A SOLARFOCUS Therminator II Log Wood Boiler has been installed at an award winning home. Dave and Lesley Ellis were living in Hampshire and had just retired when they decided to make the bold move to relocate to Scotland. Not only that, they also decided to take on their very first project and build a house from scratch. This house would not only be beautiful but also sustainable, using some of the best eco-friendly techniques around.
After carrying out some research the Ellis' selected the SOLARFOCUS Therminator II 40kW boiler. It was estimated that the property requires 26,762Wh for annual heating and hot water. If the property was to be running on oil the carbon output would be 1.6 tonnes per year by running on pellets this would mean a reduction of some 1.55 tonnes of carbon output. Considering they now live in a much larger house their fuel bills have been dramatically reduced and in fact have been halved. From March to October they do not use the heating and the boiler is hardly used as the solar thermal panels produce masses of hot water.
Dave and Lesley also had installed four SOLARFOCUS solar thermal panels. The SOLARFOCUS CPC panel is unique in its design as it is the only flat panel to have a concave mirror behind the collector tubes and operates in quasi-vacuum state due to the one way valve letting excess pressure out when the panels get hot, creating a vacuum in the panel.
