Why Choose Solar Thermal panels for you home or business?

Solar thermal panels, also known as solar water heating, are ideal for both commercial and residential sectors thanks to their wide ranging benefits. The simple process of the panels means they capture the heat from the sun and use it to heat water as the name suggests. 

While solar thermal heating installation does come with costs it can save you money in the long run, through cutting down your energy bills as heating water requires a huge amount of energy and can considerably push up your costs whether you’re a business or homeowner. Through storage, you can even access hot water when the sun isn’t shining. What’s more under the UK government’s domestic renewable heat incentive (RHI) you could receive quarterly cash payments after over a seven-year period as part of a wider plan to encourage more people to take up low carbon alternatives.


When compared to solar PV panels, solar thermal panels are more efficient and as a result take up less space. A typical household will only need 2 or 3 panels to provide all of the hot water they need, compared to PV panels where they will generally need 3 times that amount or more. Solar thermal panels have been designed to work alongside the majority of heating systems so you can often incorporate it into your current system, whether it already utilises renewable technology or not.


Solar thermal panels also provide a reliable source for heating your water and many manufacturers will give you a long warranty, giving you peace of mind that you can rely on the technology for years to come. As the panels consist of no moving parts the invertor is typically the only piece that need changing during the course of the device’s estimated life span. As a result, once installed you will have little outgoing costs for solar thermal panels while reaping the benefits.
