Thermodynamic panels use the latest technology and apply cutting edge modern science and materials.
They are a relatively new innovation to enter the renewable energy market, but are like nothing we have ever experienced before.
Thermodynamic panels work in a very similar way to solar panels, except they have some added advantages. They are able to offer you hot water and heating twenty four hours a day, seven days a week, even when the temperatures are in the minus outside. This is great news if you live in the UK or other countries that are not known for having the warmest of climate. By generating your own heat energy through the use of thermodynamic panels, you will notice that you can save a huge amount of money on your homes bills.
Thermodynamic panels are able to heat your hot water, provide heating for your home, and if you have, even heat your swimming pool. Thermodynamic panels work by gathering heat from the atmosphere, and converting it into heat energy for your hot water and central heating systems. They can generate heat during the day or even night in sunshine, rain and wind, even snow. These thermodynamic panels will produce hot water and heat whenever you need it at all times of the day and night, the whole year round.
Thermodynamic panels are a new way of providing your home with hot water and heating. This innovative new technology has revolutionised the way you can reduce your carbon footprint, become self-sufficient and reduce your energy bills. One of the great things about thermodynamic panels is that they do not require sunlight they work by collecting heat from the atmosphere and converting this into energy. This process then results in water for your home that is heated to around 55 degrees all year round, day and night. From cold, it is predicted that your water tank can be heated up in around 4-5 hours, but will take less if the water is already warm.
You may think that they sound very similar to solar PV or thermal panels, but there are many large differences. Firstly, they have the ability to produce hot water 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Unlike solar panels which are only able to work when they are receiving enough direct sunlight.
If you found that solar panels were not suitable for your home, thermodynamics may be something for you to think about. Solar panels may not be suitable to be fitted onto many properties due the direction in which there roofs face, or shortage of available space on the roof.
Thermodynamic can provide 100% of your homes hot water whereas thermal solar panels can only produce 70%, this is possibly why more people are now considering thermodynamics over solar. Another great asset associated with this new technology is the size of the panels, as they are smaller than most PV panels, and they do not necessarily have to be mounted on a roof, they can even be fixed to wall. This is great news if you were put off solar panels due to the fact that you didn’t like how they looked. This is also a huge benefit to customers who have already had PV solar panels installed, and have little or no roof space available. Lastly the panels can work in temperatures as low as -15 degrees providing you with hot water all year round.
The only small downside is a cost to the householder for a small amount of electricity to power the compressor and run the immersion heater once a week.for five hours, to bring the water up to 61°C (at 60°C any legionella bacteria is killed within 32 minutes*).
But this could then be covered if you already have or thinking about install PV panels.
Although this article on Thermodynamic Panels is not really in the Solar Energy category I do think it is valuable information, in the alternative and renewable energy field, for people who are looking towards reducing energy costs and lowering their carbon footprint.
