Words by Apricus Eco Hot Water & Heating

Houses built today need to serve our needs right now, while considering the needs of following generations. The decisions we make now in the specification and design of homes have a significant cumulative impact over time. That is why Reclaim Energy provides you with nothing but excellence in hot water performance while delivering extremely low environmental impacts by using leading Japanese technology and natural refrigerants.

Providing hot water is still the number one energy use for most of our homes. This is especially true in new builds where more efficient heating, insulation, solar design, lighting and appliances mean less total energy use. As these energy demands diminish, efficient water heating becomes increasingly important for better performing homes.

Higher Performance, lower energy use

Using CO2 refrigerants means higher performance during operation and therefore lower lifetime energy use. In addition, when released CO2 has a Global Warming Potential of only x 1 compared to traditional refrigerants of x 1,300. This means that every single kilo of standard refrigerant emitted to atmosphere is the equivalent of 1.3 tonnes of CO2.

This isn’t to mention some of Reclaim Energy’s other attributes:

  • whisper quiet operation - 37dB
  • indoor or outdoor hot water cylinder - New Zealand mreclaimade, duplex stainless steel
  • extremely rapid heat recovery - water delivered at 63°C from heat pump
  • suitable for medium density and apartments - separate outdoor compressor & cylinder
