The 'SunPump' is a solar-powered heating system that provides a sustainable way of heating homes in cooler climates. Although many people rely on solar panels for electricity, they need to rely on other power sources to heat their home. The SunPump provides a way to use solar panels as a heating system.

The SunPump works by pumping refrigerant into solar panels that are already installed on the roof of a consumer's home. The light from the sun makes the solar panels more efficient, allowing them to heat water in a thermal battery. This water can then be piped to radiators or heat exchanges. The device works both at night and in dim lighting, making it ideal for cool climates that do not experience constant sunshine. Not only is the system efficient, but it also helps the consumer save on the cost of heating their home.

The solar-powered heating system is ideal for consumers who are looking for a more sustainable way to heat their home in the winter.
