                                   Facts about solar water heating

A typical solar heating system will:

· provide 50 to 70% of your hot water
· last between 20 and 30 years.
· require very little maintenance.
· improve the energy rating of your home.

In a typical 3 to 4 bedroom family home this can:

· cut fuel bills by £50 to £100 per year.*
· cut use of gas or oil to zero in the summer.
· cut carbon emissions by 0.5 to 1.0 tonne per year.
   *(based on 2005 fuel prices)

A solar heating system does not:

· heat your house, though large systems can help.
· generate electricity.
· need you to control it, as it is fully automatic.

Solar heating works in direct sunlight and on overcast days.
A south-facing roof is not essential for solar heating
Systems can be roof integrated or fixed above the roof surface.
Solar heating can be fitted to homes with combi boilers.
Solar water heating can be used for swimming pools.

Typical systems cost from £3,000 to £4,500 installed.

Systems fitted by accredited installers are currently eligible for Government “Clear Skies” grants of £400 per system and VAT is only 5%

Pay back periods at current (2005) fuel prices are between 10 and 20 years, but as gas and oil prices continue to rise this will reduce.
