There is an array of reasons why you should switch to solar energy systems in your home. Here is a selection of the most important:
A: You will need permission for a listed building or if the building is located in a conservation area. It is very important to check with Local Building Control in ALL cases.
A: The panels rely on daylight not just sunlight, so the panels’ functions will not be hindered in the UK.
A: Usually the size is 2m x 1.5m x 2m for standard equipment, however this varies, depending on hot water demand.
A: The panels can be surface mounted; therefore it’s not necessary to remove tiles.
A: No, solar panels will not affect the stability of your roof or pose a danger, as we use fully qualified professionals for installations
A: Yes, South West but South East is also satisfactory.
A: High efficiency condensing boilers convert over 88% of their energy into heat, compared to 78% for conventional types. They recover as much waste heat as possible, which is normally discarded into the atmosphere via the duct of a conventional (non-condensing) boiler.
A: Boilers carry a rating based on the percentage of fuel they use that is converted to heat. This rating is called SEDBUK – Seasonal Efficiency of Domestic Boilers in the UK. SEDBUK ratings range from A to G – A-rated boilers being more than 90% efficient, which are the only ones to carry the energy saving logo.
A: Yes you can, but if the existing radiator is not oversized, it will need to be replaced.
A: They can be internal and external.
A: Internal and external pumps look slightly different. Depending on the output, the internal pumps are usually the size of a washing machine and are enclosed in a white case. The external units typically come in a weatherproof unit.
A: In most cases no, but always check with Local Building Control.
A: Very little but manufacturers recommend an inspection every two years.
A: Yes. Along with a thermal store you can connect an open fire with a back boiler.
