Solar Thermal Systems have many benefits to show off and parade around. Consumption of water is something which most households dread, due to the high prices associated with the energy requirements to produce it. Solar systems are able to generate up to 60% on annual domestic water, which adds up to a 60% reduction in energy bills. This percentage actually increases in summer, where the Sun is at it’s strongest and brightest, to a top-notch 100%, again indicating massive savings. Tariffs are paid on the amount of solar energy and these payments are tax free.
Most solar panels attached to Solar Thermal Systems are highly efficient and provide the highest level of results with regards to exposure and absorption of the sunlight. Most installations are mounted on the rooftops to get the best advantages from the system. The glass protecting the panels is very durable and can withstand tons of pressure. Panels are also coated with special material which enhances their quality and effectiveness. They are compatible with various other types of systems, which means that if you are not happy with the performance after a while, you could very well adapt to another system.
Solar Thermal – Just what you Need, when you Need it
Solar Thermal Systems can also be designed specifically for your needs. Suppliers are able to offer various models and variations from which to choose from. The position of the panels on the roof should always face south by at least 90 degrees. Anything less than this might compromise the quality or amount of sunlight. Just remember that the reason whey they are called solar is because they were designed to work with the Sun. Should this be at a premium then it is likely that you will not be overly happy with the results. Thermal panels are also heavier than PV panels but 3 panels should be enough to cover your daily needs.
It is, as advised earlier, possible to combine different Solar Thermal Systems with others, as long as they are compatible. But, to be certain that this falls in line with requirements set by government agencies, it is always best to check with the suppliers before agreeing to it, as if no certificate is provided by them, then it is likely that you will not get paid for tariffs or other incentives. Apart from this, costs might rise even higher when trying to connect older models with newer ones. You certainly don’t what to spend more than you have to.
