A solar hot water system can be officially defined as:

‘Solar hot water is water that is heated by converting direct solar radiation energy into thermal energy and transferring that energy to raise the temperature of water.’ ~ World Plumbing Council Working Group 2008 ~

Solar hot water systems use solar energy to heat water, and they are usually composed of solar thermal collectors, a water storage tank, interconnecting pipes and a fluid system to move the heat from the collector to the tank.

However, unlike photovoltaics, solar hot water systems do not use solar energy to generate electricity, but instead they use solar energy to directly heat the water.

At McNutt Plumbing & Heating we specialise in Wolf solar thermal panels. Wolf GmbH's manufacturing base is the city of Hallertau Mainburg / Bavaria.  They are European leaders in manufacturing and supplying  innovative Heating, Ventilation and air Conditioning systems.

Geo Thermal Heat Pumps - McNutt Plumbing

NIBE GSHP systems are world renowned and this was recognised last year when the NIBE F1245 Ground Source Heat Pump came runner up in the, Product Innovation of the Year 2011, category at the National Heat Pump Awards in 2011. A geothermal heat pump heats or cools an indoor environment by extracting natural heat from the ground, rock or water or transferring heat to these regions..


Under Floor Heating Systems - McNutt Plumbing

An underfloor heating system is unique because it heats a room from the floor up, ensuring that much less heat is required compared to a conventional radiator-based system which only produces localised heat that normally concentrates around the ceiling. Furthermore underfloor heating systems are ideal for using in conjunction with other Renewable Heating Systems, especially geothermal heat pumps and solar thermal panels.
