Solar PV panels used to heat up your UK house

The rise in popularity of solar panels in the UK

Solar energy is rapidly gaining popularity due to the significant price decreases in solar panels, government subsidies and an increasing environmental awareness. In 2014 alone solar power output almost doubled compared to 2013 with almost 5 GW of solar photovoltaic panels installed. That was enough to supply 1.5 homes with electricity.

Last year alone over 700.000 homes had solar panels installed. With panels becoming ever more increasingly effective, more and more power is generated through solar energy. By January 2017 nearly 12 megawatts capacity of solar PV panels had been installed. This ranks UK 6th worldwide in terms of total installed capacity.

Solar power in the year 2020

The British government expects at least 22 Megawatt to be generated by solar PV panels by the year 2020. The solar trade organization expects that number to be around 25 Megawatt. Potentially up to 40% of the UK’s total electricity can be generated with solar power in 2020. Experts say that in that year up to 10 million homes could rely on solar power.

How can you use your solar power to the fullest?  

Instead of selling surplus electricity back to your electricity company you could use it yourself. Have you ever considered installing an electric central heating boiler to use electricity to heat your house?

The benefits of an electric system boiler are:

·   Use power generated by the sun to supply your electric system boiler

·   You will no longer require gas, so you can save significantly on your utility bill

·   No more risk of explosion from escaping gas

·   Zero chance of carbon monoxide poisoning

·   Low maintenance. No more yearly maintenance

·   No flue gas vent required

To underline the quality, in the 4 years that we have sold Elterm electric central heating boiler we have never had any returns or reports of malfunctioning of a single boiler. Please look for Elterm electric system boilers on our webpage.

Reduce your energy bill by installing an energy-efficient ECO water heater

With the cost of energy ever-increasing people are purchasing more and more energy-efficient household appliances. If you are looking to economize then an eco boiler is a good way to reduce your utility bill. Moreover, you can also contribute by being more environmentally conscious with an energy-efficient electric water heater.

The highly insulated electric ECO water heater stays warmer for much longer. A smart eco controller diminishes the electrical losses significantly. It als monitors the temperature constantly and only warms up when needed. Consult the eco water heater page for the entire collection.

We now stock three brands with eco boilers; Ariston, Wesen and Lemet. Lemet offers the Ecoway series.

In brief here are the benefits:

  • A self-programming function that gauges your hot water use during 2-3 weeks. It then sets a program tailored to your requirements

  • An ECO function that diminishes electrical leakage drastically leading to reduced energy usage

Ariston has:

  • Self-learning ECO EVO function that paired with the intelligent thermostat significantly economizes on energy consumption. Only warming the tanks for when you normally use hot water in the number of litres you normally use up.   

 Wesen has two series. Both being energy-friendly. Here are the specifics for a Wesen electric boiler:

  • ECO Controller that has an intelligent thermostat. This accurately sets the temperature and monitors the temperature only warming up when it needs to. An energy-friendly method of warming your electric water heater

  • PUR insulation foam that preserves the water temperature better than ever before

 In two months from now we will feature a new serie of electric water heaters on our site. The Wesen enamel steel water heater range. An energy-friendly, flat and attractively designed unit that has energy class B.
