Solar panels can be used for hot water heating which allow the consumer to take advantage of renewable and sustainable energy.

Solar panels harness the power in both direct and diffused sunlight and convert the energy to heat for the production of hot water for the home.

The majority of solar panels have been designed as a complement to existing heating systems which use a store of hot water in a cylinder. The existing cylinder is exchanged for a cylinder with two heat exchanger coils; one from the boiler in the property and a second from the solar panels.

Solar panels are perfect partners to modern condensing regular and system boilers which require a separate cylinder for the storage of hot water. When used together, a high efficiency boiler and solar system provide a highly efficient system to give heating and hot water comfort.

A typical well sized solar system should provide around 50-70% of the domestic hot water requirements of a home, representing a very worthwhile saving on hot water heating costs. The remaining hot water requirement is provided by the boiler.
