Commercial Solar Thermal

Commercial Solar Thermal systems for businesses can reduce fuel bills, and generate an income for producing hot water


Solar thermal heating systems use free heat from the sun to warm water. This offers businesses multiple benefits and solar thermal systems are very well suited for those with high levels of hot water use, particularly when there is a large requirement between spring and autumn. Government backed Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) payments combined with fuel savings make the payback time for a commercial solar thermal system very short, usually between 5 and 10 years, while providing an ongoing investment for the life of the system.

Based in Herefordshire our experienced MCS accredited team designs and installs solar thermal systems for commercial properties throughout the UK. We use a range of high quality solar thermal products to ensure that the most efficient hot water system is installed for your building and energy needs.

The Benefits of Solar Thermal

  • Free hot water- Solar thermal works all year round, though you will need to heat the water further with a boiler or immersion heater during the winter months.
  • Reduced energy bills- Sunlight is free, so once you’ve paid for the initial installation your hot water costs will be reduced and you will be protected against future price rises.
  • Lower your carbon footprint- Solar hot water is a green, renewable heating system and can reduce your carbon dioxide emissions.
  • Eligable for RHI-  Receive government backed Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) payments for every unit of heat you generate.

Maintenance

Maintenance costs for solar thermal systems are generally very low. Once fitted Caplor will leave written details of any maintenance checks that you can carry out from time to time to ensure everything is working properly.

For peace of mind we are able to offer an annual service check and it will be necessary to have your system checked more thoroughly every 3 years. It is likely that after this period of time, the anti-freeze that is used to protect your system in the winter months will need to topped up or be replaced.

Whether you provide a few showers for your employees or use 1000’s of liters of hot water a day, Caplor Energy can design a system to your requirement using our in house specialists.
