Can an ISL solar system be used to provide space heating for the home?

Answer

Whilst not as cost-effective as heating domestic hot water, space heating can be assisted by the use of a solar system, particularly in conjunction with a low temperature under floor heating system. Of course a much larger area of panels are required and there is still a requirement for a back-up heating system. This works best on very well insulated new build houses.
