Solahart RCS Series Solar Hot Water Heater for Brisbane South

Ground-Mounted Direct Split Systems

Our RCS Series solar hot water system is exclusive to Solahart. 

It features an open-circuit split-system solar hot water heater with roof mounted slimline collectors and a tank that be can be installed on the ground. This feature gives you more flexibility than a traditional roof-mounted solar hot water system when it comes to selecting the installation location.

The solar collectors are mounted on your roof and feature a low profile for a clean look. The tank can be mounted at ground level in a discreet, out-of-sight location. 

We’ll help you select a suitable location as part of our free on-site solar assessment.

Choosing a split-system such as the RCS Series by Solahart allows you to maximise the potential savings by heating your hot water from the sun whilst also minimising the visual impact.

Open-circuit system with enhanced frost protection

These open-circuit systems have enhanced recirculating freeze protection(‡), utilising an electronically controlled back-up frost element for cold weather conditions. They can be installed at altitudes up to 600m.

An RCS07X series system with CSA2007 collectors is recommended for an installation between 400m and 600m altitude, in preference to an RLX series system.
