Solar is a versatile, highly-efficient, low-maintenance solution for your hot water needs. When averaged over the year a correctly sized solar water heating system can provide up to 70% of a households hot water needs at negligible cost. Solar Power is available all year round, it even works on hazy and overcast days. The efficiency however is higher and more savings can be made from March until September. During the winter season the system will still be able to provide heat to supplement the primary heat source and thus reduce the running cost of the boiler or heat pump.
The warmth and comfort we feel from the sun on a cool spring day or in front of a crackling fire on a cold winter’s night is radiant heat. Radiant floor heating uses a very subtle form of this same radiant energy. Radiant heat gently and evenly warms the surfaces of objects in the room. The air in the room is warmed when it comes into contact with the warmed objects, the largest of which is the floor. Heat loss is reduced and the radiant heat remains in the lower part of the room warmer near feet level and slightly less so at head level
