Solar thermal installation services
World Heat designs and installs solar thermal systems. Please continue reading for more information about what solar thermal is. Send us an enquiry if you would like to speak with us about your requirements. World Heat can also, if required, install loft insulation.
Solar thermal hot water systems are currently the most common form of domestic renewable energy generation. Generally, they are used for water heating, providing up to 60% of your annual hot water demands. They use a fluid which is passed through the solar panel then usually through a hot water cylinder transferring the heat energy from one to the other.
We install both flat panel and evacuated tube systems manufactured by the leading European manufacturers. All the panels are MCS approved so will be eligible for the Renewable Heat Incentives or grant funding that may be introduced in the future.
– Solar roof systems fall under permitted development rights as they do not protrude more than 20cm above a roof so you do not need planning permission. Although if you live in an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty or in a listed building you should contact your local council for advice.
– To claim the Feed-in Tariff, both the PV equipment and the installer must be Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) approved. MCS consists of assessments that all equipment and installation companies must pass on an annual basis to be able to display the MCS logo and offer the available tariffs.
The scheme ensures that all systems installed by MCS accredited companies are consistently to the highest standard possible. Both World Heat Ltd and the equipment supplier we use are certified under the MCS scheme for PV, Air Source Heat Pumps and solar thermal systems.
