Choosing the perfect water heating solution can be a challenge, but Sunamp’s heat batteries offer a smart and cost-efficient option. These advanced systems are designed to provide hot water whenever you need it, whether it’s for a quick shower, a relaxing soak in the bath, or just to wash your hands!

How does Sunamp work?

Traditional electric water heaters simply heat a large volume of stored water and keep topping it up.  Whether you use that water or not, the system carries on topping up heat, and you carry on paying.

Sunamp Thermino water heaters deliver instant fast flowing hot water when you need it and stores heat for much, much longer than traditional sytems

When you want hot water, the cold water is instantly heated as it passes through the unit and comes through your hot taps at the same water pressure as the cold feed.

The Thermino range comes in 70, 150 and 210 sizes, which are industry-friendly litres-equivalent measurements to allow for direct comparison with the traditional hot water cylinders they replace.

They can be charged using any energy source. You can off-set peak energy costs by charging your Thermino with cheaper off-peak electricity, or divert energy from your solar PV, heat pumps or other renewable sources.

Say goodbye to bulky expansion tanks

Unlike traditional water heaters that require large expansion tanks, Sunamp Thermino heat batteries are sleek and space-saving. They’re up to four times smaller than the equivalent hot water cylinder, making them ideal for homes and businesses where space is limited.

What can Sunamp do?

  • Ideal for showers

Enjoy a consistent supply of hot water for refreshing showers, without having to wait for a large water tank to heat up

Fill your bathtub with hot water quickly and efficiently for a relaxing and luxurious experience

Sunamp heat batteries are suitable for many commercial applications, providing reliable hot water for businesses.

Sunamp water heater vs. traditional boilers

Compared to traditional boilers, Sunamp water heaters offer several advantages:

  • Save space

Their compact design saves space, making them ideal for properties where space is at a premium

  • Improved efficiency

Sunamp heat batteries are energy efficient and can be charged via a range of energy sources, including solar PV and heat pumps

  • Environmentally friendly

By reducing your energy consumption, Sunamp water heaters can help minimise your environmental impact.

Sunamp Thermino water heater vs. tankless water heaters

Tankless water heaters heat water on demand without the need for a storage tank, whereas Sunamp’s Thermino heat batteries store thermal energy in a phase change material (PCM) and release it when needed. While tankless water heaters are popular, a Sunamp Thermino provides additional benefits:

  • Fast charging

Sunamp water heaters can charge quickly, ensuring hot water is always available when needed

  • Energy storage

They can store excess energy from renewable sources, making them a more sustainable choice

  • Longevity

Sunamp heat batteries are durable and built to last, offering reliable performance for years. In fact, Sunamp is the only heat battery manufacturer in the world to be awarded A Grade RAL Certification, which confirms performance with no noticeable degradation to 10,000 cycles – the equivalent of over 13 years of daily use at two cycles per day of hot water application. Sunamp’s own testing has so far confirmed failsafe performance to over 40,000 cycles – that’s over 50 years of continuous use!

Sunamp Thermino water heater as energy storage

Thermino heat batteries are essentially energy storage devices, allowing you to save surplus energy for later use. This flexibility helps you to optimise your energy usage and reduce costs over time.
