1. Solar heating benefits
3. Solar heating installation
The solar panels are pre-assembled, and click into each other. The available standard lengths are 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 meters. We also produce to measure. The collectors have 32, 38mm and 50mm connections to glue.
The installation is often done on the roof of a garden shed or car port. We advise you to first place a concrete grid, and fix the solar collectors with our polyester tapes on the grid.
The ideal location is a 30° angle to the south. By placing the sensors horizontally, only 10% of capacity is lost.
Important note for UK and Ireland customers
Suitable metric to UK inch standard adapters will be provided upon delivery without extra charge
4. Solar heating distribution and automation
The automatic valve diverts the water to the sensors as soon as the temperature of the sensors is higher than the water temperature.
At a temperature of 32°C (adjustable), the valve will send the water directly to the pool.
We have automatic, simple and Wifi valves. All valves are 100% pre-assembled.
In a combined heat pump and solar collector installation, the water is first passed through the solar collector. The heat pump is set at 2-4°C less than normal (setpoint 24-26°C).
The life time of solar collectors is 10-20 years.
