Solar Thermal


IBD is a Daikin UK Specialist Renewable Distributor, providing its full range of solar thermal solutions and application expertise to homeowners, self-builders, specifiers and installers. The company also offers its Total MCS (Microgeneration Certification Scheme) and Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) services to plumbers merchants’ and their customers as well as non-MCS accredited installers and regional housebuilders to take full advantage of solar thermal opportunities.

Energy costs can be reduced by taking advantage of the sun’s renewable energy. Daikin solar panels are easy to install and produce up to 70% of the energy that hot water heat pumps and boilers need. Equally available for all building types, Daikin solar hot water systems accommodate small and large homes. There is a choice of a pressureless or pressurized hot water system.

The pressureless ECH2O thermal store is ideal for new homes. It offers higher energy performance than pressurised systems and requires a direct vertical connection from the tank to the solar collectors.

The pressurized ECH2O thermal store is ideal for renovations. It offers the possibility of using curved piping to connect the tank to the solar collectors. It is filled with water and anti-freeze to prevent frozen pipes and is pressurised and sealed for safety.
