PV solar panels.

Technology that last longer than your mortgage.

PV solar panels, also known as photovoltaic panels operate even on cloudy days in the UK and in some cases heat up your hot water tank. These are the most popular form of sun-powered technologies today and will still be generating for their owners - three decades from now.

EV charging points.

PV-powered electric vehicle chargers.

EV chargers are bringing the power of the sun to the motor vehicle industry. This real game-changing technology can be combined with photovoltaic PV solar panels to bring free motoring miles to families across the UK. Our electric vehicle charging points can be installed with or without solar panels.

Evacuated solar tubes.

A super-efficient system for water heating.

Evacuated solar tubes are an alternative water heating system, developed especially for northern European countries. Vacuum heating tubes use the sun's radiation, to heat your tank or swimming pool and contrary to popular belief, actually work throughout all four seasons.

Thermodynamic solar panels.

Combining heat-pump and solar heating.

Thermodynamic solar panels are a hybrid technology that takes over from your boiler's job of heating your hot water and central heating. This considerably reduces the use of expensive fuels to heat your home. This system has the ability to work any time day and night.

Exploring the world of solar panels

"When I was researching the topic of solar panels in the UK, there were no helpful websites on this subject."

Fast forward ten years and my enthusiasm for this technology has grown exponentially alongside the global and national demand for them.

Creating Heat my Home has led me to meet many people within the solar industry, some good and some not so. Nonetheless, the wealth of knowledge I have gained, alongside the combined knowledge of our contributors can hopefully empower you to make a more intelligent assessment.

Knowledge from those who have already walked this path before.

What installing solar panels on your home really feels like.

"What installing solar panels on your home really feels like."

My own experience make investing solar panels as easy as possible. The questions I have asked and the answers I have heard are all here for your benefit.

If I could encapsulate the most important thing to consider when choosing a preferred technology and installer, it would be to do your homework on both because 'not all panels are the same' and the 'ethical standards of installers' vary greatly. Always get three quotes and compare data sheet's.

This is why I connect people with ethical installers via our 'get a quote' service.

Most importantly though, we hope this information can help give you the confidence to ask the right questions, get the right system and certainly at the right price.

Affordability of course is relative, but if you are lucky enough to be able to install a solar panel system, then this is certainly the best time to do so, as the incentives are still available and the technology costs are at an all-time low.

This just leaves the installation costs to get right and then you will be able to ride through the next three decades without fear of external factors that will undoubtedly affect the cost of powering and heating our homes.

However, the most unanticipated aspect that gets reported time and time again from new adopters, is the pride felt once those solar panels are firmly attached to the roof.

How to charge a car with PV solar panels

If you really want to impress and bring your solar panels to its full potential, then charge your next car with PV.

Being one step ahead of the crowd is how most people create and hold onto their money. Many people installed PV solar panels because it was a 'sure thing' and they were 'ahead of the crowd'.

Therefore the next logical step is to trade in your old gas guzzler for an EV (electric vehicle) charged for free with your PV solar panels.

Most car manufacturers have their own EV models nowadays, so once again 'opportunity strikes' to expand your ability to benefit from solar panels with 'free motoring mileage'.

How to heat a home with PV solar panels

In my earlier days as a solar pioneer, you needed two separate systems to produce electricity and hot water - not today.

Today, you can save thousands of pounds using a neat little bit of technology that only costs a few hundred to work alongside an existing PV system.

PV to hot water converters can be retrofitted or installed with a photovoltaic system and simply put, use your surplus electricity to power your immersion heater to heat your hot water in a hot water tank or thermal store set-up.

A thermal store installation will allow you to use your multiple renewable technologies for both hot water heating and space heating of your home. Evacuated tubes and traditional solar heating panels were traditionally used, but now photovoltaics are preferred by both installers and users.
