A property which features a solar thermodynamic system will be featured on Grand Designs on 10 September.
The thermodynamic system was fitted on a property on the outskirts of Cornwall, built by a Californian architect. The system was provided by Chelmsford-based The Magic Thermodynamic Box company.
Commenting on the system being featured in the Channel 4 series, the company’s managing director Alistair Smit said: “The Little Magic Thermodynamic Box makes use of a Thermodynamic Panel which is similar to a solar panel. However, unlike solar it can be installed more flexibly – even on the outside wall of the home. The unique selling point of this product is that it works day and night every day of the year unlike solar thermal that only works when there is sun light. It was a simple installation which took just over a day and will save the user on energy for years to come”
Alex Basile, the company’s marketing director added: “The Magic Thermodynamic Box Company is the only company in the UK that manufacture thermodynamics, we have manufacturing this product for nearly two years now and are already supplying the product to 15 countries around the world. Working with the production team for the two days on set was a rewarding experience and we are all looking forward to seeing the product in the Grand Design magazine on 2 October as well as the TV show on 10 September.”
In 2012 Gemserv, the body responsible for the UK’s Microgeneration Certificate Scheme, ‘temporarily’ suspended the registration of new solar thermodynamic products on to the MCS installation database. Gemserv said the suspension would remain in force until installation requirements for solar thermodynamic solar products had been developed.
