With fuel prices going up all the time it makes sense to look at ways to reduce your bills as well as cutting your carbon emissions. In a typical home hot water accounts for around 25% of the heating bill - the majority being central heating. Our solar hot water systems will provide most of your summer hot water use (Energy Saving Trust).
Supplying this amount of your annual hot water by solar heating will typically need 2 to 5 square metres of panels and will cost between £2,500 and £6,000. Prices vary depending on the solar panel used, whether mains pressure hot water is required and specific requirements of your building.
From March to September solar energy will usually provide most of your hot water, but will only contribute to pre-heating water during the winter months, your boiler will need to be used to bring it up to temperature.
These systems are relatively easy to price and to install usually taking just two or three days for a domestic property. We can of course also provide larger solar hot water systems for multi occupancy buildings such as hotels, halls of residence, schools or commercial sites.
