Schematics for evacuated solar tubes in the United Kingdom with installations and installers
Evacuated solar tubes are an alternative water heating system, developed especially for northern European countries. The power of the sun to heat domestic tanks and swimming pools in the UK climate too.
Evacuated solar tubes.
In a nutshell.
Evacuated tubes, commonly known as solar tubes, are amongst the most efficient of all solar heating panels.
An evacuated solar tube installation is like converting a car into a hybrid running on LPG. After the initial investment, your car or in this case, your home will run cheaply for the 30 years while extending the life of your existing boiler by up to 60%.
What sets a quality system apart is modernising and bringing the heating system up to modern 'building regulation' standards. Installing solar technology is only a small part of that.
Contrary to popular belief, these work throughout all four seasons.
Solar panels heat up due to the sun's short-wave radiation output converting to long-wave radiation.
