Hydro Genie Makes Heat Pump Radiators Hotter

To help win the climate crisis we need our heating to be from efficient heat pumps, and there is a technical problem in that the radiators are not as hot as fossil fuel heated radiators. This is where Hydro Genie comes in, it is retrofitted to existing heating pipes and is wired to the control circuit.

Circulating water is the most inefficient part of a heating system. It contains dissolved oxygen that, when heated, forms as bubbles on the heat exchanger in a boiler. This acts like bubble wrap, slowing down heat transfer and producing rusty black sludge that clogs the system. A Hydro Genie System removes the dissolved oxygen to stop this happening. Using applied physics, fluid dynamics and electronics, it cleans, enhances and regulates the heat transfer to the circulating water in a central heating system. This also leads to up to 20% more heat being generated across the radiators. The savings on your heating bills, mean that Hydro Genie Systems quickly pay for themselves. For example, if you install a Platinum system (typically used in larger properties), then you could recoup the cost of installation in just four years or less.

    This is an interesting solution to non fossil fuel pumps not heating as much as their fossil fuel pump counterparts.
