Solar Hot Water

Solar hot water systems (also known as solar thermal systems) have the capability of harnessing the suns energy in order to help warm a domestic water supply. A conventional boiler is often incorporated into the design of such systems in order to provide a sufficient and reliable hot water supply.

Solar thermal systems should not be confused with solar photovoltaic (PV) systems as a PV based system is designed to generate electricity using conventional solar panels.
