What Is a Solar Thermal Panel?


A solar thermal system uses the energy from the sun to heat up water to use in the home.

The way a solar thermal panel works is quite simple: it absorbs the heat from the sun with panels that are called solar collectors. The heated water or heat-transfer fluid then runs from the collectors to your hot water cylinder.

This way a solar water heating system can provide your home with free heated water.

Solar thermal panels are not to be confused with solar panels, which use the energy from the sun to generate electricity. As such, solar panels and solar thermals are two very different technologies.

Using solar energy has many advantages, among them the money saved on energy bills, the reduction of your carbon footprint and the low maintenance, making solar thermal a great investment.
