Solar Thermal

We have a wide range of solar thermal products available from our branches

This is a technology that transforms direct and diffuse solar radiation into useful heat using a solar collector. Solar thermal is highly effective for producing the hot water requirements for an average family home. The main requirement is a south east to south west facing allowing solar collectors to absorb sun rays.

At Nicholls we can offer two types of solar collectors; Flats panels or Evacuated. Flat panels are more robust than tubes, and can be more aesthetically pleasing than the evacuated tube. Evacuated tubes tend to be more efficient than the equivalent flat panel.

Evacuated tubes weigh less than the flat panels and can be easily installed. Nicholls can offer complete packages as well as accessories including hot water storage cylinders, pipe insulation and valves and flashings.
