Solar hot water systems (also known as Solar Thermal) are a renewable energy source that harnesses heat from sunlight by capturing energy which is radiated by the sun within solar panels or collectors.
This heat energy is then moved downpipes to the hot water cylinder within your home, reducing the need to use Gas, Oil or Electricity to heat the hot water you require; lowering energy bills as well as your carbon footprint.
A typical well-sized solar water heating system can provide up to 60% of your annual hot water requirement leading to reduced energy bills. Often as part of Lindricks whole-house heating and energy criteria, a solar thermal system with twin coil cylinder is used to heat hot water in conjunction with our heat pump systems.
Solar thermal systems are also eligible for the renewable heat incentive.
