The indicative cost includes the following and is subject to a site-specific quotation:
- Solar collectors
- 250 ltr cylinder
- Pumping station
- All ancillary components including glycol
- Full installation and commissioning
- 10 year Guarantee on parts and labour
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 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.
Servicing & Maintenance
Solar thermal heating systems are low maintenance systems and require an annual or bi-annual planned servicing.
If you want peace of mind knowing that your system is working perfectly and saving you as much money as possible then call Impact for an Annual Service.Servicing & Maintenance
Funding for Solar Thermal Systems
Solar Thermal is eligible for the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI).
The RHI is very similar to the FIT (Feed in Tariff) scheme for renewable electricity; however the RHI only applies to technologies that generate renewable heating.Funding for Solar Thermal
