Streamline Closed Circuit Gas Boosted
Description
The Solahart Streamline closed circuit system is a split system solar water heater
with roof mounted slimline collectors and a ground mounted outdoor storage
tank. It is suitable for use in low to high solar gain areas. The closed circuit design
protects the system from freezing, making it suitable for regions prone to frost.
The Streamline closed circuit system offers a choice of either the Solahart Kf or
J collector. Both model collectors feature Solahart’s revolutionary multi-flow
collector panel which uses a huge 35 risers to extract the maximum amount of
energy from the sun. The ultra-high efficiency absorber of the Kf collector with its
Black Chrome selective surface maximises the absorption of available solar energy
providing even more savings.
The system is equipped with a gas booster which senses when boosting is required
to ensure continuous hot water regardless of the weather. The water heater also
offers the convenience of dual temperature outlets, so tempered water can be
delivered to the bathrooms and hot water can be delivered to the kitchen and
laundry.
Key Features
•Stylish slimline design
•Solar connections to top of the tank
makes for simpler and tidier installation
•Dual temperature outlets
•Variable flow through solar collectors
to maximise solar gain
• Choice of collectors to suit high to
low solar gain areas
• Suitable for frost prone areas
•5 star efficiency with instantaneous
gas boosting
• Natural gas and propane models available
• Flexible installation options
Key Benefits
• S ave 50% to 80% on your water heating
energy consumption*
• C
ontinuous hot water regardless of
the weather
• C
an qualify for valuable government
environmental incentives*
• R
educed energy use saves on CO2
emissions every year*
• P
eace of mind with Solahart’s 5/3/1
year warranty+
• S pace efficient and flexibility with
installation
+ Warranty Details: 5/3/1 - 5 year cylinder and collectors, 3 year labour on cylinder, 1 year parts and labour, 1 year labour on collectors, applies to a single family domestic dwelling only. All other applications have a 3/1/1 warranty - 3 year cylinder, 1 year collectors, 1 year parts and labour.
* Savings of 50%-80% shown are based on Australian Government approved TRNSYS simulation modelling. Savings and incentives will vary depending upon your location, type of Solahart system installed, orientation and inclination of the solar collectors, type of water heater being replaced, hot water consumption and fuel tariff. Maximum financial savings off your hot water bill are achievable when replacing an electric water heater on continuous tariff.
