Magic Hot Water

A solar assisted heat pump manufactured in a UK Factory with ISO 9001 certification and is specifically tailored for Irish homes and the Irish climate, it is the first UK tested MCS approved thermodynamic hot water storage cylinder heating water up to 55oC. Over 30 years of engineering expertise went into making one of the most advanced water heating systems on the market.

How it works

The refrigerated liquid is circulated around by the aluminium panel. Energy is absorbed from ambient air, this carries the heat to the unit, the unit compresses the gas, increasing the temperature. The gas reverts back to a liquid, which flows back into the unit, allowing the process to repeat, the super-heated gas is used in a process that transfers heat to the water in the cylinder, this continues until water temp reaches 55o, once achieved the system goes into standby.
