I'm thinking about having solar thermal panels installed on my home, to try and save some money on hot water. Does anyone have some clear answers to the following questions... . Are evacuated tube or flat plate panels better - as I have read that there are two types? . How likely is it that this system can save me money in the long term?
(Not too many technical terms please I am an absolute beginner in this area)
There are now a range of solar hot water systems that could be deemed more efficient than solar thermal. I actually work for a company that supplies solar assisted heat pumps (I don't know if you've come across them yet)? Unlike solar thermal they work day and night in all weather! We are actually a Business to Business distributor, but feel free to take a look at our system website (solamics.co.uk) - if these were something you thought you could of interest, then feel free to give the team a call, and someone would be more than happy to advise you. We could also put you in touch with your local installer! .
