(now Rinnai Hot Water)
Solar Hot Water
Beasley manufactured 3 types of solar hot water systems. (product brochure)
1.Close coupled solar
Both the solar collector panels and tank are on the roof. There was no recirculation pump or long pipe runs – reducing heat loss. These units came in a range of Colorbond colours to compliment your roof.
Beasley solar hot water heaters were efficient, economical and low maintenance.
- Technically very efficient, economical to install and low maintenance
- No recirculating pumps and pipe runs – very efficient
- No electricity required to operate pumps to pump the water up to the panels
- It was available in a wide range of Colorbond® colours.
- Compact 180L tanks, ideal for gas boost systems
- Conventional 330L and High capacity 480L for larger homes
SA Hot Water™ can repair and service Beasley close-coupled systems. In the event the systems is unable to be repaired we would recommend Envirosun Solar as a suitable replacement model.
2. Split system solar
Only the solar collector panels sat on the roof. The storage tank was situated on the ground. The main benefit of this system was that the tank could be placed away from the panels in the most convenient location – usually on the ‘blind side’ of the house, somewhere “out of the way”. A small pump circulated the water from the tank through the panels to collect the energy from the sun. This pump was automatically regulated by a controller that monitors the temperature in both the tank and collector panels and optimises solar gain.
- Easy to install
- Streamlined appearance – looked good.
- Split systems do not require reinforcement of the roof as the weight from water storage was on the ground.
- Tall solar tank provides better heat stratification, improving efficiency.
- Simpler service access (ground level)
The solar storage tank could be fitted with either an electric or gas booster.
SA Hot Water™ can repair and service Beasley split-systems solar heaters. In the event the systems is unable to be repaired we would recommend the Kelvinator 340F2A as a suitable replacement model.
This high quality in-roof mains pressure solar hot water system featured two flat-plate collectors. Ideal for a wood-fired boost, or replacing gravity-fed electric systems and for where ground space is at a premium. The water was provided to the tank by mains pressure then heated by the solar panels on the roof.
• 370 litre copper in-roof tank with Roofmaster coil
• 2 frost tolerant flat-plate collectors
• 7yr warranty on tank and collectors
• Ideal system for wood-fire boosting
SA Hot Water™ can repair and service Beasley Roofmaster heaters. In the event the systems is unable to be repaired we would recommend Red Circle Solar as a suitable replacement model as these have the option to input additional heat into the tank from other devices e.g. woodstove, hydronic boiler.
