Although the Ecombi SOLAR system has been developed to exploit the surpluses from photovolatic installations or solar panels, it is possible to activate Ecombi SOLAR, through domotic systems, at the light point to power the storage heater.
ELNUR GABARRON provides you with a heating calculator that takes into consideration the characteristics of each room in the house and the climate in your area. It calculates the output and consumption needed to heat your home.
The closest equipment to the switchboard needs to be a maximum of below 30 metres, assuming 2 or 3 walls between them. The different Ecombi SOLAR storage heaters combine to form a radio-frequency communication network. Together, they operate as a signal repeater that transmits, without any problem, the instructions from the App to the storage heater furthest away from the switchboard.
- If there is a day without the necessary surplus to charge the storage heater, can Ecombi SOLAR be used?
If we want to heat the room only with this storage heater and if, one day, there are not sufficient surpluses to meet the temperature demand, Ecombi SOLAR can complete the missing charge by using the most economical energy. The equipment will charge during the off-peak period and when hourly tariffs are lower.
- Is it necessary to connect Ecombi SOLAR to the App?
To exploit the surpluses in an intelligent way and automatically with the storage heaters, it is essential to connect the Ecombi SOLAR equipment to our Elnur Gabarron Wifi Control Solar App. It is totally free and available for IOS and Android devices alike.
- What is Solar Box?
It is an accessory needed to exploit the surpluses. It is supplied separately from the equipment and it is only necessary to supply one for the entire home, provided the home does not exceed 30 installed equipment units.
- Is the system compatible with the inverter of my photovoltaic installation?
Yes, our Solar Manager system is independent of the installation inverter. Consequently, it is universal and valid for any photovoltaic installation.
- Is it possible to select different priorities in each room when distributing the energy?
Yes, via the App it is possible to allocate, room by room, the different levels of priority: HIGH, MEDIUM and LOW. The Solar Manager system will take into account the room temperatures and instructions of each.
- Am I able to know how much solar energy each piece of equiment exploited?
Yes. Our daily, monthly and annual graphics show both the global exploitation of heating surpluses and the individual exploitation in each room. Should it be necessary to supplement the photovoltaic charge, the consumption in off-peak times is also shown.
- Am I able to rationalize the total output of the equipment for the off-peak period?
Yes, if the equipment is operating in the mode (solar + off-peak), it is possible to set on the App the maximum simultaneous output of the equipment below which we do not wish to go. So, we can set to the maximum the output employed in the off-peak period.
- Does Ecombi SOLAR require maintenance?
No, as it is a 100% electrical system, there is no combustion in its operation. So, it is a totally safe system and does not require any sort of maintenance.
- Does the system take into consideration the temperature in each room?
Yes, each piece of equipment has a temperature sensor and informs the App of the temperature of the room where it is installed.
- Will my solar generation be enough to have heating with Ecombi SOLAR?
Every home is different. It depends on many factors, such as the performance of the panels and installation inverter, the output of the necessary equipment, the delivery temperatures selected, the amount of house insulation, the windows, the home’s orientation, etc. Remember that, if it is the only heating system, if necessary the photovoltaic charge can be supplemented by energy captured during the off-peak period.
