Thermal Battery for your home solar system
You can store up to 18kw of heat in a single Enviroheat Tank. All the stored heat energy will be ready for you to use at night, when your typical hot water consumption will increase.
The Enviroheat system is the perfect addition to your rooftop solar system. Whether you have an existing solar system on your home or you are considering it for the future, the Enviroheat is the perfect choice to add to your system to gain maximum benefit from the energy generated by the sun.
Our advanced control system is equiped with an automatic timer that allows you to maximise solar power generated during the daytime at night.
A second timer allows for an early morning boost to ensure you never run out of hot water.
How the Enviroheat Heat Pump Works
To understand the concept of heat pumps, imagine a refrigerator working in reverse. While a refrigerator removes heat from an enclosed box and expels that heat to the surrounding air, a Heat Pump takes the heat from surrounding air and transfers it to water in an enclosed tank.
Heat pump technology makes efficient use of the heat in the surrounding air, even at temperatures as low as -70C. In fact the Enviroheat system is so efficient that it can convert 1kW of electricity into over 4kW of heat.
A fan draws in air containing heat energy, across the evaporator
The evaporator turns the liquid refrigerant into gas
The compressor pressurises the refrigerant into hot gas
The hot gas inside the condenser coil heats the water inside the tank
The refrigerant reverts back to a liquid after expansion & continues back to the evaporator for the process to start again
