon dioxide or other pollutants.
