Solar Central Heating Assist

At AEA Energy Ltd we believe that you deserve the best central heating system!

Why work hard to heat your home when we have a free renewable resource, like the sun, that can take on some of the burden and relieve your fossil fuel spend?

We supply the SOLAR CENTRAL HEATING ASSIST system which essentially is married into your existing system, creating a system that relies on solar to heat your water and home but also can be boosted if needed by your fossil fuel system.

How does it work?

Our solar system is designed to work in Ireland’s changeable weather and makes the most of the daylight and heat available, giving you massive savings on your bills and massive comfort in your home.

Solar Central Heating at Work

The Solar Central Heating Assist heats huge volumes of water that then circulates throughout your home to heat the radiators and produce hot water for domestic use, such as washing and bathing. It reduces the need for oil, gas or solid fuel to generate heat, to the minimum.

For many customers this system provides comfort all year long, while being far more affordable.

An example:

We looked at data recorded through December 2016, in one home we recorded that the boiler had burned fuel for three hours per day on average. However, the Solar Central Heating Assist had allowed heat to be directed to the rooms for an average of 16 hours per day. Essentially the fossil fuel system was only running for less than a quarter of the time that heat was available each day and the solar provided the additional heat.

Benefits

  • Unparalleled levels of comfort

  • Monitored heat delivery available

  • Makes your home feel more fuel savvy

  • Makes your annual heating spend decrease dramatically and easier to manage with rising fuel costs!

Interesting solar central heating facts!

Our Solar Central Heating system is home-grown, and was designed here in Ireland, with the Irish market in mind.

It was built to be integrated with the needs of Irish homeowners in mind, it works with a diverse range of heating solutions in use, including solid fuel systems.

It can be added to systems that use underfloor heating as well as traditional radiator based systems.

If you add our heating controls to the system it will give you 24-hour remote access to your system and you can adjust the heating schedule to fit your lifestyle, from your mobile device.

The sun is free, so having this system would mean that you are harvesting free fuel!

We use a thermal store system which heats the water in the cylinder for the radiators and also sends hot water to the taps.

Thermal store works in two ways:

Primary Water:

This is stored in the cylinder and heated. When this is heated, the water is then able to be pumped from the thermal store around the radiators to provide space heating

Secondary Water:

This comes directly through the mains and passes through a specially designed heat exchanger which draws from the thermal store. The water passes through the thermostatic mixing valve which blends it to the correct temperature before it reaches the taps.
