Solar Water Heating Systems
Solar Water Heating systems (Sometimes called Thermal Systems) are one of the most cost efficient renewable energy resources available. You can create up to 70% of your property's annual central heating and hot water requirements. In the summer months 100% of your hot water demand can be created purely by your solar hot water system.
Solar Hot Water Systems convert light into heat, which in turn provides central heating and creates hot water for your home whilst at the same time helping to reduce carbon emissions and reduce global warming. The process is simple and effective and entirely renewable - something which has to be good for both the environment and future generations.
How A Solar Hot Water System Works
The solar panels collect energy from the sun which heats fluid contained within the solar panels. When this fluid is hot enough, the pump circulates the hot fluid around the system. The fluid is pumped around the coil at the bottom of your hot water cylinder which in turn heats the water contained within.
At Homeco Energy, we only install the most efficient, Microgeneration Approved (MCS) solar panels that during the summer months can provide as much as 100% of the hot water requirement for a household. In winter, due to the lower intensity of the sun's rays and fewer daylight hours as much as 30% could be provided with the balance being provided by conventional water heating systems such as a boiler.
New research from the Energy Saving Trust showed that a home with 'green credentials' would be easier to sell and that over half of all householders would be willing to pay more for a house which has renewable energy systems installed.
Homeco Energy is an MCS, government accredited design and installer of Thermal Solar Hot Water systems, and as a result can help their customers apply for a government grant of up to £400 towards the cost of the installation.
A solar thermal system is genuine, cost effective way of helping to reduce your energy bills and your carbon footprint in this fossil fuel age.
