Renewable hot water systems offer environmentally friendly alternatives to traditional water heating equipment. You can choose from the Harnitek ThermoPOD: Thermodynamic Hot Water System or Harnitek’s Air Source Heat Pumps to generate sustainable and efficient hot water. In this article, we will explore the benefits and features of these innovative technologies.
Harnitek ThermoPOD Systems: Harnessing Atmospheric Energy The ThermoPOD Thermodynamic Hot Water system, provides a simple retrofit option for existing hot water cylinders. These systems consist of two external panels mounted outside to capture the abundant free energy present in the atmosphere. A refrigerant liquid with a boiling point of -26 degrees circulates through the panels, absorbing the unlimited free atmospheric energy and transforming from a liquid to a gas. This gas is then compressed back into a liquid, releasing heat in the process. The ThermoPOD controller transfers this heat to the domestic hot water, effectively heating your hot water cylinder.
Operating in a similar manner to a refrigerator in reverse, the ThermoPOD system utilises only the free energy available in the atmosphere. Consequently, the only running cost is for running robust rotary compressor in the ThermoPOD unit itself, which consumes just 500 watts during operation and primarily remains in standby mode. The system is fully automated, maintaining the water temperature at the desired level and automatically heating it back up if it drops by 5 degrees. By seamlessly integrating with existing hot water cylinders, the ThermoPOD system replaces the need for fossil fuel-based hot water systems.
Harnitek Heat Pumps: Efficiency Tailored to the UK Climate, Harnitek offers a range of highly efficient air-source heat pumps designed specifically for the UK climate.
