Solar Thermal Systems
With solar thermal systems households across the country can save on their energy bills. Here at Rudkin & Herbert we provide solar thermal panels across Leicestershire and Derbyshire to help homes produce over half of their annual hot water. For more information, take a look at our article here .
Contrary to what many people think, the UK does see enough sunlight for solar thermal systems – even in winter. Ideally we will aim to place your panels on a south facing surface at an angle around 30-45°, the closer you get to this specification the more efficiently the system will run, but our professional team will advise you on the optimal positioning of your system.
The panels will collect heat from the sun throughout the year and utilise it to heat water in your hot water tank via pipes and cylinders. This can run in tandem with a boiler if needed but summer months will no doubt provide adequate heating for your hot water needs.
Our team of expert technicians are dedicated to the installation and set-up of these renewable energy systems, helping you to cut your energy bills in an environmentally friendly way.
Simply contact us today for further information or to arrange a home visit and a member of our Leicester based team will be happy to help.
