Solar thermal is an excellent alternative to traditional energy sources. With zero carbon emissions and an inexhaustible supply of sunshine solar technology is good for the environment and is an excellent way for homeowners to reduce their carbon footprint as part of a wider lifestyle choice. Adding solar heating technology to property may make it more desirable to potential buyers, as the home would be less susceptible to the fluctuation in heating prices.
How It Works
Solar thermal collectors work by allowing the sun to heat up a special glycol/water solution within the panel on your roof. These panels efficiently collect the suns energy in this fluid which is then circulated from the roof panel into a cylinder where heat transfer takes place moving the energy collected into your heating system. The simplicity of this system means that in choosing a supplier, you want high quality and reliable products to deliver the cost savings over time.
How It May Look
We have included the diagram beside to give you an idea of how the system might look where solar collectors are connected to a central heat store transferring the energy collected from the sun into your home.
