Solar thermal systems FAQs

A solar thermal system offers two important benefits when compared to a traditional heating system. Firstly, an important saving in energy, as the energy harnessed from the sun is free of charge. Secondly, a reduction in the environment-damaging carbon emissions generated by energy produced by fossil fuels.

There are many advantages of solar thermal energy, namely:

  • It is renewable and does not deplete our limited natural resources
  • Using solar energy is better for the environment, as doesn’t release harmful greenhouse gases or other pollutants
  • You reduce your energy bills considerably
  • Solar thermal maintenance is usually minimal
  • Solar thermal systems usually have a long life span and are fairly durable

As mentioned, there are many benefits of solar thermal energy. However, when choosing solar panels for home use, your options might seem daunting.

Considerations include: the climate/weather, the location and size of your home, the roof structure, your household’s energy requirements and your budget.

As experts in solar thermal installation, we can provide you with advice and guidance on choosing the right system for your home and lifestyle.

Wondering whether solar thermal systems need to be serviced? Solar thermal systems are a sturdy and cost-effective water heating solution. While they are fairly low maintenance, it is advisable to have your solar thermal system inspected regularly.

So why do solar thermal systems need to be serviced? Regular solar thermal maintenance checks will ensure that every part is in perfect working order and minor repairs can be carried out. Solar thermal systems are typically located on the roof of buildings, and this can make them somewhat susceptible to damage in the event of adverse weather conditions.

We recommend that you follow the system manufacturer’s guidelines for maintenance and service to ensure everything is operating safely and efficiently.
