An array of high performance evacuated solar tubes on the roof linked to a thermal store (hot water cylinder) inside the home can not only shrink your carbon footprint, but add value to your home and are included in government legislation (explained below) that rewards homeowners for using renewable energy.
Each AGA Rayburn solar 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.
AGA Rayburn solar collectors have been designed to supply up to 65% of your annual hot water needs and work from dawn until dusk throughout the year. They can provide heat even in cold, windy or humid conditions and thanks to their clever design they have rapid conductivity and transfer of energy into heat so are 30% more effective than flat plate collectors.
