If your client is interested in sustainability, then a solar thermodynamic hot water system will contribute significantly to making their home energy efficient. The Alternative Energy Company (TAEC) can help you specify the most suitable energy-efficient hot water system to suit the design and household requirements
Usually customers and architects share their plans with TAEC so that they can recommend the best system for the design and household requirements. TAEC often gets involved at concept design phase but it's never too late. When you share the plans with them, they recommend the best system for the design and do detailed equipment location drawings based on the plans. They can send you detailed dimensional information for their systems, as well as equipment location recommendations.
TAEC have all the documentation necessary to support the council consent process and show compliance with G 12/AS2. Their systems are approved to AS/NZS 2712.
Recently TAEC assisted Ben Clegg from Topcat Architecture to specify a system for a client who was interested in energy-efficient hot water for her Kapiti coast rebuild/renovation. His client understood that heating water took the lion’s share of electricity usage and wanted to future proof her home from rising running costs, as well as make a responsible environmental choice.
Ben said, "The team at TAEC were very helpful and provided all the information we needed, from the initial engagement right through to the documents needed for building consent. I would 100% recommend them and their great products!"
