System 2000

System20001

Why are AFUE ratings off by up to 30% or more when evaluating home heating systems?

A new factor called idle loss, identified by a U.S. Department of Energy national laboratory can now be used to more accurately predict fuel usage when combined with AFUE.

Unlike conventional boilers, System 2000 is activated only when you need heat or hot water. After heat and hot water needs are satisfied, System 2000 runs a Hybrid Energy Recovery® cycle that puts nearly every ounce of heat left in the boiler to work for you. System 2000 remains cold when there is no heat needed, which keeps fuel dollars from being wasted. The combination of Hybrid Energy Recovery, the System 2000 low mass boiler, and hot water integration nearly eliminate idle loss and deliver top rated efficiency and performance.

In addition to savings, you'll enjoy nearly endless hot showers and whisper quiet operation — now that's efficiency!

How it Works

System 2000 from Energy Kinetics is the first fully integrated heat and hot water system on the market. Unlike conventional boilers, System 2000 is activated only when you need heat or hot water. After heat and hot water needs are satisfied, System 2000 runs a Hybrid Energy Recovery® cycle that puts nearly every ounce of heat left in the boiler to work for you.

System 2000 remains cold when there is no heat needed, which keeps fuel dollars from being wasted.

Stage #1: System 2000 Sits Cold

system2000-HowItWorks-Stage1

No call for heat or hot water, all of home's heating zones are currently satisfied.

System 2000 sits idle at near room temperature awaiting instructions from the Digital Energy Manager.

No energy is being expended to keep the boiler heated. Hot water in the heavily insulated storage tank is ready for immediate use.

Stage #2: Boiler Pre-Heat

system2000-HowItWorks-Stage2

A living area in the home is below the thermostat setting, resulting in an initial call for heat.

The Digital Energy Manager interprets thermostat calls and begins pre-heating the boiler.

With water circulating in the boiler, System 2000 reaches operating temperature in less than ninety seconds.

Stage #3: System Heating

system2000-HowItWorks-Stage3

System 2000 has generated heat within the boiler.

The zone calling activates, quickly heating the living area to the desired temperature.

Stage #4: Hybrid Energy Recovery®

system2000 HowItWorks Stage4

The thermostat in the living area has been satisfied.

The Digital Energy Manager anticipates the end of the heat call and turns the burner off. It continues to circulate water from the boiler through the last active zone until the boiler is cool and the room temperature is gently heated at the desired temperature. This improves home comfort and extends the time until the next call for heat-two great benefits in comfort and energy savings. System 2000 then sits idle waiting for the next call for heat.

This unique combination of the Digital Energy Manager and low-mass boiler is a significant contributor to System 2000's extraordinary annual efficiency.
