Heat Recovery Water Heater System - Zero Energy

$69999 /each

Product Overview

ZeroEnergy is a unique, innovative heat recovery system that provides free hot water while your air conditioner (AC) system is running. It connects to both your outdoor AC unit and your water heater, helping them both work more efficiently. Because water heating can be as much as 30% of your total energy bill, the higher your current water heating bill, the quicker ZeroEnergy will pay for itself. ZeroEnergy works so well that in the warmer months when your AC is running constantly, the hot water portion of your energy bill can be reduced to zero. Please see the attached product and installation videos for more details. Installation is available through The Home Depot certified installer network, so please call 813-978-3733 to speak with an Olive Tree Energy technician for product and installation questions.

Questions & Answers

I have trouble keeping my pool warm. Is it possible to connect two of these units to one heat pump?

One to heat domestic hot water and the second one would heat the pool.
Asked by: Poppa
You'd have to talk to the mfgr's rep., Olive Tree Energy, in Tampa, but I don't think one heat pump has enough "waste energy" to do both jobs. Hopefully I'm wrong.

What circulates the hot water through the ZeroEnergy unit?

I saw another unit, made by Aquefier, that uses a small water pump to circulate the water from the water heater to the Aquefier unit. How is hot water circulation achieved in the ZeroEnergy heat exchanger if there are no moving parts?
Asked by: ascottdude
Looking at the patents from Olive Tree Energy founder (https://www.google.com/patents/US9322600), it looks like a spiral heat exchanger with countercurrent flow with one line being the post compressor refrigerant and the other being the cold water from the bottom of the water heater. The compressor provides the flow for the hot refrigerant while the slight vertical angle for the heat exchanger will use a thermosyphon flow as a "pump" to draw cold water from the bottom of the water tank as the water gets warmed and rises. But this is why placement of the spiral exchanger is important to ensure flow. The video shows a solar (instead of refrigerant) heated thermosyphon pumping in action. Note: Not an employee or dealer. Just someone considering the solution for myself.

Will this system worth with a tankless hot water unit?

Will this system worth with a tankless hot water unit?
Asked by: PensacolaPI
The simple answer is no. However, it would work if you had a water tank that precedes the tankless hot water heater. For example, if you had a solar hot water heater, you would have a tank heated by solar which then feeds into a tankless hot water heater so as to ensure that your water was warm even when there were cloudy days. Similarly, you could have a water tank (such as a gas water heater that isn't connected to gas but is just used as storage) that is connected to ZeroEnergy which then feeds into a tankless hot water heater. Every degree that the water in the tank is heated by the ZeroEnergy, is heat that the tankless doesn't have to expend to achieve the desired temperature. You would have to make sure that the tankless hot water heater would be able to accept water that is hot rather than cold. (I've had a cheap tankless that would error out when water above about 90 degrees flowed into it. My current Rinai does fine with hot water coming in.)

Who installs it for you? Do they come out from home depot and install this system? Can it be installed after central air is installed and hot water heater is already installed in a new home project. Can be hooked up easily by someone who knows how to do it?
Asked by: banks123
It can be installed before or after the hvac is installed. Ditto the hot water tank. However, it might be easier when everything is new. Try to locate "Ramon" at Olive Tree Energy on Nebraska (Tampa). He's The Best, and helped me do mine about 10 years ago. However, ANY competent HVAC guy can install it for you by just following the (good) directions that come with the unit. BTW, the units do everything they say they can do.
