Solar Hot Water

Solar Servicing

Service man solarRegular servicing of your solar hot water (solar thermal) system is essential to ensure its efficient operation. You should think of servicing your solar hot water system in the same way as servicing your boiler or car. If regular servicing is not carried out, it leads to expensive repairs. We offer full and interim servicing for all types of solar hot water systems, repairs and maintenance of all types of solar tubes and solar flat plate panels.

Unfortunately, many solar hot water systems in Ireland are not performing anywhere near their capability for a variety of reasons. Some don't work at all! Some reasons for ill-performance are:

  • Not installed correctly
  • System has gone into stagnation (overheated) during it’s lifetime
  • No heat dump installed (this is a necessary item for most systems)
  • Glycol (anti-freeze) has failed due to age
  • Glycol has failed due to stagnation
  • System pressure has dropped
  • Expansion vessel has failed
  • Expansion vessel has incorrect pressure
  • Flow rate is set incorrectly
  • Pump is on incorrect setting
  • Controller/temperature sensors are set up or fitted incorrectly (or sensors have become dislodged)
  • System was not professionally commissioned
