Safe & Protect Solar offer bespoke designed solar thermal hot water systems for any size of application from small domestic systems to large commercial scale projects. Our thermal systems are designed to match the individual requirements of the clients and are configured to achieve maximum possible efficiency.
A Safe & Protect solar thermal system can supply up to 70% of your annual hot water requirement for free. In the summer it could be as much as 95%, and through the winter months the solar energy will ‘pre-heat’ the incoming cold water, resulting in a significantly reduced dependency on the primary hot water supply from the boiler system. See below for more information about the potential savings.
80-90% of your hot water in the summer
40-50% of your hot water in the spring and autumn
10-15% of your hot water in the winter
It is also feasible that the system can also be designed to contribute towards heating your home substantially reducing heating bills over the course of the year.
The biggest savings will be made if your hot water is currently heated by electricity, followed by oil and then gas. However, the actual savings you’ll make on your bills will depend on how you use your hot water. To get a better idea of how much you could save, arrange your free survey today.
In closed-loop thermal systems, the fluid that circulates from the tubes to the water cylinder will never come into contact with the water that you get from your tap.
