Solar Thermal Panels – Pre-Heating Your Water – Saving You Money
Solar thermal systems works by using the sun’s energy to heat your hot water. The system works best in summer, when it can heat up to 90% of the hot water you use, however, you will still save money all year round. The system is likely to reduce the home owners energy bills by approximately 20%.
Not only will the thermal system provide a free source of water heating, it is estimated that it will save 4.62 tonnes CO2 (when replacing gas) and 10.45 tonnes CO2 (when replacing electricity) – significantly helping to save both the planet for our children.
The government has introduced financial incentives which provide an income through the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) scheme.
