solar hot water – iStore 180l Air to energy

iStore 180L Revolutionising Hot Water

As we shift toward the era of energy independence, with battery storage being the choice for clean power, the iStore offers a cost effective storage solution as an alternative and reliable storage device. Further maximise the full potential of the iStore by syncing it with a solar power system, and the easy-to-use, built-in smart timer will offset any excess power to the iStore, saving you even more.

How it works

The iStore 180L is a thermal energy storage unit that stores your excess solar energy and transforms it into hot water for you to use when you need it.

The iStore utilises intelligent technology to convert air into hot water.

The iStore storage capacity could be compared to a 6 kW traditional battery system.

  1. A fan draws in air containing heat energy, across the evaporator.
  2. The evaporator turns the liquid refrigerant into a gas.
  3. The compressor pressurises the refrigerant into a hot gas.
  4. The hot gas inside the condenser coil heats the water inside the coil-wrapped tank.
  5. The refrigerant reverts back to a liquid after heating the water and continues to the evaporator for the process to start again.
  6. The cycle continues until the set target temperature is achieved.
