How the heat pump uses CO2 to heat water
A Reclaim Energy CO2 Heat Pump Hot Water System uses leading technology to draw energy in from the ambient atmosphere and transfer it into heat. Ozone friendly refrigerant (CO2) absorbs the heat, which then flows into a compressor, where it’s converted into a high temperature gas. It then passes through a condenser within the water heat exchanger and the water is heated and then stored in the hot water tank for later use. No backup booster is required.
This means the Reclaim Energy CO2 Heat Pump Hot Water System requires much less electricity to heat water when compared to conventional hot water systems.
Because the system runs off electricity, combining it with your own electricity generation from PV panels enhances this reduction in energy consumption and costs. You can also avoid exporting to the grid for little return with low buy back power tariffs.
Flexible, easy installation in all situations
- Indoor or outdoor hot water cylinder location
- Top down heat pump water heating for quick hot water recovery
- CO2 refrigerant ideally suited to excel in cold weather conditions
- Natural CO2 refrigerant is ozone and environmentally friendly
- High COP creating high energy from low energy input
- Whisper quiet operation level at 37 dB
- Has the ability to heat hot water from as little as $1 per day
- One shot boost function for immediate water heating
- Designed to optimise your PV electricity generated, rather than exporting and losing most of the value
- Smart controller allows you to take control over your energy costs and consumption
Efficient hot water heating
It’s important to have enough hot water storage for efficient running so we recommend a 300L cylinder. So no matter your house design we have a solution to suit your hot water needs.
