Unlike heat pumps and boilers, HEATESE stores a large volume of heated water, so there is no extra cost in relation to pre-heating. heats its surfaces indirectly, instead of directly as boilers do.
HEATESE only uses 17kw of energy in all it’s Oil and Gas heating systems. HEATESE uses a lower fuel pressure and a smaller nozzle, producing a smaller flame than other systems. This means HEATESE uses a lot less fuel when it’s on compared to other heating systems.
In a 3/4 bedroom home, the burner in HEATESE has a running cycle of just 12 minutes in every 45 minutes cycle. A typical boiler has a running cycle of 22.5 minutes on in every 45 minutes cycle.
Heatese uses indirect heating. Gases are heated which in turn heat the internal surfaces of the system, with the heat transferring to water inside a large copper cylinder. It is more fuel efficient to heat these gases than water, and indirect heating permits the use of copper which is a better conductor.
Temperatures reach 324 degrees celsius inside the Heatese gas chamber. When these gases leave the system through its exhaust they have been reduced to 40. This is due to an aggressive energy recovery system that transfers the otherwise lost heat back into the system. By recycling this heat, your fuel is not being used to create more heat.
Unlike a boiler there is no daily pre-heating cost with Heatese. A boiler uses up to 40% more oil in its first hour of operation; and will lose its heat quickly once turned off, requiring a pre-heating period again. In contrast, if turned off for 24 hours, the Heatese system will cool by 5 degrees. Heatese stores its energy for when its required. It can be run for (i) a few hours per days, or (ii) continuously e.g. with underfloor heating.
