As a Plumber in Plymouth, we use the latest renewable technology so you as a customer gets the most efficient renewable energy package. Solar water heating systems use free heat from the sun to warm domestic hot water. A conventional boiler or immersion heater is then used to make the water hotter or to provide hot water when solar energy is unavailable.

Reduce your energy bills by up to 60%* with Worcester Greenskies Solar Panels

Solar hot water systems (also known as Solar Thermal) harness heat from sunlight by capturing energy which is radiated by the sun within solar panels or collectors.

Solar Water Heating is not to be confused with Solar PV (PhotoVoltaic), which is designed to generate electricity. Worcester does not currently sell Solar PV as our main focus is delivering heating and hot water comfort.

This heat energy is then moved down pipes to the hot water cylinder within your home, reducing the need to use Gas, Oil or Electricity to heat the hot water you require; lowering energy bills as well as your carbon footprint.

Does solar thermal really work in Plymouth?

Contrary to popular belief the amount of solar radiation received across the UK makes our country ideally suited to delivering a highly efficient solar water heating system.

The South-west is the most optimal place in the United Kingdom for solar hot water.

Do I need planning permission?

Unless your home is a listed building or in a conservation area, planning permission is unlikely to be required as fitting solar panels or collectors would typically be covered by the right to permitted development. Our Plymouth based heating engineers will be able to advise you.

What is a typical saving?

A typical well-sized solar water heating system can provide up to 60%* of your annual hot water requirement* leading to reduced energy bills. You also will be making a significant contribution to reducing your carbon footprint.

Do solar thermal systems only work on a south facing house?

It is always best to fit your solar panels or collectors on a south facing roof however if your property has a suitable roof surface which faces towards the east and west then you may be able to still benefit from a Greenskies solar thermal system.
