Solar thermal refers to using the suns energy to
heat your domestic hot water supply. The advantage
of the system is in being able to heat a hot water tank
for use in your bathrooms and kitchens for free. These
systems are often combined with other renewable technology
such as air source heat pumps or biomass boilers to
provide additional free energy, while ensuring there
is a sustainable back-up source.
Solar Polyvoltaics capture the suns energy in its
cells and converts it directly to electricity to power
your property. Solar PV can be reduced electricity
bills by up to a third.
In addition Solar PV are still subject to Government
backed Feed-in Tariff and Export Tariff schemes ensure
index linked annual incentives are paid to owners for
the next 20 years.
Strictly speaking solar thermodynamics should be
within the heat pump section of this website as it uses
heat pump technology and atmospheric heat, not solar
heat. However it does use panels attached to the
roof of a property, so if most often associated with
Solar thermodynamics absorbs atmospheric heat to
raise the temperature of liquids pumping through externally
mounted solar panels. This heat is then carried
to a compressor to be boosted in temperature ready to
be transferred to the property’s central heating system
through a heat exchange.
Solar thermodynamic used atmospheric heat and not
solar heat, therefore it is working everyday, even when
the sun is not shining.
