Solar Heating

First Call Heating Ltd is conscious of the need to protect the environment and with the energy prices rising, we should look to harness the strength of the sun where we can.

It is important in the interests of society that we all make economical use of resources and environmental sustainability.

Worcester Greenskies Solar Panels harness the power in both direct and diffuse sunlight and convert the energy to heat for the production of hot water for the home.

The solar panels have been designed as a complement to existing heating systems which use a store of hot water in a cylinder. The existing cylinder is exchanged for a cylinder with two heat exchanger coils; one from the boiler in the property and a second from the solar panels.

The Worcester Greenskies  Solar Panels are an ideal partner to the new range of condensing Greenstar regular and system boilers, with different models available in both oil and gas, which require a separate cylinder for the storage of hot water. When used together a Greenstar boiler with solar system provides a highly efficient system to give heating and hot water comfort.

A typical well sized solar system should provide around 50% of the domestic hot water requirements of a home, representing a very worthwhile saving on hot water heating costs.

The remaining hot water requirement is provided by the boiler.

Please note, due to a lack of demand, we no longer install Solar thermal panels, however if you visit the Worcester Bosch website to find out more.


Solar Services and repairs

Just like your boiler it’s always best your solar thermal panels are checked to ensure you are getting the best out of your system.

We offer a Solar thermal system health check-up for £144 inc vat (plus the amount of fluid your system needed). We will check the system and fluid state, check and top up the expansion vessel, check the safety valves and check the circulations. Provided all is well, usually this is all that’s needed to keep the system working effectively.

Sometimes systems become clogged when the fluid breaks down and stops transferring heat into your hot water tank, We have the equipment to completely remove the old fluid, flush the system out and replenish with new fluid. This generally costs around £300-£350, but we would recommended a health check-up first to see if you need this.

Due to the panels being hot during the day we generally book these in for an AM appointment.

We also complete repairs for £120 inc vat per hour excluding parts.
