Rheem Loline 270L Solar
Rheem are the leading brand of hot water systems in Australia, and they have been popular ever since they first started making their systems here in 1939. Their extensive range of reliable and efficient hot water systems, as well as their network of service agents all across the country make them Australia’s favourite name in the hot water system industry.
The Rheem Loline 270L is a solar hot water service that is suitable for small to medium sized families. Solar water heaters use roof mounted solar panels to absorb energy from the heat of the sun, which is then transferred to the water tank at ground level. The Rheem Loline has a storage capacity of 270 litres. At times when there is less sunlight available, the system uses a booster to produce hot water. This system has the option of either a gas or electric booster. The gas booster is capable of producing 24 litres of hot water each minute, which is enough for households of two to five people. The gas booster produces a continuous flow of hot water, meaning that hot water is always available. The electric booster has a capacity of 140 litres, enough to service a household of one to three people. The Rheem Loline uses mains pressure, meaning that there will always be enough hot water pressure, even when using multiple hot taps simultaneously. This solar hot water system is best suited to households in warmer climates in areas with good water quality.
The Rheem Loline solar hot water system is ideal for those on a budget who would like to see reductions of their energy expenses. Solar water heating is extremely energy efficient and reduces energy use by up to 65% to 70%. Anyone switching from an older storage hot water system will notice a huge difference on their energy bills. The system can be made even more energy efficient when paired with the continuous flow gas booster, which only heats water when it is required and only turns on when the water temperature is less than 58°. Being highly energy efficient means that the Rheem Loline is environmentally friendly. It allows a household to reduce their greenhouse emissions significantly.
