Hot Water Systems

Up to 30% of your electricity consumption is from your hot water system.

Future NRG supplies and installs a range of energy efficient hot water systems to the Shepparton and Echuca community and beyond. Our hot water systems include the Reclaim CO2 Heat Pump, the Apricus Evacuated Tube system and the Takagi Gas Continuous Flow system.

Reclaim Energy Heat Pump

RECLAIM energy Heat Pump

It's time for massive savings off your energy bill.

The Reclaim energy CO2 Heat Pump consists of a heat pump (compressor) and a storage tank (stainless steel or glass lined). The system's heat exchange collects heat from the air surrounding the unit to use as energy for the refrigerant which is ozone friendly CO2. The unit can supply in excess of five units of heat energy from ambient air for every unit of electricity it consumes meaning that the cost of energy used to produce hot water is minimised.

Our Reclaim energy CO2 Heat pump has excellent cold weather performance characteristics therefore there is no need for a boosting element to supplement heating for your unit. Our smart controller ensures that the Reclaim energy CO2 heat pump provides you, the householder with a highly efficient, low operating cost hot water solution. Combining the system with PV only enhances a householders reduction in energy consumption and costs. Our interactive controls and monitoring allows you the customer to take control over your energy generation and management for all your hot water needs.

With our Reclaim Energy CO2 Heat Pump hot water system you will use less energy than an electric water heater for a higher thermal output.

Apricus Evacuated Tube Solar Hot Water

Apricus Evacuated Tube Solar Hot Water

An Apricus solar hot water system comprises of a storage tank, an electric boosted storage tank or gas booster, evacuated tube solar collectors, a solar controller and pump. The system uses a solar controller and pump to transfer cold water from the tank to the solar collectors to be heated and returned to the top of the tank. The solar controller compares the water temperature in the collector to that in the tank. When the collector is hotter than the tank, the pump switches on, transferring the solar heated water to the tank. A booster is required to deliver hot water in times of low solar contribution or times of excessive hot water consumption.

Apricus evacuated tube collectors are designed for even the toughest Australian conditions. They passively track the sun for more hours of the day to provide greater solar collection. The evacuated tube collectors are highly efficient, lightweight and low maintenance. They can withstand hail and frost and the mounting frames are rated to withstand cyclonic winds.
