Solar thermal panels, sometimes referred to as thermal collectors are simply, a mixture of water and antifreeze encapsulated within pipework. When the sun heats up the water within the pipes, this is then used to warm a water tank within a property.
When fitted to a roof, this simple but efficient system can provide your property with hot water all throughout the year.
There are two main types of solar thermal collectors available; Flat plates and evacuated tubes. Both work in the same way; harness the heat from the sun to generate hot water. The small difference in design makes evacuated tubes more efficient when the angle of the sun is not at optimum. But as there is a such small difference in efficiency, the most common choice made by homeowners is Flat plates. The sleek design of a glass panel neatly integrates into the roof, or partnered with a solar PV system.
