Acorn Renewables Ltd are an accredited installer of NuTech Renewables Ltd patented and award winning solar thermal systems. NuTech patented Solar Heating And Ventilation systems are ideal heating systems for both new and existing homes across Ireland and Northern Ireland. Solar energy is a free resource that can be collected via solar panel collectors on the roof of a building and used to provide both domestic hot water heating, and solar assisted air heating and ventilation. It can also be used to heat and ventilate Solar passive houses.
Solar Hot Water: The award winning Solar Enhanced Heating and hot water system (SEH)) allows the solar energy collected from the solar panel to be sent to a coil at the bottom of the solar hot water tank. This heats the water in the tank, and provides the hot water for the house.
Solar Assisted Air Heating. The solar hot water tank can act as a heat store for the solar energy collected. When requested (via the ires cotnroller) this stored solar energy is taken from the solar tank to a fan coil radiator. Which uses the heat to warm the air in the house . This reduces the energy required for home heating. In summer (or when no heating is required) the Ires controller can send the solar energy to the solar hot water tank only.
Unique Patented Technology. The patented Solar Enhanced Heating and hot water system (SEH)is unique due to its capture of the low levels of solar radiation in Ireland during winter. Normally the solar energy collected would be too weak to heat water in a solar tank. So the solar energy would not be collected or used in a normal solar hot water heating system. During winter months the Intelligent Renewable Energy System (Ires) uses this low grade solar energy (around 30C). It sends the solar energy to the ventilation unit, providing warmed air at 28C to the house. This increases the amount of “free solar energy” and reduces the amount of energy required from the boiler, helping to reduce home heating bills.
Solar Enhanced Ventilation: Designed and patented by NuTech Renewables, the award winning solar enhanced ventilation system aims to bring big energy and cost savings to the home-owner by combining solar and ventilation technologies. Solar Enhanced Ventilation (SEV) is a renewable energy system that delivers solar energy by way of a positive input ventilation (PIV) system, while also delivering solar hot water
NuTech Solar Passive House. Designed by NuTech Renewables Ltd to make use of the patented Solar enhanced ventilation system and solar passive design. Solar energy is also used to ventilate and heat your home, all year round. Clients can build a home to a passive house standard without the high costs associated with standard passive house
