What do you need to know about solar heating system installation?
Solar heating can save you a great deal not just on your energy bill but also your property’s carbon footprint. It can also add thousands to a property’s value. Do not take this at face value though: you will need to get your property assessed to properly determine whether it is economical to have such a system installed. The assessment will also highlight what work would be necessary for the installation: if your water cylinder or boiler is not compatible with solar panels then your other units will have to be replaced.
It is possible to get government funding to have solar panels installed as part of the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI). However, if you buy solar panels yourself you can receive payment for the excess energy you generate. The cost of installing a solar water heating system should be between £3000 and £5000, though once again there are a lot of potential savings to be made on bills.
Companies that work with solar panels are most often ‘specialists’ that will have options available for you to compare online, in addition to close relations with suppliers. It is important to look over the credentials of any tradesmen or companies you are considering. Are the tradesmen qualified? Have their previous clients been satisfied? They may well be a part of a national organisation of installers, or an association relating to the promotion of clean energy. Your installer should also be able to provide you with a guarantee in the event that your system is installed incorrectly or needs repairs in the future.
