The money saving benefits of Thermodynamic Solar Heat Pumps
With all the talk of Ireland failing to reach its expected reduced carbon emission targets, it seems possible that the current carbon tax rate will increase.
For homeowners – whose primary home heating solution is gas – this means they’ll likely see further increases to their home heating energy bill.
Energy companies like Bord Gáis Energy, Electric Ireland and Energia are already charging their clients a carbon tax, which works out at around 0.42 cents -- including VAT -- on every kWh of gas used.
With carbon emissions again at the top of the Government’s agenda, this per kWh rate may be significantly increased.
With the threat of a tax increase hoovering in the air, now is the perfect time to consider greener energy alternatives. If you are thinking about solar, you should really be considering thermodynamic solar panels.
What are Thermodynamic Solar Panels?
Thermodynamic Solar Panels represent a significant breakthrough in solar energy technology. In contrast to the solar panels of old, thermodynamic solar panels can generate energy even at night time.
These modem panels draw solar heat directly from the surrounding atmosphere. This means that these panels work effectively even when sunlight is not available. As such, they are particularly useful in the Irish climate, where sunshine is certainly not guaranteed.
This energy is used to heat water in a solar assisted heat pump, which generates hot water for showers, baths and sinks.
Are thermodynamic solar panels a clean energy source?
Absolutely; thermodynamic solar panels gather solar energy and don’t produce any damaging greenhouse gases. Their innovative design means they can generate enough energy to fulfil the hot water needs of an entire household.
How do I maintain my Thermodynamic Solar panels?
Thermodynamic Solar panels require almost no maintenance. Dirt accumulation doesn’t undermine the performance of thermodynamic solar panels. The sturdy and robust build of thermodynamic solar panels is designed to withstand the onslaught of even the most extreme weather conditions.
Are there solar panel installation grants available?
Yes, the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI) provides Irish homeowners with enticing grants for fitting thermodynamic solar panels to their roofs. Our team of solar panel installation experts can discuss these grant options with you.
