Aqua Plumbing & Heating Services Limited are providing Solar Thermal (Hot Water) solutions for homes across the New Forest region.
Using the sun’s energy to heat water is not a new technology, however the way solar panels look is, so not only do they look sleek but they can meet up to approximately 50% of a home’s domestic hot water needs. This makes it an environmentally sound as well as a smarter way to significantly reduce your energy bills.
We install Solar Thermal New Forest systems that use the sun’s energy to heat domestic hot water from solar panels generally mounted on the roof of a customer’s home.
Some modern solar water panels can mount flush with a home’s roof and resemble skylights so can look quite discreet, or attach to an existing roof surface. They come in a variety of configurations, usually mounted portrait or landscape in pairs. The geographic location, system design, collector orientation and collector size will determine how much energy can be provided for your individual domestic hot water needs.
- We recommend leading MCS approved manufacturers’ vacuum tube panels or flat plate collectors and have qualified staff who can carry out alterations and adaptations of existing systems.
There are government funding initiatives available to help with the cost of Solar thermal installations. Current information can be found on the Energy Savings Trust website (www.energysavingtrust.org.uk).
