The Principle is to harvest the abundant free energy contained in the natural atmosphere and use it to create hot water. The thermodynamic solar assisted heat pump system uses a small amount of electricity to generate a large amount of hot water.
The process uses an ozone safe refrigerant which has a boiling point of -26°C, as the medium to collect the solar heat energy. Two hot water panels are mounted externally, and the refrigerant flows through them in specialised channels maximising the exposure to air temperature, wind, rain or even snow – all of which transfer heat energy into the refrigerant. The refrigerant quickly heats up and expands, changing from a liquid to a ‘super-heated’ gas. Once back at the Bunsen Unit, this heated gas is compressed back to its original state of a liquid. Compressing the gas to a liquid gives of tremendous heat, and this is transferred via a hot water heat exchanger, to your hot water which circulates back into your hot water cylinder.
