Yes! Solar heating systems work on overcast days. The sun still emits radiation, even when there is no direct sunlight and it is this radiation that is used to heat up the water.
The rough cost of a domestic solar thermal installation will be between £3000 and £5000. However, this will vary from home to home, depending on a number of factors. It is possible to obtain solar panel grants through a number of schemes, including the Low Carbon Buildings programme. Our advisors are knowledgeable on all the current grants available and will be able to assist you in obtaining any funding assistance for which you may be eligible.
Solar panels or collectors are placed on the roof of a house. These panels collect the energy from the sun, using it to heat a fluid. This fluid is then circulated and the heat is transferred into your hot water cylinders.
