Service and Repairs
We offer servicing and repairs of solar hot water systems. Very often, these systems are neglected, and fall into disrepair, often because the original installation company has ceased trading. Personally we love the technology, and thoroughly enjoy getting problem systems running properly.
If you have a solar hot water installation that isn’t performing as well as you expected, then you could be missing out on a lot of free hot water, and your system could need a solar thermal service or repair.
It is absolutely crucial that you hire a professional to fill and service your solar thermal system. If the system is not dosed with a Glycol mixture, the panels and external pipework could freeze, causing pipework leaks and potentially catastrophic panel failure.
Some so called solar thermal engineers fail to fill with Glycol and instead fill the system directly from the mains water supply. This is totally incorrect, and when the water freezes in cold weather, the panels will be catastrophically damaged.
We fill solar thermal systems with the correct concentration of Glycol, and we use a market leading Rothenberger Ro Solar machine (as pictured) to ensure full Glycol dosing and complete expelling of all air, to ensure your system neither freezes nor fails to circulate.
If you need your solar thermal system servicing or repairing in Brighton, Hove, Steyning and the wider Sussex area, then give us a call to book us in.
