If not, you really should!

Increasingly, householders are investing in greener, more modern methods of heating their homes and water. Solar power is rapidly becoming the favourite scheme and solar installers are now very much part of the heating business.

It is widely accepted that the use of alternative technologies in our homes has many advantages both to ourselves and the environment. Solar powered hot water or space heating is readily available, nowadays, from registered solar installers and will, in due course, more than pay for its installation, in energy savings.

A basic solar heating system works by installing solar panels, usually on the house roof and linking them to a hot water storage tank in the loft/attic. Unless the householder is a competent plumber, electrician and climber, the installation of a solar heating system is best left to professional Solar installers.

A trawl through a directory or the internet will show that there are a good number of solar installers available around the country. Many companies were originally plumbers and electricians, working on conventional heating systems. In this capacity, these companies would be on the Gas Safety Register and NICIEC registered.

So with sound trade credentials already in place, companies who also had “green” tendencies increased their activities into the fitting of solar heating systems. This new discipline in the heating industry carries its own system of qualifications and solar installers will be members of the Solar Trades Association, or similar, and have satisfied the association’s standards.

Although the householder may end up with solar installers in their attic, they will start with them on the roof. Roofs are the favourite site for placing solar panels. South-facing roofs are best, to maximize catching the sunlight which is the basic power source for the panels.

The solar panels will then need to be linked to a hot water storage facility. If there is a hot water tank already available, then it will simply require a link from one to the other. If not, your solar installers will provide a new hot water tank and link it with the panels.

Having got your solar installers down from the attic, they will be able to continue the link with your hot water system, boiler or central heating to complete the facility.

There are a number of different systems of solar panels and water heating available. Good solar installers will be able to assess the premises and advise householders which system will be most effective in their particularly property.

Few solar installers are tied to a particularly supplier of solar panels and so their advice can be as varied as the many systems available. With the wide variety of houses, particularly the older types, a custom-made solar hot water system can be essential. They will be able to design a system to fit your home, hot water needs and pocket.

So, start helping to save the earth’s resources with an energy saving hot water/heating system and let your solar installers provide all the “green” expertise and skill to make this possible.
