Grant Solar thermal water heating systems
Fit for the future
Utilising the power of the sun is an excellent alternative to traditional energy sources. With zero CO2 emissions and an inexhaustible supply of sunshine (even in the UK!) solar technology is good for the environment and is an excellent way for homeowners to reduce their carbon footprint as part of a wider lifestyle choice. Adding solar heating technology to a property also increases its value – houses with solar heating are less prone to the fluctuation in heating prices, making them an attractive option for potential buyers.
Why solar thermal?
Solar thermal is a clean and sustainable method of providing homes with hot water. As with all Grant products the technology is simple but highly efficient, providing an environmentally responsible and cost effective alternative to traditional energy sources.
The basic principle is easy to explain. If you leave a garden hose on the ground exposed to the sun, in a short time the water within will become hot. Solar thermal collectors work in very much the same way, only more efficiently. Roof-mounted solar collectors are connected to a coil containing a special glycol/ water solution. This heated fluid is circulated from the panel to a cylinder where the heat is transferred to produce hot water.
Typically, a solar thermal system can save you up to 70% on your annual hot water heating costs – so it’s good for the planet and good for your wallet too!
The benefits of Grant Solar Thermal?
Grant Solar provides an efficient and environmentally responsible solution to the use of fossil fuels. All Grant products and components are rigorously tested to ensure the highest standards of quality and reliability and over time deliver significant cost savings.
Grant Solar collectors can be installed on sloping roofs using either an on-roof or in-roof mounting system or on flat roofs if required, and the self-cleaning glass keeps maintenance to a minimum.
