- Finally, we’ll complete a BER survey to ensure your new Solar Thermal Heating System is working efficiently
- You can now relax and start enjoying all the benefits of your new Solar Thermal Heating System.
How it works
The collectors capture and absorb the sun’s radiation. This energy is then conducted by the fluid flowing through the collector.
Controller & Pump
The controller monitors the temperature differential between the cylinder and collector. The controller switches on the pump when the cylinder requests heat from the collector.
The pump circulates the heat from the collector through the pre-insulated flexible stainless steel pipes to the insulated cylinder.
Tank, Coil and Taps
The coil conducts the heat and the resulting hot water flows from the outlet valve for use throughout the home.
