Thermodynamic solar panels today.
Thermodynamic solar panels.
Thermodynamic solar panels are hybrid air source heat-pumps that enhance central heating capabilities. This considerably reduces the use of traditional fuels.
In a nutshell.
Thermodynamic solar panel installations are the most recent breakthrough in alternative technology.
Whether it's raining, windy, night or day, this can provide heat using heat pump technology.
The breakthrough comes from being able to use indirect atmospheric heating as well as direct heat from the sun via its unique solar panels.
The science bit.
The thermodynamic panel contains refrigerant that has a boiling temperature of 25 Degrees Celsius alongside heat-generated via compression through the heat pump.
Anodized aluminium panels.
Size: 2000mm x 800mm x 20mm.
Temperature: 40-80 Celcius (104-176 Fahrenheit).
Domestic, commercial & swimming pool sizing options.
We recommend installing PV solar panels working alongside a heating converter to heat water.PV & water heating
"This breakthrough comes from using indirect atmospheric heat alongside heat from direct sunshine."
A different perspective
If you want to see for yourself, how a heat pump works, then just put your finger over the hole of a cycle tyre pump. Make your finger create a seal and push down the plunger. Voila!
The metallic screw thread on the cycle pump will feel hot.
Heat pumps indirectly use solar energy via atmospheric heat, and thermodynamic solar panels harness additional solar power directly from sunshine.
The black absorption solar panels enhance the effects of the compression process, and thus, a hybrid was born.
Do I need planning permission?
No planning permission required, in most domestic cases.
Do thermodynamics work in the UK climate?
Because the system doesn't need direct sunlight, it works better than more traditional methods. Thermodynamic solar panels now developed for night and day use in the UK.
How does this work?
How much will a system cost?
The cost of a system depends on several factors but usually based on tank sizes, heat for central heating or hot water only.We only recommend PV
Can I install thermodynamics myself?
In most cases, No. However, if accredited with a Part P electrical qualification, then it may be possible to install in a DIY capacity.
An accredited MCS installer must commission all installations.
What water temperatures can I expect?
The operating temperature is 55° Celcius, which is suitable for all washing and bathing needs. However, an anti-legionella system activates to raise the temperature to 70° Celsius.
Why update my hot water tank?
Older 'copper' hot water tanks run exceptionally inefficiently, especially after many years of use. Limescale will reduce performance even further.
When installing a solar heating system, it's essential to establish a modern more efficient tank to get the most out of your system.
How is central heating possible?
Yes, if you decide to install a system set-up for central heating with the correct amount of panels. A full conversion from your old system including many thermodynamic solar panels is required.
It'll be working side-by-side with your conventional boiler still with a secondary coil in an updated hot water tank.
How long will it take to install?
Only a few hours in most cases.
How long do solar heating panels last?
A system will easily last twenty-five years.
Thermodynamics or traditional solar panels?
The wonder of this type of thermodynamic panels is you don't need a southerly facing roof space. These unobtrusive panels can also be wall mounted, thus allowing many homes to adopt that aren't suitable for traditional type solar panels.
