Solar Thermal

P.G.S Electrical Service can provide the homeowner solar thermal systems which uses the sun's warmth to heat some of your hot water. Fluid inside solar collectors (panels) on your roof absorbs irradiance from the sun. The ideal aspect for the panels is a south facing roof. As a rule of thumb you need between 1 and 2 m2 of collectors per person living in the property. It's then pumped along pipes to your hot water cylinder, heating up the water to a preset temperature.


Enjoy the benefits

Your boiler or immersion heater tops up the heat as needed, bringing the water to the temperature on the thermostat. Run yourself a nice relaxing bath to celebrate -you'll be saving money every time you turn on the hot tap.

A solar thermal system will work best in summer, when it can heat up to 90% of the hot water you use. But it will still save you money all year round and you'll be able to get £300 towards this from the government as part of the upcoming Renewable Heat Incentive
