The United Kingdom is not best known for all year sunshine. In winter Britain receives on average seven hours of light every day with only three to four hours of sunshine. This limits slightly the operation of conventional solar thermal panels.
Thermodynamic – How?
Thermodynamic solar panels are very different from conventional panels and some would say are basically a fancy heat pump. The idea is based on the findings and theory of Nicholas Carnot, he was a French physicist in the 1840. He discovered thermodynamics and using what he discovered this technology and using modern science and materials, thermodynamic solar panels can now believe it or not heat your hot water, home, business or swimming pool.
The solar panel or panels gather and extract heat from the atmosphere and this happens in day or night, sunshine, rain, wind or snow. The thermodynamic solar panels will make hot water or create heat whenever you need it night or day the whole year round.
Thermodynamic solar panels are a major advancement in thermal solar technology for homes and business but they yet have to be classified for a tariff such as the renewable heat incentive (RHI). There will be more news on this as it becomes available, sign up to our news stories.
Thermodynamic solar panels as said work basically in conjuration with a small heat pump that works like a backwards refrigerator and the liquid inside the panels that helps the magic work in not water with antifreeze like a normal solar thermal system but a refrigerant called R134a.
- Heat water to 55°C 365 days a year
- Works in any weather day or night
- High thermal efficiency
- Strong panel but weighs only 8kg
- Minimal maintenance, Easy Installation
- Mounted vertically on walls or flat roofs
- Good applications for domestic and commercial
- Reduces carbon emissions
Save As Much As 80% Off Water Heating Bills
Thermodynamic solar panels are able to collect the heat of the Sun, even the wind and rain, 24 hours per day, 365 days per year. The innovative feature is the circulation of ecological fluid at a negative temperature, that enables collection of solar power and energy, which are then transferred into the water through a heat exchanger.
Thermodynamic solar systems use two types of ecological fluids that fall within European Standards: R 134-A and R 407-C. Notice they do not contain ammonia and are considered ecological. These are non-toxic, non-combustible, noncorrosive, chemically stable in situations of high pressure and high temperature.
Thermodynamic is a very low cost option with a high coefficient making it one of the most effective ways to heat your water and your home and of course, they are environmentally friendly. Thermodynamic solar system represents a major leap forward in the development of solar power harvesting.
Installation A Thermodynamic Solar System
Thermodynamic solar collectors are very easy to install and most residential fits take only a day. The panels are less than 2 meters long and 80 cm wide. Unlike conventional thermal panels, thermodynamic makes use of the sun, wind and rain and even work when it is frosty and snowing.
The collectors do not over heat in summer and they are fully resistant to corrosion, they are very light (8 kilos). They do not need any auxiliary energy source to defrost. They are not affected or damaged by hard water and they they require hardly any maintenance at all.
As soon as we get more data and MCS have passed these products and given them there categorization for the Renewable Heat Incentive we will be installing these products. If you would like to show your interest and get an idea of price please contact us.
