Flat plate solar collectors harness the free energy provided by the sun to help you reduce your energy bills and lower your carbon footprint. The systems collect warmth from the sun and use it to heat up water, which is then stored in a highly insulated hot water cylinder.
These collectors provide hot water throughout the year, and when supplemented with other heating sources such as condensing boilers, they ensure you have access to all the heating and hot water you need. Their peak output occurs during the summer, but because they are so efficient, they produce hot water year-round even in cloudy conditions.
Viessmann solar collectors can save on average up to 60 per cent of the energy needed each year for domestic hot water (DHW) heating. This means that investments in this technology pay off in just a few years and can bring significant long-term financial benefits. Combined with a condensing boiler, this type of solar energy can help you to lower your total energy consumption by over a third.

One of the guiding principles here at Viessmann is that “nothing is ever that good that it cannot be improved". This philosophy has helped us to become a leader in our sector and means we are constantly aiming to set new standards.
This is evident in our product range, which is geared towards cutting the use of fossil fuels and gradually replacing them with renewable sources of energy. Our solar flat plate solar collectors are designed to be integrated seamlessly with our condensing boilers to achieve the best possible results. Our condensing boilers convert up to 98 per cent of fuel oil or gas used into heat. So, when these two technologies are combined, they can bring major savings in terms of your heating costs and they can reduce your usage of fossil fuels - which is obviously good news for the environment.
Our flat plate collectors can also be used in combination with a wood heating system or a heat pump.
If you use our solar collectors for both central heating backup and water heating, you stand to save as much as 35 per cent on your heating costs. At a time when fossil fuel prices continue to rise, this could play an important role in helping you to control your household spending. By choosing our technology, you can benefit from a more energy secure future.
We ensure maximum convenience and cost effectiveness by supplying you with all the technology you need from a single source.
For our complete solar thermal range, we provide matching system technology. This ensures all components of your system work in perfect harmony, giving you high operational reliability and outstanding efficiency.
As well as our flat plate collectors, we provide specially developed combi DHW cylinders and solar control units. We also offer Solar-Divicon pump modules that provide reliable hydraulics as well as thermal protection of solar thermal systems. Our product range includes oil and gas condensing boilers, heat pumps and wood boilers too.
This means we offer comprehensive energy solutions that can be tailored to meet your specific needs.
With a smartphone and Vitoconnect 100, operating our solar thermal systems couldn’t be easier. The Vitotrol app allows you to remotely control your heating system in conjunction with your solar collectors. The app is compatible with Android and iOS operating systems.
When you opt for flat-plate collectors from us, you can have total confidence in the quality and reliability of your new heating solution. With over 40 years' experience in designing and manufacturing solar thermal systems, we are experts in this field.
