For many years, heating your hot water using electricity has involved the installation of a water cylinder.
There has been little to no innovation within the water heating space in recent times, which is no good for an ever changing world where efficiency and climate change are a huge universal focus.
With two immersion-heating elements within, water cylinders are an old-fashioned solution to an ongoing problem of trying obtain to instant hot water without the hassle of boiling it yourself. This is not forgetting that the aforementioned elements are usually only guaranteed for 1-2 years (exceptions apply). Usually installed in airing cupboards or bathrooms, they take up space you could otherwise use for storage or the expansion of a room to open up your living space and bring light in to your home.
Not only do you have the installation of the cylinder itself to worry about, cylinders also require long lengths of discharge pipework to be fed to the outside of your property and down to ground level, causing more mess and inconvenience during their installation, as well as unsightly additions to the outside of your property.
Add this to the fact you have to install a number of different pressure valves and stop valves; your installation becomes an even bigger task.
Introducing the new Aquafficient by Fischer Future Heat. A modern, efficient and reliable way to heat your water. Using a single 3kW heating element and patented thermal storage technology, the Aquafficient provides instant hot water, as and when you need it, without the need for huge amounts of water storage. No yearly maintenance is required, taking away the stress of finding a plumber to check over your system and also eliminating the cost of doing so.
There is also no requirement for any extra valves or fixings, or even a water discharge pipe, meaning the installation of the Aquafficient is stress free and mess free, even in smaller or more difficult to access areas of your home.
Manufactured specially for Fischer Future Heat, the Aquafficient uses a natural salt-based thermal storage material to store its heat. Working in a similar way to a combi boiler, there is absolutely ZERO water storage within the unit itself. The chance of a leak is almost non-existent.
You simply heat the battery once to get started and hot water is available in less than an hour. The thermal storage material stores heat, not energy, and as cold water runs through the highly efficient and robust heat exchanger, it becomes hot within seconds and subsequent warm water is fed to your appliances in less than a minute.
Our Aquafficient can store four times more energy than a domestic water cylinder in a unit half the physical size.
Not only does the Aquafficient give you a much more efficient solution when it comes to heating the water, it also saves huge amounts of physical space.
An Aquafficient unit, which provides 150L of hot water, is only HALF the height of an average 150L cylinder. If you have ever wanted to utilise that wasted space in your airing cupboard, now is your opportunity with this ideal replacement for other hot water systems.
Compatible with Solar PV and other types of renewable electricity sources, the Aquafficient is the way forward when it comes to saving the environment and improving your carbon footprint.
Based on recent testing, the thermal storage material within the Aquafficient has a life span of over 40,000 cycles before you start to notice any drop in efficiency. In layman’s terms, it can last for over 50 years without you EVER having to service, maintain or replace the thermal store or its contents. Even after the 50 years are up, all it takes is a glass of water to be added to the storage material to recharge it back to full health.
