Domestic Installations

Typical installation costs are illustrated below:

2 to 3 Bed Properties: £2,500 to £3,500

3 to 4 Bed Properties: £3,000 to £4,000

4 to 5 Bed Properties: £3,500 to £5,000

VAT for the installation of solar thermal systems is charged at 5%.

Commercial Installations

Commercial installations can have a vast variation in the cost; labour, pipework, and fittings are dependent upon site-specific issues.

The most important issue is the location of the solar collectors and the hot water storage and the degree of complication in running the pipe-runs from the collectors to the hot water storage and the ease of establishing safe working access on the roof area where the collectors are to be mounted.
