Solar Hot Water
If your current central heating boiler provides a store of hot water in a cylinder ie. a regular or system boiler, a solar water heating system could provide a golden opportunity to ‘go green.’ Solar thermal products work by harnessing freely available energy from the sun. This simple, clean and efficient technology absorbs sunshine and converts it into heat that is pumped directly into your hot water cylinder.
Solar thermal panels operate on the principle of daylight absorption and don’t depend on long spells of unbroken sunshine. A special coating on the absorber ensures that the system performs efficiently – even on cloudy days.
The panels harness the power in both direct and diffused sunlight to convert the sun’s energy into hot water for your home and are designed to complement existing heating and hot water systems.
Used in conjunction with a regular or system boiler, a typical solar thermal system could provide around 50-70% of your home’s annual domestic hot water requirements – in the summer months this could be as high as 80-90%.
Advantages of Solar Power
Sustainable energy: unlike energy produced by consuming and depleting the earth’s deposits of fossil fuels (gas, oil and coal), solar energy works on the principle of harnessing freely-available radiation from the sun (which is only half way through its expected 10-billion-year life cycle).
Environmentally friendly: unlike fossil fuels, solar energy produces none of the effects of carbon dioxide emissions or other kinds of environmental damage. Furthermore, all materials used in the making of the solar panels can be fully recycled.
Simple, clean, effective technology: Our solar panels absorb sunlight and convert it into heat, pumped directly into your hot water cylinder. The small amount of electricity used by the pump is your only running cost!
Proven technology: Our solar systems are based on technology that has been working successfully in Europe for more than 20 years.
Very efficient: Our recommended Solar glass has exceptional light-transmission values.
Suitable for any home: Solar Panels can be installed on sloping and flat roofs.
You’re in control: the solar system includes a control, which enables you to set the hot water temperature you require with ease.
Easy to look after: The Worcester-Bosch Greenskies Solar Panel range requires minimal maintenance, simply check the controls and fluid during your annual boiler service.
Worcester quality: Greenskies has all the built-in quality and reliability for which Worcester, part of the Bosch Group, is renowned.
