Solar Thermal Systems

Solar thermal water heating systems offer a smart financial choice for both new builds and existing properties. By harnessing sunlight, these systems produce hot water, which can be used to meet your household’s hot water needs and supplement your existing wet central heating system, if applicable. This efficient use of energy can significantly reduce your energy bills.
At Sunlite Group, we understand that every household has unique heating requirements. That’s why we offer a personalised approach, designing a high-quality solution tailored to your specific needs. We start with an initial consultation over the phone, followed by a no-obligation, free technical survey with one of our experienced Solar thermal engineers.

What is Solar Thermal?

Energy from sunlight is absorbed by the solar panel and converted to heat energy. This heat is then removed by a heat transfer liquid, usually water or antifreeze. In most systems, a small pump is required to circulate the heat transfer fluid to where it is immediately needed or to a store from which it can be used later. In the case of solar hot water systems, this is usually a hot water cylinder.
A backup heat source is required to ensure the water is heated to a sufficient temperature on days when light levels are limited. The water in the cylinder is then fed to your taps and showers to provide hot water for your home. There are many different types of solar water heating systems, and we will advise you on which is best for you.
