Solar Thermal Hot Water Systems

Solar Thermal - How it works

In our pursuit of offering the latest technology in home heating and hot water SJH Plumbing & Heating now offer affordable Solar Thermal hot water systems. The solar energy collected can be used to heat hot water for domestic baths, showers and kitchen use. The parts have long service lives and are pretty much maintenance free.

How it works

Solar water heating (known as solar thermal) systems capture the free heat from the sun and use it to heat up water for use in the home. It’s a simple process:

What usage can I expect?

Solar thermal panels should provide most of your hot water from April to September, and make a worthwhile contribution in the months on either side of that period.

Overall, solar panels will provide about 60 per cent of a household's hot water needs, if well-installed and properly used according to Energy Saving Trust field trials.
