New green technology can give hot water for £1 a week
New green high-technology can now give householders hot water for only £1 a week and central heating for £5 a week, says Midlands energy expert Ron Fox.
He says the latest British designed thermodynamic panel and box system has already proved popular in the UK and is selling worldwide.
“It is the green energy’s equivalent of the next Dyson vacuum cleaner and could revolutionise the industry,” said Ron, who runs Noreus in Stafford.
The aluminium panel, which can be fitted on a wall or a roof, provides hot water at 55 degrees centigrade 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, even if it is cloudy, raining, windy, frosty or snowing outside.
Ron said the system works as a fridge in reverse. The panel absorbs heat from the atmosphere; then the refrigerant fluid transforms it into a gas. It moves to the thermodynamic box which compresses it into hot gas before going though a heat exchange to warm the water in the nearby cylinder.
The gas then passes through a valve into the box where it reverts back into a fluid and returns to the outside panel to begin the whole operation again.
He said the environmental friendly system takes only four hours to install the panel, preferably on a south facing wall or roof, and the box which can fit in a standard immersion cupboard or loft. The big advantage to the home owner is that they don’t need to buy a new cylinder as it utilizes the existing one.
Also there is a five-year ‘no quibble’ guarantee, minimum maintenance and the system will never overheat or get frozen.
“But the main advantage is that it will reduce your hot water energy bills by up to 90 per cent,” said Ron. “Hot water costs will come down from around £400 a year to between £40 and £60 while central heating bills will be cut from about £800-£1,000 to between £240 and £300 a year.”
He added: “Although there is an initial outlay for the system it should pay for itself within ten years and after that the hot water will be free.”
However, he reminded residents that to make the system work efficiently they needed to retain the heat in the house and not let it escape through the roof.
Ron suggested spray foaming the loft with the Icynene Insulation System, which is an environmentally friendly and non toxic investment which reduces heating bills by up to 50 per cent.
“If you don’t have insulation all you are doing is wasting energy and letting the birds enjoy the heat you are producing, as they know the warmest places to perch on your roof,” he concluded.
