2016’s harsh winter left many of us without power for extended periods of time. Power outages went from bad to worse for those who have fireplaces that rely on electricity to ignite.
Fortunately, there are alternative energy sources, such as thermoelectric power, that can generate electricity. II-VI Marlow’s Thermoelectric Generators are a simple, cost- effective alternative to electric, battery or solar power.
II-VI Marlow Thermoelectric Generators start your fireplace and operate by converting heat into electricity. One side of the thermoelectric generator is exposed to high temperatures inside the fireplace while the opposite side stays cool. Once a temperature differential forms, heat moves across the module and is converted into electricity.
Excess power produced by a thermoelectric generator can be stored in lithium batteries. These batteries provide power for the next time your power goes out.
In addition to keeping you warm during a power outage, thermoelectric generators are a great way to reduce you and your family’s environmental footprint.
Thermoelectric generators are a safe, renewable source of energy that does not produce any waste. They are a great alternative energy source if you are looking to live a more sustainable lifestyle.
Whether you are preparing for next winters power outages or want to find an alternative source of energy to power your electronics, II-VI Marlow Power Generators are a great fit for any home.
