Heat Water for your Home using Energy from the Sun | Solar Thermal
Solar water heating systems use free heat from the sun to warm domestic hot water. A conventional boiler or immersion heater can be used to make the water hotter, or to provide hot water when solar energy is unavailable.
The benefits of solar water heating
- Hot water throughout the year: The system works all year round, though you'll need to heat the water further with a boiler or immersion heater during the winter months.
- Cut your bills: Sunlight is free, so once you've paid for the initial installation your hot water costs will be reduced.
- Cut your carbon footprint: Solar hot water is a green, renewable heating system and can reduce your carbon dioxide emissions.
APH are fully accredited by the government to supply and install your solar thermal panels. We can also advise and help with grants and tariffs.
Savings on your energy bill
Solar water heating systems can achieve savings on your energy bills. Based on the results of our recent field trial, typical savings from a well-installed and properly used system are £60 per year when replacing gas heating and £85 per year when replacing electric immersion heating; however, savings will vary from user to user.
Typical carbon savings are around 230kgCO2/year when replacing gas and 500kgCO2/year when replacing electric immersion heating.
You may be able to receive payments for the heat you generate from a solar water heating system through the government’s Renewable Heat Incentive.
From August 2011, you may be able to get help with the installation costs of a new solar water heating system through the Renewable Heat Premium Payment scheme.
Green Deal finance and renewables
This technology is an eligible measure under the UK government’s Green Deal which is a financing mechanism that lets people pay for energy-efficiency improvements through savings on their energy bills.
