Almost certainly, yes. Solar water heating is suitable for the vast majority of homes in the UK. You will need:
Ideally a south-facing roof – but anything between east and west will work well; in extreme cases we can install an extra collector to compensate if the aspect of your roof is not ideal.
Enough space to fit the panels on your roof (panels are roughly 1m by 2m, and most homes need two);
Space for a solar water cylinder.
The roof should ideally be at 30 and 50º to the horizontal, but there is some flexibility (36º is said to be the optimum for the UK). We can also install collectors on flat roofs using metal framework.
Unless you already have a water cylinder with a solar coil, we will need to replace your existing hot water cylinder with a new one that has an additional heat exchanger coil (this new cylinder is included in our prices). Typically the new cylinders are larger than ones we replace, and are preferably tall and thin.to
