Think Renewables are one of the prime distributors of the Solamics Bunsen Air Solar Assisted Heat Pump.
The Bunsen Air unit has benefited from over 12 years of data specific to the research and development of Thermodynamic systems. The Bunsen Air can be simply retrofit to any existing hot water cylinder, or be installed with a new one, turning the hot water cylinder into a solar system which can generate 100% of a households hot water requirements day and night.
The Bunsen Air is a low energy system, using only the required electricity to run a small pump and a compressor, and accordingly is extremely cheap to run, as all the energy from the atmosphere is free! Specifically developed for the U.K. climate this technology is not dependent on direct sunlight, unlike most types of solar hot water heating. Instead energy is transferred from even the coldest weather, and works day and night – the perfect solution for the U.K. climate.
Think Renewables has been a distributor of Solar Assisted Heat Pumps or also known as Thermodynamics for the past 2 years. We have supplied various companies with well know solar assisted heat pump/Thermodynamics systems all over the UK and Ireland.
When Think Renewables heard there was a new system on the market "The Bunsen Air" manufactured by Solamics Ltd we just had to have a look. We supplied three installation companies in three very different parts of the UK to trail the Bunsen Air product. The feedback was phenomenal.
All three companies claimed that the Bunsen Air was more efficient than any other product they had installed!. One company went on to say that the dual solar panel collectors "One in - Two Out" flow pipes made the overall system 35% more efficient than anything else they had encountered. All three companies also commented on how quiet the system was and how all the internal components were of the highest standard.
After such reviews, Think Renewables has now made the decision to only distribute the Bunsen Air Solar Assisted Heat pump.
What are the Advantages Bunsen Air have over other products available on the UK market?
The design and development of the Bunsen Air Solar assisted heat pump has been driven by efficiency.
The superior reheat times of the Bunsen Air means it actually spends little time running each day, and most of the time in Stand By.
Key features mean the Bunsen Air generates more power using less electricity. So the unit runs for less time and uses less power when running.
Below are features we feel cannot be disputed:
ERP A Rated: The Bunsen Air has been independently tested for noise levels, performance and power, resulting in ERP A rating (Energy Related Product) – currently the highest rating available for these products. The excellent results in efficiency and noise levels give added endorsement to the performance of this renewable hot water system.:
Compressor: Rotary Power The Bunsen Air units have next-generation rotary compressors to generate fast and efficient heat recovery times. Under testing, the rotary compressors significantly outperformed the standard piston compressors. Although presumed to be a noisier option, the Bunsen Air units have exceptional noise levels of just 41db as shown as part of the ERP A grade testing.
More power means the heat recovery times are quicker, so the system is working less. With low electrical demands of just 444w rated power, the Bunsen Air is fast, economical and quiet. The rotary compressors deliver more power for less power usage, so they run for less time and cost less while they are running.
Quietly Efficient: The combination of rotary compressor and highly developed internal components means the Bunsen Air is an exceptionally quiet and efficient unit. Now ERP A rated, this unit has a noise level below 41db as recorded in official lab testing results, making the Bunsen Air extremely quietly efficient!
Electronic Valve technology: The electronic valve will track performance faster and over a greater range giving constantly increased heating efficiency. Standard Thermo-valves cannot do this.
Panel design: Our flow channels are superior (tested) and our dual exhaust gives increased efficiency which single panels cannot achieve.
Panel numbers: Our dual panel systems significantly outperform single panels always. The system runs much faster – runs for less time and costs less to heat water.
Controller Economy function: The Bunsen Air can set different target temperatures for different times – so the unit simply runs less, More efficient.
Controller time zones: The Bunsen Air can isolate when the unit does or does not need to run. Easier to live with if needed.
