Solar thermal panels can be installed on and in almost any home. Roof space is the first area you will need to consider, and secondly does your home get plenty of sun during daylight hours. A south facing home is ideal, but east and west will work just as well. The pitch angle of your roof also needs to be considered with an ideal installation of between 30 and 45 degrees, though an angle of between 10 and 60 can be used too.
Is the roof free from chimneys, air vents, windows and skylights as there needs to be a minimum clear roof area for installation of around 3-4m². Also it is important that there are no trees or bushes that will act as shade because this will affect how your solar thermal panels perform. Inside the home you will need to make sure there is space for a new hot water cylinder to replace your current one.
