Green heating system unveiled



Green heating system unveiled
A new heating system was displayed to audiences at the recent Grand Designs Live conference.

The product works by converting thermal fluid into high-energy output, which had led its manufacturer FARHO to believe that it will help households cut fuel bills and reduce their carbon footprints.

Gareth Bishop, sales manager for FARHO UK, said that the system has many advantages and has been perfected through 15 years of design.

"It's eco friendly, doesn't consume much, doesn't burn. It's non-toxic, non-corrosive. The actual unit is completely eco friendly," he commented.

Mr Bishop added that the system "maintains a very efficient way of transmitting input and output. We're having 110 watts of input and we're having an equivalent of 150 kilocalories of output, which roughly works out to 74.7 watts of energy."

According to recent data from AMA Research, the domestic heating market in the UK is valued at around £1.3 billion.

This is a fluid filled electric radiator. Electricity is the highest carbon fuel available. How is this at all green?

Translation of the marketting language: "It's an electric heater"

Probably not going to change the world then. And not in the least bit green until the grid is significantly decarbonised (i.e. in about 25 years).

This is a bizarre article that makes little sense and reveals nothing much about the system - it sounds like greenwash to me and the discussion replies seem to agree.
