Solar Panels harness the power in both direct and diffused sunlight and convert the energy to heat for the production of hot water for the home.
The majority of solar panels have been designed as a complement to existing heating systems which store hot water in a cylinder. This exisiting cylinder is exchanged for a cylinder with two heat exchanger coils: one from the boiler in the property and one from the solar panels.
Solar panels are perfect partners to modern condensing regular and system boilers which require a seperate cylinder for the storage of hot water. When used together, a high efficiency boiler and solar system provide a highly efficient system to give heating and hotwater comfort.
A typical well sized solar system should provide around 50-70% of the domestic hot water requirements of a home, representing a very worthwhile saving on hot water heating costs. The remaining hot water requirement is provided by the boiler.
