Howdoes
solar thermal
technologywork?
1.
The solar panels collect energy from
the sun which increases temperature
of the heat transfer fluid contained
within the panels.
2.
When the fluid in the panels is hot
enough, the pump station circulates
the hot fluid around the system.
3.
The hot fluid is pumped around the
coil at the bottom of the solar cylinder
and heats the water that is stored inside.
4.
The solar controller enables you to time
your hot water, just like a central heating
programmer, and measure the amount of
energy you have gained from the sun.
5.
If the solar panel didn’t collect enough
energy to heat the hot water to the
required temperature, a supplementary
heat source (e.g. gas or oil boiler) is
required to top up the water temperature.
6.
Hot water can then be used through
your taps, bath and showers.
