Welcome to Sustainable Homes Ireland's listing page for Solar Hot Water Installation Contractors in your area.
Some brief information on Solar Hot Water.
In this renewable method of generating heat, energy is extracted from the Sun's rays via roof-mounted solar panels. The solar panels heat a liquid which is contained in a closed-loop pipe system. The liquid flows through the pipe and enters a copper heating coil in the hot water storage cylinder. The surrounding water in the cylinder gets heated by the coil.
Advantages of Solar Hot Water:
- Free heat during daylight hours; hottest when the Sun is shining.
- Zero carbon emissions.
- Improved BER energy rating.
- Lower energy bills.
Disavantages of Solar Hot Water:
- Intial installation costs can be high.
- Solar panels should ideally be facing south which may not be possible for some individual dwellings.
