Solar Vacuum Panels – The Benefits

Solar thermal technology transforms direct and diffuse solar radiation into useful heat using a solar collector. Each collector consists of a highly insulated water manifold and a row of tubes. The vacuum inside each tube provides perfect insulation and therefore, protects the system from outside influences, such as cold and windy weather or high humidity. This vacuum insulation also ensures that the energy collected from the sun is very efficiently and effectively transferred into usable heat as there is minimal heat loss.

Kingspan solar tubes are acknowledged as the most efficient method of generating solar hot water whatever the weather – designed specifically for UK climates. In addition to domestic hot water, the superior performance of a vacuum tube collector can also provide central heating support for standard, specialized industrial hot water heating for high temperature applications and solar cooling.
