Solar Thermal Systems

Hot shower

Solar panels or solar tubes are now a common site on Irish roofs. This is because the benefits are there for everyone to see and we have learned that the technology does work IF it's installed correctly. It is of paramount importance that this equipment is supplied and installed by experienced and expert personnel and not by cowboy operators who often offer cheap prices and quick installations. These cheap systems often don't have the correct components and may not withstand the high temperatures often endured during solar heating, leading to high maintenance and repair bills. Contact us today to talk to our experienced team and learn more about our systems.

Solar thermal is almost exclusively for Domestic Hot Water (in Ireland), heating water in a cylinder for everyday uses such as bathing and cleaning. The technology can also be used to provide space heating although this is uncommon in this country due to the lack of sunlight hours during the months in which it would be most needed. Please beware of unscrupulous providers who will try to sell you solar technology for heating! Logically thinking, when we have so little sunlight in winter and so much in summer time, how could it make sense for heating our homes?

Solar Technology is not a new phenomenon. It has in fact been used since the 7th Century BC! What we now know as passive solar, was used by the ancient Greeks and Romans as a means to light and heat their buildings and save on heating fuel.

How ironic that 2,800 years later, we are still doing exactly the same thing. We still use passive solar in the design of our buildings and now also more advanced technologies such as solar thermal collectors and solar PV. These are used to harness the power of the sun in water heating and electricity generation applications.

In Ireland, we don’t have very high levels of direct sunlight compared to other parts of the world, but we can still achieve substantial levels of output from solar thermal technologies. Comfort Solutions Ireland provides high-end solar collectors and products which do not require direct sunlight in order to operate very productively. We supply all required accessories to accompany our collectors such as pumping stations, control panels, piping, fluids, etc. We carry out installations through-out Connaught and only use fully trained, fully qualified technicians to carry out these installations. Furthermore, we maintain our systems and can even look at maintaining or repairing other systems if your supplier has left you with no back-up service.
