FREE AIR Has the Power to Generate Continuous Hot Water – Day and Night!

Install JEM Energy’s green energy hot water panels - to generate continuous hot water, without need for constant sun exposure

What is a green energy hot water system?

Green energy is, in no complicated terms, a word that also implies ‘clean energy’ – basically, energy that has not been made by the burning of fossil fuels, which causes harmful pollution to the atmosphere.

Renewable or ‘green’ sources of energy production that we describe as ‘clean’, or ‘green’ energy, include solar, wind and biomass power– all of which can provide environmental benefits such as the reduction of greenhouse gasses, and therefore contribute to lessening air pollution which is having a distressing effect on our environment.

They are ‘green’ energy systems, because there are no or very little fossil fuels required to produce energy from them, and therefore… no, or very few polluting emissions which contribute to climate change.

How free air can heat your water

Some of the best known renewable energy sources include solar pv or solar thermal. We know that the sun is an excellent generator of renewable energy - but therein lies the problem… the sun cannot be relied upon all day and night, all year round (especially in the UK), as our exposure to it is of course – limited.

But what if we were to tell you, that there is a way for you to heat your water from a renewable energy source, that didn’t rely on solar generation alone?

Essentially a ‘sunless’ solar hot water system?...

Enter JEM Energy’s Thermodynamic Hot Water System…

Thermodynamic technology is probably the most ground breaking renewable energy source to have stepped onto the solar energy scene. Why? Because it is essentially powered by FREE air.

It is extremely versatile, and unlike solar technology and wind energy, which rely on one specific energy source, thermodynamic solar water heating systems can generate hot water whatever the weather conditions might be that day…


Rain, snow, below freezing temperatures, alongside wind and the sunshine, ALL play their part in the generation of hot water (which is even possible during the night)

Our state of the art water heating system, works by taking energy from the environment (whatever the weather), and using that energy to generate hot water. It does this with two externally mounted water heating panels which are connected to your hot water cylinder, and an internal heat pump unit which contains a rotary compressor – working together as part of a renewable water circuit.

Some key features that ensure our hot water system stands out from others are…

·       Rotary compressor technology

·       Specialist sound proofing - making JEM Energy’s renewable water heater the quietest on the market

·       Dual Exhaust technology

·       Dual Panel technology

·       Superior flow channel technology within the system’s thermodynamic hot water panels

·       ERP A Rated

·       HIES Approved

A full explanation of how the JEM Energy’s Thermodynamic | Eco friendly hot water heaters do this can be read here.

The manufacturers of our hot water system have created this water heater by taking the best possible research and analysis into heat pump technology, thermodynamic science and the particular aspects of a thermodynamic system that make them powerful pieces of water heating technology, turned them on their head, and created one system for thermodynamic solar hot water generation, that we believe to be the most powerful available, whilst remaining cost efficient to install and run and, (dare we say it) - easy on the eye!

Thermodynamic Water Heating Systems

Thermodynamic Water Heating Systems

How they work, safe water temperatures, and the true temperature of the water produced by them

What is a thermodynamic hot water system?

Thermodynamic water heating systems are designed to absorb energy from a range of climatic elements and do not require the sun to heat water. They do this through a circuit of three main parts…

The first is their external thermodynamic hot water panels, which take in energy from any atmospheric element including wind, snow, hail and rain. Secondly, these panels are linked via specialist refrigeration piping to the internal heat pump unit, and then thirdly, heat energy is transferred to the hot water cylinder, which all household hot water is then taken from.

A full description of how thermodynamic hot water systems work can be found here.

Do thermodynamic hot water systems generate water that is hot enough for domestic use?

According to the Recommended Code of Practice for Safe Water Temperatures, there has been evidence to indicate that the risk of scalding rapidly increases from temperatures of 45°C and above… For example, partial thickness burns will occur within 30 seconds at 55°C.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) recommends setting to no higher than 49 °C (120 °F), although is to my understanding that medical professionals do not recommend heating bath or shower water to over 43.4°C, as any hotter than this can be harmful to health.

Thermodynamic, and solar assisted heat pumps are ERP tested to be able to heat your water to 53°C, they are also capable of heating water to a maximum of 60°C once a week (the required temperature for legionella control).

The speed that thermodynamic hot water systems achieve this temperature

The Bunsen Air Thermodynamic Hot Water system is one such high quality system of its kind. Field trials, carried out by manufacturer Solamics, have demonstrated the remarkable speed that a hot water cylinder can be heated back up to temperature through the use of a thermodynamic system.

The result drawn from this test was exceptional…

1. To recover the cylinder temperature from 30 to 53 ℃, Bunsen unit took 2 hours and 1 minute in total.

2. The COP in outdoor temperature at 8 ℃, water temperature from 30℃ to 35℃, is 7.3.

The COP was measured up to 35℃ as this reflects the COP of a standard heat pump.

Will there be enough hot water to go around?

After the water heating process has taken place, there is enough hot water generated to accommodate the use of an average domestic household. As the heating process is continuous, a sustained supply of hot water is ensured. Should even more hot water be required, there is a ‘boost’ function on the system controller, allowing users to increase the target temperature!


How to get hold of one

JEM Energy are suppliers of the Bunsen Air, and have already carried out hundreds of successful installations across the UK.

Customers who have had their systems installed for as little as three months, are already reporting savings of as much as £60 a month, as well as acknowledging that their systems are heating water that is more than hot enough for domestic bathing and washing purposes, as well as reporting that their systems are supplying enough hot water to accommodate their entire household.
