Save up to 80% of Hot Water Energy Use*
A Rheem solar hot water system is an excellent environmental and financial investment. It can significantly reduce fossil fuel energy use and consequent pollution and greenhouse gas emissions. Not only are you helping the environment by installing a Rheem solar hot water system, you could also enjoy substantial savings on your household hot water energy use of up to 80%.*
Rheem Loline solar water heaters are direct systems suitable for warmer climates and areas with good water quality.
How Direct Solar Works
Solar water heaters work by absorbing energy from the sun’s rays in roof mounted solar collectors. This energy is transferred to heat water stored in the storage tank. Ground mounted systems rely on inbuilt pumps to push the water through the system. Typically water passes through channels in the solar collector where the water is heated. As the water moves out of the collector and into the tank, the tank gradually gets hotter until the water reaches its maximum stored temperature.
- Split design reduces the structural load on your roof.
- Multi-rise collectors efficiently absorb energy from the sun.
- Electric and Gas boosted models available.
Rheem Premier® Loline solar water heater is an indirect solar water heater specifically designed for cooler climates and areas with poor water quality.
How Indirect Solar Works
Indirect models are designed for frost prone areas and work in much the same way as direct models but rather than heating water ‘directly’ in the solar collectors, heat exchange fluid with anti-freeze properties is heated. This in turn ‘indirectly’ heats the water. Indirect heating prevents water freezing and damage to collectors.
- Complete frost protection.
- Split design reduces the structural load on your roof. • Top mounted solar connections on the tank are located safely out of reach of children.
- Features drain back technology to prevent freezing of collectors in cold conditions and overheating in hot climates.
Why Rheem Solar
Energy efficient – uses up to 80% less energy than an electric water heater, saving you money*.
Reduces carbon emissions – solar systems save up to 3.3 tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions every year1.
Minimise reliance on fossil fuels and protect yourself against future energy cost increases – take advantage of Australia’s abundant supply of sunlight, and reduce your reliance on expensive, non-renewable gas and electricity.
Complete range – the Rheem solar range includes both split, ground mounted systems and complete roof mounted models in a variety of capacities from 160 – 410 Litres.
Booster options – Rheem solar systems are available with electric or gas boosting, providing hot water during cloudy weather, or at night.
The NPT Series is our largest selling collector. Designed to supply you and your family abundant hot water, the NPT collector is solidly constructed from high grade copper and aluminium, and is housed in a durable ZINCALUME® tray.
TBT – The Ultimate Collector
The TBT Series collector is designed especially for high performance. Rheem has taken advantage of the latest advances in heat-transfer technology to build superior solar collectors to gather as much of the sun’s energy as required. The TBT Series collector uses an advanced titanium coated copper solar absorber plate combining first grade copper with titanium, to show superior qualities in solar performance when compared with other solar collectors available.
Which System Suits You
Which system you choose will depend on where in Australia you live, which way your home faces and even the pitch of your roof. So it’s important to talk to your local Rheem Solar Specialist about the Rheem hot water system which is ideal for you. There will be days during the year when your solar system doesn’t receive sufficient energy from the sun to provide all the hot water you need. Rheem gives you the option to have either an in tank electric element booster or a gas in-line continuous flow boosting unit. The choice is yours; ask your local Rheem Solar Specialist which option would be best suited to you.
