Thermodynamics offers a revolutionary, environmentally friendly, way to heat your home’s hot water. As seen on TV - Grand Designs
Roughly the size of a door, a Thermodynamics panel looks very similar to a solar panel, however you only need a single panel, to effectively meet all your hot water needs. Although solar and Thermodynamic panels look similar, that is where the similarities end.
- A Thermodynamic panel could generate hot water 365 days a year, 24 hours a day depending on your home’s usage requirements.
- Generates hot water regardless of the weather, and will even work at night.
- They can be mounted on any outside surface – roof or wall!
- The panels don’t need to face any particular direction as they will work from ambient temperature, not light.
Heating Vs Hot Water Myth
When offered a solution to reduce their hot water cost, most people assume this is a drop in the ocean compared to their central heating costs. However, this is far from the case.
Keeping your hot water tank heated all year round uses far more energy and money than people think. A hot water cylinder contains substantially more water than a heating system and is normally heated up at least once a day to enable hot water to be available on demand all year round – unlike central heating which is typically on during cold spells.
- Did you know that an average house uses 55 litres of water to run their central heating, but heating a hot water tank using 200 litres?
How do they work?
Essentially it’s a fridge in reverse! OK, so we’re over simplifying here, but that is the basic principle.
The panels contain an environmentally friendly, very cold fluid which draws heat from
the environment as it circulates. The system is then able to extract that heat from the fluid and transfer it to your water using a heat exchanger. We are always very happy to explain more about this revolutionary technology to anyone who is interested, so if you’d like to find out more about Thermodynamics and how it works please do get in touch.
Thermodynamics can produce all of your hot water needs which will drastically reduce your hot water bill whilst providing you with hot water – even if the Thermodynamic panel is covered in snow!
Thermodynamics and Solar Panels?
Well now you are really speaking our language. In an ideal world/cost efficient, energy savvy home, you could use the energy generated by your Photovoltaic solar panels to power your Thermodynamics system and cut out the energy suppliers altogether, not to mention get paid by the government, via the Feed-in-Tariff, for producing renewable energy!
