The sun has heat to spare

We need hot water all year round. Installing a solar collector on the roof of a house or cottage will provide you with domestic hot water at no cost.

Savings: Use a solar collector to avoid continuous heating costs. Once the system has been installed, it only needs occasional servicing.

Remember this: A collector involves an initial investment, but after that you save on heating costs and the maintenance of other heating equipment. You may need planning permission to install a solar collector.

Reducing your carbon footprint: A solar collector reduces your carbon footprint by 7% per year. If a million Finns installed one it would save the equivalent of 66,000 carbon footprints. Emissions are lower because less electricity and heat has to be transmitted from power plants.
