About Thermal Store
A thermal store offers a method of storing renewable heat until it is required, and in renewable energy systems for the home, these are usually hot water accumulator tanks or insulated cylinders. Essentially, solar panels or other forms of renewable energy are used to heat the water. This is then stored until you turn on the hot tap or use the water in your heating system. Using a thermal store not only enables you to store the heat produced until it is required, but it also offers the benefit of being able to heat the water up.
Domestic renewable energy systems are becoming increasingly common, with more and more home owners turning to solar power especially. A solar powered system may be used to generate electricity for the whole home, or a simpler system can be used to warm or heat water for use throughout the property.
to allow the hot water which as been produced to be stored, a thermal store is usually implemented into the domestic renewable energy system. Essentially, this works like a large hot water tank. The heated water is stored in the thermal store until required.
Different sizes of thermal store are available, as well as those with a variety of different functions and features. The warm water produced through solar heating can be heated further, ensuring that the water is hot enough for use while still offering reduced prices when compared to heating the water from scratch. It is important that you choose the type of thermal store that best suits your renewable energy system.
