The smart solar storage heater that allows owners with solar rooftop panels to reduce heating costs using free energy from the sun. When there’s not enough solar production, it uses cheaper off-peak power to charge and provide heating.
Solar Manager Technology
Solar Manager technology is capable of detecting any surplus rooftop solar energy during daylight hours that may not be fully used in the home. This electric energy can be redirected to the thermal storage unit to heat rooms even when solar energy production has stopped.
This technology can also manage the output of several storage heaters and distribute the energy available according to the established heating needs. The user can give priority to each appliance, ensuring the efficient distribution of available power to maximise indoor comfort at the lowest cost.
Utilisation of photovoltaic surplus
Ecombi SOLAR is the first storage heater on the market that is capable of utilising a household’s photovoltaic production surplus, converting the solar energy into stored heat and delivering it gradually to the room, providing the household with free heating.
Exclusive smart Solar storage heater, efficiency and comfort with a clean and sustainable heating. Designed to suit any household, Ecombi SOLAR can be configured to use the energy from rooftop solar panels, off-peak electricity tariff or a combination of both.
Option 1 – Use Ecombi SOLAR as your main heating system
Even with an abundance of sunshine, we have cold winters and heating costs are the highest household energy expense.
Ecombi SOLAR can be easily set in a combined operating mode, so the storage heater will utilise all the solar energy surplus produced and, if necessary, complete the appliance charge using the most economic off-peak tariffs to provide heating throughout the day when required.
This mode ensures the use of all the solar energy available and completes the storage heater charge to obtain maximum output and constant comfort
Option 2– Use Ecombi SOLAR with your existing heating system to significantly reduce operating costs and boost comfort levels.
Do you have an existing heating system but want to dramatically reduce operating running costs?
Ecombi SOLAR can be programmed to only consume free energy, using surplus solar power that would otherwise be fed to the grid. Once converted into stored heat, it’s delivered to the room through the smart storage heater, automatically adjusting for maximum comfort every day.
This operating mode is ideal for reducing the running costs of existing heating systems such as heat pumps, wood fires or gas heaters.
Integral management via wifi
The integral management of heating and the distribution and use of the solar production, as well as the control of the Ecombi SOLAR storage heaters, is possible through the G Control System, the free Wifi Control app.
