Soltropy have invented, developed and patented a unique solar thermal hot water heating system. Unlike other systems it’s designed to freeze and overheat without damage. It doesn’t need antifreeze reducing installation cost and maintenance is practically zero. More importantly not using antifreeze as the heat transfer fluid means systems can be larger to maximise energy collection in the cooler months and be allowed to overheat in summer.

Anne and Bryan from Moray, in the North of Scotland, love Soltropy’s system. It was installed as part of an Innovate UK, Soltropy/Heriot-Watt University joint project to test Soltropy’s new patented design.

Unlike other solar thermal panels, Soltropy’s award-winning design doesn’t need antifreeze and directly heats water. This means systems can be oversized to maximise energy collection in the cooler months and be allowed to overheat in summer.
“The system is working brilliantly; phase 2 will start shortly and we’re also looking to get it for the farmhouse” - William Birkett.
