Solar Heating

Sometimes known as STE or Solar Thermal Energy, it is technology for generating heat from the sun. A collector directly generates heat from the sun – warming up water which is then used for heating or other domestic comforts such as showers and baths.

There are two designs of solar water heating devices you can places on your roof. There are evacuated tubes and flat plate collectors. Some flat plates collectors can be fixed on the roof tiles or integrated into the roof. Solar heating is a mature technology that has been around for many many years and continues to gain widespread momentum as the cost of fossil fuels continues to rise and the cost of heating, powering and lighting out homes soars in the face of global events and supply issues.
