The Benefits of Thermomax

Solar Energy for a Brighter Future

Solar energy is free, clean and safe. It is environmentally friendly and produces no waste or pollution. Using solar energy enables you to reduce your carbon footprint as well as your energy bills. Grants are available through many Government Schemes (see links section).
The Sun radiates enormous amounts of energy to the earth. As an example, the UK and Ireland receive on average per year, as much as 60% of that received on the equator. This radiation is similar to the output of 1,000 power stations.

Solar thermal technology transforms direct and diffuse solar radiation into useful heat using a solar collector, which should face as closely as possible to the south at an angle perpendicular to the sun.

Each Thermomax collector consists of a highly insulated manifold and a row of tubes. The vacuum inside each tube provides perfect insulation, protecting 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.
