Solar Enhanced Heating Installation for Housing Developments
The patented Solar Enhanced Heating and hot water system (SEH) heats hot water and rooms in a home. Solar hot water panels are placed onto the roof of the home, and a solar hot water storage tank is installed. More solar panels are installed on the roof than a normal solar hot water heating system. This is so you can collect as much solar energy as possible. The solar energy collected is used to heat hot water and rooms in a home.
How it works.
Solar Hot Water. Solar energy comes from the solar panels on the roof. It is then sent to a coil at the bottom of the solar hot water tank. This heats the water in the tank, and provides the hot water for the house.
Solar Assisted Heating. The solar hot water tank will act as a heat store for the solar energy collected. When requested (via the IRES controller) this stored solar energy is taken from the solar tank to a fan coil radiator. This uses the heat to warm the air in the house . This reduces the energy required for home heating. In summer , when no heat is wanted you can divert the energy away from the radiator. The solar energy will go only to the solar hot water tank .
Unique Patented Technology.
In Ireland during winter months there is low levels of solar radiation. As a result in most cases the solar energy collected would be to weak to heat water in a solar tank. So a normal solar hot water heating system would not work in dull weather.
In winter the SEH solar panels collect this low grade solar energy. Then the low grade solar energy is sent to a fan coil radiator. Thus the radiator sends this energy out as heat. So this helps to warm the air in the home. As a result it takes less energy to heat your home. This saves you money and helps to reduce your heating bill.
