relax…IT’S A Rheem®

Hot water free from the sun
Free & Natural. It’s the way you’ve always wanted to shower. With a Rheem solar hot water system it’s more than just a feeling. It’s a fact of life, and it’s yours to enjoy everyday.

Rheem solar slim solar panels on your roof will do it. As the water circulates, the sun heats it naturally so you get luxurious hot water heated free from the sun. On tap. Everyday. Now that’s what you call Free & Natural! Hot water which saves on energy, saves on water heating costs and helps save the environment too. With a Rheem Solar hot water system you get it all. And it’s all Free & Natural. Now isn’t that the way you’ve always wanted to shower!

Save In Three Ways

1. Save on Energy
By using the sun’s free energy you can reduce your hot water energy consumption by 50% to 90%* depending on where you live. That’s up to 90%* less gas or electricity which needs to be produced.

2. Save on water heating costs
Reducing your energy usage will give you real dollar savings every day. An average home can expect to save money off its energy bills year after year. And with the way energy costs are increasing around the world, the savings could be even greater in the future.

3. Save the enviroment
Not only will you make big savings on your energy costs, using the sun’s free energy is great for the environment. A family of four with a Solahart water heater can save up to 3 or 4 tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions compared to a conventional electric water heater. That’s the same as taking a small car off the road, so you can imagine the benefits for our future generations and the future of the planet.
