Solar thermal water heating
A solar thermal water heating system uses the free energy from the sun to heat domestic hot water.
The technology is simple, effective and sustainable which is good for the environment - now and in the future.
Baxi has three powerful solar thermal heating options:
- Baxi Solarflo on-roof collector panels
- Baxi Solarflo in-roof collector panels
- Baxi Solarflo evacuated tube collectors
Effectiveness of solar heating
During the summer months, a solar water heating system can generate up to 90% of the hot water required for an average household; even on duller days some hot water can be produced, with the remainder being provided either by a conventional boiler or electric immersion heater. On average, a well-designed solar heating system will generate around 55% of the annual domestic hot water demand while also substantially reducing carbon emissions.
