Solar Thermal

When it comes to solar thermal (solar powered) water heating, solar heating systems and solar energy, you can rely on Assured Heating Essex to support your needs every step of the way.

Many people have been put off the idea of solar panels, possibly due to the recent trend of homeowners covering the roofs of their houses with ugly looking solar photovoltaic (PV) panels, whilst taking advantage of cash back schemes being offered by the major electricity companies. While these schemes are still available, they are not as lucrative as they once were so it is important to ensure that your solar thermal solutions are carefully selected and installed correctly.

There are two different types of solar installations available. Solar Photovoltaic (PV – Photovoltaic Systems), which feed your electric and take up the whole roof, and Solar Thermal systems, which provide hot water to save on gas consumption and are generally one or two panels.

We offer Solar Thermal. These systems are much less intrusive; a normal 3-bedroom property would generally need only 2 panels. A typical well-sized solar thermal system should provide around 55% of the domestic hot water requirements for your home, representing a worthwhile saving on hot water heating costs. The boiler provides the remaining hot water requirement.

The Worcester Greenskies solar thermal panels are a perfect partner to the new range of condensing Greenstar regular and system boilers. Different models are available for both oil and gas, which require a separate cylinder for the storage of hot water. When used together, a Greenstar boiler and solar thermal system will be a highly efficient setup to provide heating and hot water comfort.

The government are offering a cash back incentive scheme aimed at home-owners in the UK. Upon installation the homeowner will be entitled to a £600.00 grant, and for the following 7 years receive a payment to offset the up-front installation costs. Feel free to ask us about the available grants.
