How much does a Solar Thermal system Cost?
Typical installation costs are illustrated below. The indicative cost includes the following and is subject to a site-specific quotation:
- Solar collectors
- 250 ltr cylinder
- Pumping station
- All ancillary components including glycol
- Full installation and commissioning
- 10 year Guarantee on parts and labour
2 to 3 Bed Properties: £2,500 to £3,500
3 to 4 Bed Properties: £3,000 to £4,000
4 to 5 Bed Properties: £3,500 to £5,000
VAT for the installation of solar thermal systems is charged at 5%.
Commercial installations can have a vast variation in the cost; labour, pipework, and fittings are dependent upon site-specific issues.
The most important issue is the location of the solar collectors and the hot water storage and the degree of complication in running the pipe-runs from the collectors to the hot water storage and the ease of establishing safe working access on the roof area where the collectors are to be mounted.
