Solar panels for solar Heating - How it Works

Solar Heating for water

Solar water heating simply converts light into heat and uses that heat to heat your domestic water. The systems do not need direct sunlight to work effectively!

  1.  Light is absorbed and heats a solution in the solar collectors (the solution is a mix of water and glycol).
  2. The heated solution is pumped into a second coil at the bottom of your cylinder in your hot press (this is a closed system so the glycol solution does not mix with the water in your cylinder).
  3. The solar heat is transferred through the copper coil into your water.
  4. The heated water rises to the top of the cylinder for domestic use.
  5. The solution is pumped to the roof again for reheating.

Solar panel Installation

A solar heating system can be fitted in about 2-3 days with a minimum of disruption. You should not be without hot water for more than a few hours.

All solar collectors should face in a southerly direction. If you do not have a south facing roof we can supply a free standing kit that can stand in a yard, a garden or on a flat roof.

Did you know that in 2009 Renewable Energy Systems installed over 3 Kilometers of Solarfocus solar products in Ireland through its agent network?

Think!

When considering payback ALWAYS consider quality as these products are expected to work for a long time in harsh conditions [Measure twice and cut once]
