HONE uses a Nanotechnology Heat Engine and as such the overall efficiency is much higher than legacy fuel-less technology. Old technologies such as Solar PV & Solar Thermal panels date from the 1800's and need sunshine for any visible level of performance.
HONE is the most powerful "fuel-less" renewable platform in the world.
(COP) - coefficient of performance definition:
Ratio of work or useful output to the amount of work or energy input, used generally as a measure of the energy-efficiency of air conditioners, space heaters and other cooling and heating devices. COP equals heat delivered (output) in Kilowatt hours (kWHrs) divided by the heat equivalent of the electric (or other) energy input. The higher the COP, the higher the efficiency of the equipment.
See below for the comparison of a Heat Pump & Solar Thermal with HONE. Note that HONE's performance is higher than Heat Pumps & Solar Thermal combined !
(Don't forget that Heat Pumps are on the market since 1863 !!! and are limited by the physics of the carnot cycle plus the fact that their source temperature from the ground or air can never increase)
Graph 1 is a measurement of direct energy production. This is is only the output COP performance of a HONE system. In addition you also get a large energy efficiency saving as your boiler and pumps are off several months of the year and this means you save lots of additional fuel by NOT having to heat up your boiler and pipework. This is the full savings/performance you will see in your home and Graph 2 is based on the EU Study home.
note: Heat Pump & Solar Thermal data from SEAI & DBEIS.
Proof is the only way to highlight the superb performance of the Generation 5 HONE FREE Energy systems. We don't make claims, they prove nothing. Below are LIVE screen shots of a customers system taken on 5th April 2016. The 1st screen shot was taken at 9:06am and shows the Daylight powered Heat Engine is already at 63C (hotter than an oil/gas boiler) with Hot Water on demand temperature at 54.1C and the Heating Storage temperature at 53.1C, all being fueled by daylight and it is still only 9am in the morning with a full day of free energy production ahead.
The second screen shot below is at 9:50am, same system in the West of Ireland and the Heat Engine is now at 70.2C with Hot Water on demand temperature at 56.6C and the Heating Storage temperature at 56.9C. This home is also producing all its electricity from the HONE system and you can see a video below of the electricity meter stopped.
The third screen shot below is at 1:21pm, same system in the West of Ireland and the Heat Engine is now at 81.8C with Hot Water on demand temperature at 62C and the Heating Storage temperature at 62.4C. This home is also producing electricity from the HONE system and this home is someone's real home today using energy and hot water as one normally does.
The home movie below of one of our systems taken in March gives you a visual idea of how powerful HONE actually is.
This is what we call PROOF, everyday in real-time with every project.
Note: Ireland is a base reference country for data as it has some of the lowest Photonic activity in the OECD countries. Other locations will perform better.
ALL LIVE SCREENSHOTS BELOW OF CUSTOMERS ACTUAL SYSTEMS ON 5th April, 2016.
We post screenshots of actual customer systems on our Twitter feed so you can see what type of real-time performance HONE can deliver.
Imagine, it is raining heavily and you have your under floor heating running and then the sun comes out and starts shining in the windows of your nice new house, the temperature will climb rapidly and you won't be able to stop your heating system for 4 hours and all that energy will make your home very uncomfortable for several hours. By using radiators, you can turn your heat on instantly and turn it off instantly; thus using the correct amount of energy and keeping your home at the right temperature. This is worth considering especially if your building has lots of glazing.
Using radiators in a modern A3 or better means only a few slim radiators are needed, typically only 6 in a 2,000 sq ft home and not under any window so your walls are clear. The design considerations have all changed.
