The perfect hot water system for your home

Very Simply

A hot water heater that multiplies your energy by up to five times

When a Reclaim Energy CO2 heat pump stores heat in your hot water cylinder it’s delivering 5 times more energy than the electricity it uses.  Whether you’re on mains power or have your own PV system (solar power) a Reclaim heat pump will maximise your savings.

Combined with your PV system it will optimise your investment, multiplying your savings on hot water and avoid exporting to the grid for little return with low buy back power tariffs.

Find out more about how it works

Super Efficent

The Reclaim Energy CO2 hot water system consists of a heat pump (compressor) and a hot water cylinder (stainless steel or glass lined). The system collects heat from the air surrounding the compressor using CO2, a natural, environmentally friendly refrigerant.

It can deliver more than five units of heat energy from the air for every unit of electricity it consumes.  This means that the cost of energy used to produce your hot water is minimised. Using CO2 as the refrigerant Reclaim heat pumps have excellent cold weather performance, there is never any need for an electrical element to supplement heating your water.

The smart controller ensures that the heat pump provides you, the householder with a highly efficient, low operating cost hot water solution. Combining the system with your own electricity generation from PV panels enhances this reduction in energy consumption and costs. Our interactive controls and monitoring allows you to take control over your energy generation and management for all your hot water needs.

Flow Smart

In bigger & longer houses where hot water outlets are further apart FlowSmart provides any hot water outlets that are distant from a cylinder with almost instant hot water with an energy efficient, low cost and easy to install solution. This enables a single hot water cylinder to serve outlets that would usually be too far away and may otherwise require a second water heater.

The system is designed for homes with hot water outlet/s that are more than 12m from the hot water cylinder. By including FlowSmart a single hot water system can be used throughout the home, making it easier to specify a single, energy efficient hot water system such as hot water heat pump, solar system or central heating boiler plus cylinder.

Efficient hot water

The Reclaim Energy CO2 hot water heat pump is a split system so your hot water cylinder can be either indoors or outdoors.  For even more flexibility a Reclaim heat pump can be fitted to almost any hot water cylinder.

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.

Let’s look at the Smart Controller Options and help you RECLAIM your energy needs.

This is default function and runs unit 24/7 turning on and off through the thermostat.

Off Peak 1 Mode commences at 2200 hours (10pm) and remains active for 9 hours.

Off Peak 2 Mode commences at 2200 hours (10pm) and remains active for 19 hours.

This is a preset mode for customers WITH PV systems, in this mode the system will receive power from the time of day their PV system is producing power. 10am for a period of 5 hours or until System has reached 60oC. The PV system creates power & feeds the HP to heat the water for free instead of going back into the grid.

This option allows customers to set their own boosting times based on their own unique requirements.  The first timer lasts for 6 hours for highest efficiency, the second can be for a shorter period.
