Domestic Solar Hot Water

Solar hot water systems in the home can produce 50%-60% of your total hot water requirements

By using the unlimited solar resource that the sun provides us installing a solar hot water system in your house could reduce your annual bills by 10% or more.

Heating hot water makes up around 15%-20% of a households bills. This could be more if water is heated using electricity. Using solar hot water alongside different fuels will make a big difference to the financial savings and also the carbon saving.

Solar thermal technology is also one of the most effective ways of reducing carbon emissions, By installing a Caplor Energy solar hot water system you will not only be creating a clean, efficient home but helping in the fight against climate change.

These systems use solar panels to heat water rather than electricity like solar PV. The hot water is stored for use later in a cylinder and can easily provide a large proportion of a homes hot water usage  from the solar energy. See how it works for a more detailed explanation.

With increasing fuel bills for domestic consumers along with the environmental impact of fossil fuels, a solar thermal system can make a big difference in creating an efficient clean home.

Caplor Energy can provide a typical domestic solar hot water system from around £4500-£5000. Call us and talk to one of our knowledgeable team on 01432 860644.

Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI)

You can recoup all your costs when installing Solar Hot Water with the Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive launched in Spring 2014 and the now established Non-Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive. This is a Government initiative to encourage home owners, land lords and business owners to replace inefficient and polluting heating systems. It is the first of its kind, and is expected to help achieve the UK’s reduction in carbon emissions target. Click on the link above to find out how you can benefit.

Swimming Pools

If you are fortunate enough to have a swimming pool then solar thermal is a fantastic way of heating your pool and reducing the running cost at the same time. A large solar thermal array can easily provide more than 70% of the pool’s heating requirement and can also be connected to provide domestic hot water at the same time. A double solar win!


Our solar thermal systems are designed in house specifically to each customers requirement, whether a large family in a house with multiple bedrooms or a couple in a small bungalow. The amount of money and CO2 that you save will be dependent upon your consumption, the fossil fuel type that you are replacing, and the energy efficiencies of both your building and boiler.

There are huge benefits in using solar hot water.

  • Reduce your fossil fuel consumption and hence CO2 emissions
  • Save money on fuel that you would have otherwise needed to purchase
  • Enhance the life of your boiler by reducing the amount of switch-on / offs
  • Low maintenance technology
  • Integrates with existing heating or other renewable sources
  • Solar Thermal is backed by Government incentives to reward consumers who invest in green technology
  • Low cost and simple way for you or your company to contribute towards tackling climate change
