Solar thermal is the process of using energy from the sun – solar energy – in order to produce thermal energy in the form of heat. Solar water heating systems use solar panels, called thermal collectors, fitted to your roof. As part of the solar thermal process, these then collect heat from the sun and use it to warm up water which is stored in a special hot water solar thermal cylinder. A boiler or immersion heater can be used as a back up to a solar water heating system in order to heat the water further in order to reach the temperature you want.
