Mike,

Can you please fix your newsreader so we can tell what Jonathan wrote and what
your responses are? It all looks the same here.

It's customary to use ">" to quote the previous posters text.

? The panel doesn't put any weight on the loft, only on the roof!


Not for a solar water heating panel on the roof. Ours is on the front roof
(facing south) and we didn't need it. I haven't heard of anyone, anywhere in
this country, who has needed planning permission for such a panel.


Don't you have a boiler?


You can do your own. I'm reading this in uk.d-i-y. If you can't do it
yourself you should have deleted the group from the cross-posting.



The one we use was designed and tested in Scotland. We're in Yorkshire. It
works.


? You don't use hot water in warm weather?


It would. The water temperature is raised even if it's not warm enough for
use at the sink. That means that not as much energy is needed to raise the
temperature to a usable one.


And use more fossil fuel.

DOUBLED???


I can't believe that CAT said that but if they did they're wrong.


The day we installed ours the outside temperature was 4C. within a few hours
the water coming from the tap was 32C. That's usable but even if it isn't it
means that the gas or electricity doesn't have to heat the tankful to that
temperature before it goes higher. The water in the tank has never gone
below 29C in all that time.

We know because there's a display thermometer and we're still keen on
looking at it :-)

I'm not sure about that. I discovered, after we fitted ours, that a company
only a mile away has been making a similar system for at least ten years
before that.

It does. I know because we have one.

You can't know that it doesn't because you don't have one.

Greetings! Long time no read...

Have thought many times of you and yours - and would like to know if
your son has returned safe and sound...

Have you kept records of your panel performance?
