Better looking Rheem solar water heater launched
Solar hot water just got a lot better looking with the introduction of the Rheem
Premier Loline Solar Water Heater that has discrete solar collectors (panels)
that go on the roof while the tank can be tucked away at ground level.
The Rheem Premier Loline was designed specifically for use in environments
prone to frost, and with most water qualities. The water is heated by a heat
exchange fluid that passes through the solar collectors to capture the sunís
energy. When heating is complete, or during periods of frost, the fluid drains
back into the tank providing total frost protection down to -17įC.
This new system is not only environmentally friendly but it meets the
stringent regulations for new homes in NSW, Victoria and Queensland. These new
building regulations have recently been introduced with the intention of
reducing the greenhouse gas emissions new homes produce.
For additional durability, the Premier Loline has a vitreous enamel-lined
tank which can withstand all water conditions found in Australia.
With the majority of plumbing completed in the factory, the Rheem Premier
Loline reduces a lot of on-site plumbing work normally associated with solar
water system installations. This ensures installation time is reduced, and
aesthetics are improved with much of the plumbing neatly concealed.
To make sure you donít run out of hot water even on cloudy days, the Rheem
Premier Loline is available in a gas-boosted or electric-boosted model. When the
solar collectors do not receive enough sunlight, the boosting kicks in.
The cylinder, collectors and gas booster heat exchanger have a five year
warranty, while the labour on cylinders has three years and the parts and labour
Rheem Premier Loline is available in a 270 litre model with integrated or
remote five star instantaneous in-line gas boosting or an electric booster
option. It is available from most plumbing supply merchants. Call Rheem
