The Xcel HEATBANK™ Thermal Store
Suitable for simultaneous connection to Wood Burners, Stoves and Biomass Boilers, Gas and Oil Boilers, Solar Panels, Heat Pumps, Vented and Sealed Heating Systems including Radiators and Underfloor Heating, as well as High Performance Showers and Multiple Bathrooms. Very high quality Stainless Steel Laser Welded Construction. Performance guaranteed.
The Xcel HEATBANK™ works with all types of heat source:
- Wood Burners
- Biomass Boilers
- Solar Panels
- Gas and Oil Boilers
- Heat Pumps
- Electric Elements
- Communal Boilers Systems
The Xcel stores the heat and uses it to provide enough hot water to run all hot taps at the same time, as well as central heating.
In doing so it makes it possible to run domestic properties from a zero-carbon approach, with backup options tied in.
Currently the most popular combination to achieve zero carbon is a wood burner as the primary heat source, driving central heating and hot water in winter, with solar thermal panels for hot water in summer. This combination has the added temptation of free hot water and heating.
A gas boiler has been the traditional backup, but this is changing towards wood chip, pellet or log boilers, and heat pumps, driven recently by the new feed in tariffs, that pay you money for doing so.
At both Ecobuild the HEATBANK™ was displayed as part of the exhibition’s main attraction, the Zero Carbon House.
“It is all very well having all this zero carbon heat if it then has nowhere to go. For many years this has held back the harvest possible from solar thermal and biomass and hence payback. Forming a partnership we found a like-minded manufacturer able to design heat stores to make the most of the renewable technologies we have sourced.”
The core of the Xcel system is a very high quality stainless steel storage cylinder. This is insulated and cased in a coated steel casing.
The unit provides 28 separate connections in various sizes, making any combination of heat sources and loads possible.
And keeping your options open for the future.
The finished Xcel is supplied to you as a fully fabricated system, as shown here.
Pumps, control valves, programmers…
all the components needed to make everything work in perfect harmony are factory fitted, wired and tested.
This approach has the added benefits of reduced installation times, 25 years design experience, and additional on-site backup.
