Solar Hot Water Systems

How It Works

In basic terms, solar water heating systems use solar panels called collectors that are fitted to your roof at the best angle for the sun.

  • They then sit there and collect heat from the sun, using it to eat up water for your home in a stored cylinder.
  • There are two main types of solar panels that people are currently using, the first are evacuated tubes which are a bank of glass tubes mounted on your roof tiles. The second option are flat plate collectors, which are either fixed on to your roof tiles or actually integrated into your roof for a more sleek and professional looking finish.
  • You will need to make sure that you have at least five square meters of roof space that face east to west in order to get the most out of solar water heating.
  • It is worth noting that large solar panels can also be placed on your roof to provide some contribution to the heating of your home as well.
