Rheem hot water system

Rheem Hiline

The Rheem Hiline series is a fantastic hot water heating option for warmer tropical climates such as Queensland. This is because it has no frost protection included, so southern states with colder winters would not be recommended for this hot water unit. However the premier range of Hiline solar hot water heaters does have frost protection for colder climates. There are two separate ranges of Rheem Hiline hot water systems, each with their own individual selection of models within. The basic range, the Rheem Hiline has four models available whilst the Rheem Hiline Premiere has added features and 3 separate models.

Rheem Hiline Solar Hot Water Range

The Rheem Hiline series has four models, these are…
– 52L180
– 52L300
– 52S160
– 52S300

The main difference between these models is the tank size, with the 160 and 180 being ideal for 1-2 people and the 300 being ideal for up to 5 people. All models use a thermosiphon method to heat water. This means that water is stored in tubes that are exposed to direct sunlight in order to heat the water. However, in periods of little sun light, the water can be heated by an electric or gas powered booster.

This is where the other big difference in these models comes into play. The ’L’ models do not come standard with a booster system, however, they do give you a choice between a gas or electric boosting system to attach to it. Meanwhile the ‘S’ series comes standard with an electric booster system.

Overall, the Rheem Hiline series is a great option for warmer, tropical climates with good quality drinking water.

Rheem Hiline Premier Range

The Rheem Hiline Premier range is fundamentally the same as its predecessor, however, it does come standard with frost protection, making it suitable for any climate in Australia. There are 3 different models…- 52C300- 52H180- 52H300Similar to the standard range of Hiline solar hot water systems, the premier range differ mainly in the size of the units’ tanks and the fact that some come with boosters attached and some don’t.

The C300 will not come with any booster, but does then give you the choice between gas or electric, while the ‘H’ series will come with electric boosters included, as well as longer warranties of 7 years as opposed to 5 years on the ‘C’ model.
