Solar Thermal

On average, every home spends 20-25% of its combined annual energy bills on heating water!  A well designed solar hot water system can provide almost all the hot water for a home during the summer months and around 50-60% all year round.

Solar water heating systems are cost-effective and reduce fuel bills and carbon dioxide emissions. The fossil fuels produced from burning coal and gas for domestic heating hugely contribute to the green-house effect. By generating your own heating from solar panels, this can be dramatically reduced, improving your carbon footprint, and making your house more environmentally friendly.

TLGEC install solar water heating systems that efficiently and effectively heat water that is stored in a cylinder, ready for use whenever you need it.

How it Works

Heat from the sun is used to heat the solar panels.  The liquid in the panels (a mixture of water and antifreeze) is pumped into a coil in the hot water cylinder, which then heats the water in the cylinder.  A conventional boiler is also used to keep the water hot on bad weather days and through the winter months.  Thus, giving you hot water all year round.

Solar Thermal is not only used to heat the water in your home, but can also be used for swimming pools and in commercial premises.
