Heat Recovery Water Heater System - Zero Energy

$ 645 24 /each

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 can't use this unit because the salt or chlorine in the pool water will eat up the coil in short order. You need one that is made out of titanium just like the heat exchangers in pool heaters are. There are similar units out there made for pools as it's a great source for "FREE" heat for your pool.

Does this work with tankless hot water systems?

Asked by: Dave
Doesn't , since you must have a storage tank

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.

I have a Goodman with a 5 ton condenser. It's near Albany, NY- and the temps drop below zero Fahrenheit a few times each winter. Would this system be effective in such an environment, or would I have to disconnect it in the winter to avoid frozen water in the lines?
Asked by: Michael
Hi Michael. ZeroEnergy is unique because it is installed indoors next to your water heater. The refrigerant line is run from the outside compressor to ZeroEnergy. The water lines are all indoors so there's no chance of freezing pipes. If you have additional questions, my email is gonegreenearth@live.com and phone is 484-255-4653. Thanks! Mark

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We installed this heat recovery unit on to a 2.5 ton Air Conditioner heat pump condenser and plum... We installed this heat recovery unit on to a 2.5 ton Air Conditioner heat pump condenser and plumed it into a New Rheem 85 gallon Marathon Commercial electric water outside a home ( where a small room will be built over the water heater ) and within about and hour with the air conditioner running we had 139 F degree hot water temperature on a hot water faucet before we installed the anti scald valve in the house and the power turned OFF feeding the water heater. So it seems as long as the Air Conditioner runs a few hours a day the water heater elements will probably not even turn on and with the Marathon water heater there is very little heat loss the tank itself will hold hot water for days after its heated. Hot water out temperature at the ZeroEnergy unit 143 F degrees, Hot gas in temperature at the ZeroEnergy unit 181 F degrees. The current pull on the Air Conditioner was reading 11.2 amps to start after installing the ZeroEnergy unit on to the existing system the Amp Draw went down to 9.3 which in theory turned this 13 seer heat pump into a around a 15 seer system plus free heated water. Over all ZeroEnergy water heater system is a great idea and a big energy saver and with a Marathon water heater makes even more better and efficient.
