Advanced Green Energy provides a comprehensive solar thermal service which uses the sun’s warmth to heat some of your hot water.
How does it work?
Solar panels on your roof contain fluid, which absorbs irradiance from the sun. This is then pumped through pipes to your hot water cylinder which heats the water to a preset temperature. Your boiler or heater then uses this to top up the heat as required, so you can enjoy peace of mind that you’re saving money every time you run a hot bath
Solar thermal systems run best in summer months, when they can heat up to 90% of your hot water. However, you’ll still save money all-year-round.
How we do it
We offer two types of solar thermal panels: high efficiency evacuated tube solar panels and high efficiency flat plate solar panels. Both offer a range of similar benefits and we will be happy to discuss the best product to suit your needs.
Evacuated tube solar panels are incredibly cost effective and high-performing in the UK climate. Slimline, they suit most architecture, and in most cases will not need planning permission.
With a very low heat capacity, these panels heat up quickly when the sun shines and should provide you with free hot water for at least 6 months of the year.
Flat plate solar panels are incredibly reliable and cost effective, and as these plates can be integrated like a Velux window, they are often favoured for new builds or those wanting a more aesthetically pleasing result.
Our solar thermal systems are closed-loop, which means that the water circulated within the panels never comes into contact with the water that comes out of your taps.
