The Doucette Industries Aquefierô R6K-410 Heat Recovery Unit captures waste heat discharged from the refrigerant cycle in an air conditioning or heat pump system, and transfers that heat into a water heater tank creating hot water for domestic use. Not only does it substantially reduce the amount of energy required to provide domestic hot water, but it also improves the cooling efficiency of the air conditioner or heat pump while it is operating.
The refrigerant side of the unit is installed in the refrigerant hot gas line between the compressor and condenser coil for an air conditioner, or between compressor and reversing valve for a heat pump. The water side of the heat exchanger is connected to the water heater tank to form a circulation loop. Waste heat can be collected when the compressor is operating, the water circulating from the water heater tank is less than 140F°, and the refrigerant temperature is greater than 125F°.
