The ThermoPower Controller allows a range of advanced settings to be selected to maximise the efficiency and convenience of this renewable hot water system.
It’s designed to replace your existing hot water heating system, allowing you to turn off your existing boiler, and let ThermoPower take over.
There are a number of additional features which allow you to boost performance:
There are a few options to your hot water heating choices
You select a target temperature for your hot water, and each time the ThermoPower detects a drop in your cylinder temperature of 5 degrees, it will heat your hot water back to temperature.
Choose up to 3 different target temperatures for 3 periods of the day. So you can prioritise daytime heating to fully heat your cylinder, and then have lower for the evening, and another for night-time when you are not using the hot water.
ON OR OFF
The unit is extremely quiet, but not silent, so if needed you can select up to 2 periods of the day when the unit does or does not run. These periods work in conjunction with the above two options.
If you choose to have your immersion wired into the ThermoPod, then you can program some Boost functions:
You can set a lower Boost temperature and have it pre-set for a time of the day. If during this time your temperature drops below the boost temperature them both the ThermoPower and immersion will work to recover the temperature, once the lower Boost temperature is achieved, it will stop the immersion and just continue to heat using the ThermoPower.
If the immersion is connected it will use both the immersion and the ThermoPower to reach the 60 degrees temperature (if no immersion then the ThermoPower will run on its own).
This will use both the immersion and the Bunsen unit to recover heat to your target temperature.
The Controller allows you to either have the system on default settings, or to programme some preferences according to your requirements.
