Any solar system that creates hot water is suitable for hydronic floor heating being either flat panels or evacuated tubes. Comfort Heat can source and install solar hot water panels, if required.
The heat output of solar panels is unregulated so requires a suitably sized storage tank. Heat output is solely dependent on solar radiation.
Solar hydronic floor heating requires a storage tank, expansion tank, mixing pump station with a solar by-pass and manifold.
Solar panels are installed on your roof and hot water is pumped into the storage tank. Your heated floor area will define the required storage tank size and number of solar panels. The minimum size tank required is 400L+ and minimum number of solar panel is two.
Solar hydronic floor heating requires a booster, either gas, heat pump or electric. This will guarantee that on days with low solar radiation, your floor heating will remain warm.
These specifications are based on a stand alone hydronic floor heating system. If you are interested in a mixed system that combines domestic hot water or pool heating, please contact our office for more details.
