Why not ask how you can save 80% of your hot water heating costs?

We only sell CO2 Heat Pumps. Why?

We only sell CO2 Heat pumps because they are the best Heat pumps available for heating water and work best in most climates.
With a COP (coefficient of performance) of 4.5 a CO2 air source Heat Pump will generate 4.5 times the amount of heat compared to the energy input. A higher efficiency means a lower running cost to you and a better outcome for the environment.

How a CO2 Heat pump works.

A heat pump uses the energy in the ambient air (Air heated by the sun) and transfers that heat to water using a heat exchanger. Let’s say the air temp is 15 deg C. So how does 15 Deg air heat water to a temperature that can be used in the house? The answer is Pressure! And lots of it. Read More

Reclaim Heat Pumps from Exegi Solar

A solar heat pump is an incredibly energy efficient way of heating your water. If you install one, you’ll notice a reduction in your energy bills, and you’ll also be playing an important role in ensuring that our environment is safer and healthier.

If you decide to invest in a solar hot water pump, you’ll want to ensure that you’re working with the very best in the business. This will mean you get the very best equipment and materials possible, as well as the best service at the best price. Here’s a closer look at why Exegi Solar is the best partner for you and how our solution works.

Free Hot Water with a Reclaim Heat Pump

If you really want to reduce your electricity costs dramatically, the Reclaim heat pump may just be the answer. Capable of integrating with a split solar hot water system, it can realistically produce all the hot water you want for free.

Even if you don’t have solar panels, the heat pump is a great choice because it can really cut your electricity bills when compared with conventional methods of heating your water. And it’s great for the environment due to reduced emissions and an ozone friendly CO2 refrigerant.

How a Reclaim Energy CO2 Heat Pump Can Save You Money

The heat pump is so efficient that it can supply up to five units of heat energy for every unit of electricity it uses. It does this by taking heat from the surrounding air and using it as energy for the ozone friendly, CO2 refrigerant. This goes through a heat exchanger to heat the water and create as much hot water as you need.

If you have a PV solar system, the electricity can come from that rather than going back into the grid and is therefore effectively free. Even if you don’t have PV solar, the unit uses only an average of 3 kWh per day and has an estimated annual running cost of $360 at 2018 prices. On that basis, the unit can pay for itself very quickly.

To help you get the best from the system and make maximum savings, the unit has five pre-set options:

  1. The default setting runs 24/7, turning on automatically when the water drops below a required temperature.
  2. Off-peak mode 1 turns on at 22:00 hours and runs for nine hours.
  3. Off-peak mode 2 also starts at 22:00 hours and stays active for nineteen hours.
  4. This is specifically for those with PV systems and so is active whenever the solar system is producing power. This generally runs for five hours from 10:00 am, turning on if the hot water temperature falls below 60⁰C.
  5. This setting allows users to set their own boost times based on individual needs. It has 2 set points so you can run the system during the day and also have a boost time either at night or early in the morning depending on the household hot water use pattern.

Choice of Tanks Provides Hot Water for All

Flexibility doesn’t just extend to the source of the electricity but also to the source of the water. There’s the choice of a glass lined, enamel tank that’s suitable for all types of water, including areas of hard water and any with high mineral content, and stainless steel versions that are suitable for all other water types and are available in tall and squat variations, the latter suitable for under house installation.

All solar hot water tanks come in 315 litre capacity so there’ll be plenty of hot water for everyone. And a single shot boost option combined with a top down heating method ensures hot water can be provided quickly when needed.

The whole system is STC and VEEC approved and qualifies for solar hot water rebates. Added to its high COP that creates high energy output from low energy input, that ensures your initial investment is recovered quickly and the cost of operation is as low as $1 a day.

In-built frost control makes the solar hot water system ideal for all areas and weathers while Legionella control ensures clean and pure water is output. The system also operates at a whisper quiet 37 dB and so won’t annoy your neighbours. So all in all, no matter where you live, whatever the source of your water and however you obtain your electricity, the Reclaim Energy CO2 Heat Pump has it covered.

Free heat from the air is heat you do not need to pay for!

Using a heat pump will save you money. The heat pump has a fan that blows the air past a radiator (like the one in your car) and the radiator transfers the heat in the air to a refrigerant gas.  The gas is now 15 Deg.  The gas is then pumped through a compressor and pressurized. As the gas is pressurized, the temperature in the pressurized gas increases. The gas is pressurized to a point where the temperature of the gas is 65 Deg C! heating water to this temperature makes it safe for use in the house. The 65 Deg C heat is then transferred to water using a heat exchange. The hot water is then transferred to the hot water storage tank for later use.

Superior efficiency = Guaranteed savings.

As a result of superior efficiency, you save money. Using a refrigerant gas and a compressor it is possible to multiply the energy input by a factor a 5. Ie, an efficient heat pump can produce 5 times more energy (in the form of heat) than the energy used (electricity) to run the machine.  This is not magic. Just a smart way to use electricity if what you need is heat or hot water.

In contrast to this technology, an electric element can not generate more heat than the amount of electricity it uses. For example, 1000 watts of electricity used in an element to heat water will produce slightly less than 1000 watts of heat. A heat pump will produce 5000 watts of heat. Therefore you save 80% of the running costs.

For example:

A fridge uses this same principle but in reverse as it takes heat from the food and expels it out of the fridge through the radiator in the back.  Food/ external heat source heats the fridge, heat is transferred to a gas, gas is pressurized and therefore increasing the temperature differential compared to the ambient air,  heat is transferred to the ambient air.  Everything is trying to be the same temperature all the time which is why CO2 Heat pumps work so well.
