The sun is the main energy source of the Earth, giving rise to most of the primary energies we use: fossil fuels, biomass, wind. All of these are consequences of the existence of the sun and its relative proximity. Direct use of it also enables us to obtain immediate benefits in the form of electricity or heat. This latter form of harnessing the sun is the most economical option for producing thermal energy.
While other systems need to consume energy during the process of producing heat, solar energy systems enable this to be carried out without the need to use other types of energy.
The ability of these systems to generate heat can reach levels of coverage, depending on location, of up to 70% of demand. The cost of a kilowatt hour generated offsets the investment (systems can pay for themselves within a few years with the savings made) and reduces maintenance costs. This cost is, without doubt, the lowest of any means of thermal generation during the long useful life of these reliable and sustainable systems.
Termicol offers an extensive range of solar thermal energy products for all types of solutions:
- Four ranges of flat-plate solar collectors, as well as large format and roof tile-integrated systems.
- All types of support structures.
- Prefabricated systems, such as thermosyphon, forcedcirculation and drain-back.
- Storage tanks of all sizes and systems.
- All types of accessories for solar thermal energy installations.
- Panels and accessories for swimming pool heating systems.
Solar energy is the most abundant source of energy available on our planet. Every 15 minutes, the surface of the Earth receives enough sunlight to meet the energy needs of the entire world for a whole year. Harnessing the power of the sun has proven to be a reliable method to produce energy and, today, entire countries obtain a significant portion of their energy from solar panels.
Photovoltaic solar energy is one of the most environmentally-friendly sources of energy; it is clean, does not emit harmful gases and is currently one of the main weapons in the fight against the serious environmental problems facing the planet.
This energy enables electricity to be produced through the incidence of solar radiation on solar modules. The direct current that photovoltaic panels provide can be converted into alternating current by an inverter, which enables it to be stored for autonomous consumption or transformed into conventional electricity for introduction into the grid.
There are many reasons to choose solar energy:
- It does not pollute and it is a clean way to generate electricity: renewable, economical and environmentally-friendly.
- It is an energy that is within everyone’s reach; it can generate electricity through installations on roofs, pergolas, or any available structure.
- Photovoltaic systems do not require sophisticated maintenance. Solar modules also have a proven useful life of more than 25 years.
- As the technology is modular, photovoltaic installations have the flexibility to adapt to various power requirements and can be expanded according to future needs.
- It helps to conserve resources. Our natural resources are scarce; oil, gas and uranium are becoming exhausted. Solar energy however is virtually unlimited and available in all corners of the world.
- 240 and 290 W modules.
- Self-consumption kits.
- Insulation kits.
- Pump kits.
The main reason is economic. With an a heat pump, it is cheaper to heat water than with a traditional system. You can reduce water heating costs by up to 75%, although the exact figure depends mainly on where you live. With energy prices always on the rise, it is no surprise that these systems have gained in popularity in recent years and will continue to do so in the future.
The second reason for choosing an heat pump is that it is environmentally-friendly. Thermal energy is present in the air that surrounds us, even at low temperatures, and aerothermic allows us to take advantage of this energy to heat water in a tank. To do so, the system uses a CFC-free gas, which contributes to the protection of the ozone layer. This energy from the outside air is used to heat hot water, producing far fewer CO2 emissions than any traditional system using fossil fuels.
The third reason is that the installation of the MONOBLOC system is very simple, as it is similar to an electric boiler of equal capacity, and one unit can meet 100% of domestic hot water needs. To achieve the best performance, it is advisable to take the air from a ventilated, unheated interior space, such as a ventilated garage, partially-covered verandah, attic or from the extraction of air from ventilation.
Another reason for choosing an heat pump to provide clean domestic hot water in an economical and easy-to-maintain manner is that it is not necessary to install a natural gas supply, gas flues or chimneys, thereby reducing household CO2 emissions.
The best and most advanced technology in monobloc DHW systems that allows water heating with the thermal energy contained in the air. Thanks to its stainless steel accumulator, it ensures long service life allowing you to enjoy an efficient and convenient system without flues and perfectly combinable with solar heating systems.
When choosing a new heating system for the winter, it is 100% recommended to use biomass and, in particular, pellet stoves.
Not only because of the energy savings it provides, but also because it is a totally ecological fuel which does not increase emissions of CO2 into the atmosphere.
Biomass is a fuel that comes directly from nature, and the pellets, which are the most used fuel, consist of small cylinders of sawdust with a diameter of 5-6 mm and length of 10-25 mm. Pressing is carried out at high pressure and they are usually sold in sacks or bags, making them very easy to transport. They have to be stored in a dry place to prevent them from swelling and losing their properties, as moisture and water makes combustion slower and produces more smoke.
The pellets have a high calorific value, produce very little waste in the form of ash as a result of combustion, are easy to store and offer the possibility of application in stoves and boilers, enabling them to function fully automatically. Their combustion also generates very low levels of CO2 emissions. They are a CO2-neutral fuel because their emissions are so small that they do not contribute to the greenhouse effect.
Energy savings obtained from pellets can be highly significant as they have a much lower price compared to other fuels such as diesel, propane, butane or electricity.
Pellet stoves with forced-air circulation are equipped with a fan that constantly moves the hot air that the household produces. In this way, the heat spreads quickly around the room. The electronic control unit enables the power and fan speed to be controlled depending on requirements.
Pellet stoves operate fully automatically with a programmable timer and thermostat, i.e. with automated on and off functions. And the size of the tank and system determines how often the stove needs to be filled with pellets. Its design lends the living room a feeling of comfort and a pleasant and cozy atmosphere.
Ventilated stoves of 6, 8 and 10 kW with electronic control system allowing pellet consumption optimization. Its easy assembly and starting up allows fast and safe installation, ensuring high levels of comfort at a very low cost.
