Solar Hot Water Systems


There are two major solar hot water systems we can offer at Abbey, enabling us to choose which one would be best for your situation. If ground space is not a problem around your home then a ground mounted split system might be the way to go. Roof mounted collectors, heat the water and feeds down to a ground mounted tank. This system retains the aesthetic integrity of your roof and allows more flexibility of installation. The thermosiphon roof mounted system couples the tank and collector together and are mounted on the roof. This system is ideal for those with limited ground space around the home. The thermosiphon uses natural thermal convection that circulates and heats the water around the collectors and stores it in the tank.

If you're thinking about solar hot water heating as a serious option to your current system, call us at Abbey and we'll give you all the information you need to make an informed decision. If you decide solar is the way to go, we can have our expert team visit you to choose the right system for your property and install it to the highest standards. Once the unit is operational, you'll be enjoying the benefits of clean and natural, cheap hot water well into the future.
