Further Information & Advice
Vokèra solar flat plate collector systems are made up of the following main components: solar flat plate collector(s), pump station, control, twin coil water cylinder and traditional boiler. The solar system will provide a percentage of the domestic hot water requirement, the boiler then steps in to make up the differential.
We recommend that a solar flat plate collector system is connected system or open vent boiler and a twin coil cylinder. This allows the solar energy collected to be stored in a cylinder for later use and the boiler provides a top up in temperature, when the solar collector does not reach the desired temperature of 60°. Current regulations are unclear as to the usage of Solar thermal installations with combi boilers. We will update this page upon clarification of the guidelines.
