How Thermodynamic Solar Panels Work
How does it work:
The functionality of traditional solar panels are limited in Ireland due to the limited amount of sunshine we get. However the Energie by LVP thermodynamic solar panel system overcomes this limitation by sourcing heat through solar heat, rainwater and wind convection. Through these means water temperature in the storage tank is raised in a highly efficient and cost effective manner, even when it’s raining and even during the night.
The Working Principle:
Our systems are based on the laws of thermodynamics whereby they take advantage of the physical properties of a gas.
Imagine a fridge, which consists of a cold part, a hot part and a small compressor. The cold part is the panel
Inside our black panel, there is an environmentally friendly refrigerant (R134A) which has a boiling temperature of -25°C. The panel absorbs the heat from the environment and raises the temperature of the refrigerant.
The refrigerant is then compressed by the compressor which raises the temperature significantly.
Next the refrigerant is circulated through the heat exchanger coil in your water tank which transfers the heat to the water in the tank enabling you to have hot water at the turn of a tap.
With the ONLY power consumption of this system being the small compressor motor (equivalent to that of a domestic fridge) the system can save you up to 80% on your water heating costs.
