SOLAR PANELS K2 PLUS
An investment that will provide heat for many years
As soon as you start to feel the warmth of the sun in the spring and until late in the autumn, the solar panels can efficiently heat your hot water and your house. The solar panels also supply additional energy in the winter. During the summer half of the year, the solar panels are able to meet all of your house’s heating and hot water needs. Your living costs are really low and you are protecting the environment.
High quality saves money
Solar panels are always profitable but it takes a few years to recoup your investment. So it is important for the solar panels to be of the very best quality. Värmebaronen’s Swedish-made solar heating systems have a very long service life, so they save a lot of money. A wide range of accessories makes it possible to connect K2 solar panels to nearly all types of boiler and heat pump.
Many areas of application
You can use solar heating in many different ways. The most common is to let the solar panels produce hot water during the summer half of the year. You also get heat in addition to that provided by the primary heat source, which may be wood, pellets or a heat pump, for example. Many people use solar panels to heat their swimming pool cheaply and easily.
Combine with wood fired, pellets or heat pump
Solar panels are not able to heat a house in the winter, but they are an excellent addition to other heat sources. In the winter, when it is coldest, you use pellets/wood/heat pump for heating. For the rest of the year (April, May, June, July, August and September), the solar panels take over the heating and hot water. In this way, each type of energy is used when it is most efficient. Solar panels are also excellent with a heat pump. The heating costs less and the pump lasts longer. If you have geothermal heating, the solar panels can also heat the borehole.

Quick facts about solar panels and installation options:
Solar panels can produce hot water and provide heating for your house. Well-dimensioned solar panels can normally meet all your hot water needs from April to September. For the rest of the year, they provide additional energy for the house’s primary heating system. Up to 75% of all hot water consumption over a year can be produced by solar panels.
It is important for solar panels to be dimensioned according to energy needs. The energy needed in the summer is always the factor that determines the size of the system. It is usually enough to have one K2 panel per person, but it can vary between different households. For many years Värmebaronen has trained installers that can help you determine the correct dimensions.
It is best to have a well-insulated stratification tank with a volume of 50-200 litres of water per square metre of solar panel. Water is also heated in the tank. The accumulator tank must be fitted with a solar coil or a heat exchanger such as Solomax VX.
