Solar Energy in the UK and Ireland

Solar Thermal Ireland

Solar Thermal systems are designed to heat your hot water cylinder and in some cases contribute towards your heating. It may also help you with your building regulations on a new build project. Solar energy in the UK and Ireland is far greater than most people imagine. In the summer, when items such as car bodies are often too hot to touch, we become aware of the sun's heat. However, even in the spring and autumn and on clear winter days we receive very useful amounts of solar energy. By tilting a surface to an angle the amount of solar radiation falling on it will be greater than that falling on a flat surface in this country. Fortunately, the average tilt of a house roof is about the optimum for receiving solar energy.

The average property requires approximately 3,000 kWh per year for domestic water heating.

The map shows the total average solar radiation falling on one square metre surface inclined at 30° to the horizontal, measured in kilowatt hours.These figures bring out the remarkable fact that the amount of solar energy falling on the total roof area of an average house is many times that required to provide all its heating and hot water.

We must note that there is a large difference between the radiation available in the summer and that available in winter. Active solar heating systems will typically convert 40 to 50% of the solar energy falling on the solar collectors into useful heated water.

What Will Solar Contribute?

A Positive Environmental Impact
Burning fossil fuels produces vast quantities of carbon dioxide, a major contributor to global warming.The average household with a Thermomax system installed can expect to generate approximately 2,256 kWh/year with zero emissions.

Solar Performance and Savings

Performance and Savings

Thermomax products have been designed specifically for Northern climates:

  • Supplies up to 70% of your annual hot water needs
  • Works from dawn until dusk and throughout the year
  • Provides heat even in cold, windy or humid conditions
  • Rapid conductivity and transfer of energy into heat
  • more effective than flat plate collector

Kingspan Thermomax Solar Systems

Thermomax Evacuated Tubes
Greenhouse have been a Kingspan recommended installer for nearly 10 years. Green-house is commiteed to only Installing Kingspan Thermomax Solar Systems for home and industrial heating. The quality and 20 year guarantee is very important to us. Kingspan Renewables was established in late summer 2007, when Kingspan Group plc acquired the Thermomax brand of solar vacuum tubes. Thermomax was the Solar Thermal market leader and originator of the respected heat pipe method, effectively creating solar hot water in northern climates.
