Enerworks Product Lines

Whether your application is residential, commercial or industrial, Enerworks can offer an appropriately-sized, integrated solar water heating solution that has been designed, top to bottom, specifically for your needs. Enerworks offers the Spectrum line of solar water heating products, suitable for applications in all climates, as well as the Focus line of direct, water-based systems designed for use where temperatures rarely fall below freezing.

The Enerworks HeatSafe Collector, suitable for residential and commercial applications, features patented overheat-protection, countering the stagnation issue that plagued the solar water heating industry in its early days. The only flat-plate collector with such a feature, this overheat protection ensures that excess heat is safely vented when hot water usage is low or non-existent, such as when homeowners are on vacation.

Residential Product Lines back to top

Our residential systems are the first systems to meet CSA international standards. Containing several unique and patented features, Enerworks solar systems complement existing electric, natural gas, propane, oil or on-demand water heating systems and provide clean energy and a real reduction in energy costs. Next to space heating and cooling, water heating is the single largest demand on home energy consumption.

The Enerworks Spectrum Line of Systems and Solutions

Designed for use in all climates, conditions and geographies, the freeze-protected Spectrum residential and commercial water heating systems have been installed from Alaska to Florida, Arizona to Maine. Top to bottom, these residential, commercial and industrial solutions are designed and optimized to efficiently meet the specific needs of the application.

The Enerworks Spectrum Pre-Heat System

Used in residential and small commercial applications, the Enerworks Spectrum Pre-Heat System is a reliable, year-round

The Spectrum Pre-Heat System includes one to four attractive Enerworks HeatSafe Collectors which resemble skylights and can be roof-, wall- or rack-mounted to ensure optimal solar energy capture. The freeze-protected fluid in the collectors channels the heat to the Enerworks Energy Pack, attached to the solar storage tank, typically located in your utility room. Within the Energy Pack, the heat is transferred to your water, ready to meet your hot water needs. The Enerworks Spectrum Pre-Heat System can also be configured to provide secondary applications such as pool heating and space heating.solution, offsetting greenhouse gas emissions and saving money on your energy bill. The Spectrum Pre-Heat System uses free solar energy to heat water, becoming your primary source of hot water. If necessary, your existing water heater heats the water during periods of low solar radiation or at night, so you are never without hot water.

The Enerworks Spectrum Single Tank System

Used in residential and small commercial applications, the Enerworks Spectrum Single Tank System is the perfect solution where floor space is at a premium. The Spectrum Single Tank System is reliable year-round and comes with one or two Enerworks HeatSafe collectors which capture the free solar energy to heat your water. This hot water is stored in a single tank which combines solar storage and electric auxiliary in one space-saving unit. The electric auxiliary is required only when the available solar energy is not sufficient to meet the demand, again ensuring that you are never without hot water.

The Enerworks Focus Line of Systems and Solutions

Specially designed for use in tropical climates where temperatures rarely fall below freezing – and, when they do, not below 27 ˚F (-3 ˚C) – these water-based solutions offer a direct and efficient way to heat your water. Rather than a freeze-protected fluid, potable water runs through the roof-, rack- or wall-mounted collectors, directly absorbing heat from the sun.

The Enerworks Focus Pre-Heat System

Used in residential applications, the Enerworks Focus Pre-Heat System is a reliable, year-round solution specially designed for use in tropical climates. The Focus Pre-Heat System uses free solar energy to heat your water, offsetting greenhouse gas emissions, saving money on your energy bill and becoming your primary source of hot water. If necessary, your existing water heater heats the water during periods of low solar radiation or at night, so you are never without hot water.

The Focus Pre-Heat System gathers energy from the sun through one or two Enerworks HeatSafe Collectors, which resemble skylights. Potable water runs directly through these collectors, oriented during installation to ensure maximize solar energy capture. This water will then flow through the tank-mounted Enerworks Energy Pack  into the solar storage tank where it is ready to meet your hot water needs.  The Enerworks Focus Pre-Heat System can also be configured to provide secondary applications such as pool heating and space heating.

The Focus Single Tank System is reliable year-round and comes with one or two Enerworks HeatSafe Collectors which capture the free solar energy to heat your water. Potable water is heated directly while running through the HeatSafe Collectors, then channeled through the Enerworks Energy Pack and stored in a single tank which combines solar storage and electric auxiliary in one space-saving unit. The electric auxiliary is required only when the available solar energy is not sufficient to meet the demand, again ensuring that you are never without hot water.

Vacuum Tube Collector

Enerworks uses NARVA vacuum tubes made in Germany. Due to NARVA’s 40-years of experience in the field of glass manufacturing and processing, their extensive knowledge about coating and vacuum processes, as well as experience in the field of glassmetal-compounds, they have been able to realize the production and process for creating top quality products very quickly.

The patented glassmetal-compound between the tubes’ sheathing and absorber makes the product highly robust and durable.

Through the coating with nanoparticles, the transparency of the glass is considerably improved and with that, the effectiveness of the tubes. The certified production in Brand-Erbisdorf includes all the essential production stages and ensures the highest quality possible.

The tube is made at the company’s own glass factory; the prefabrication manufactures the copper absorber units. The assembly of both parts for the finished product takes place at their state of the art manufacturing plant which was put into operation in 2007.

The Enerworks Solar Energy Terminal
AAA081-R1-11

For larger commercial and industrial applications, Enerworks has engineered the Enerworks Solar Energy Terminal, which integrates the key components of a solar thermal system. An integrated pump, heat exchanger and an intelligent control system are all contained in a compact housing. This pre-engineered unit eliminates the need to procure and assemble components from a variety of sources and simplifies the installation. Pre-assembled and factory-tested, the Solar Energy Terminal contains multi-speed pumps and a pre-programmed controller which enables internet communication and set-point customization for each installation, optimizing performance for the specific site conditions and ensuring cost-effective operation.
