Clever water heater solution for crowded plant room



A Rheem Commercial heat pump was an obvious choice when it came to delivering a highly-efficient hot water supply and enhanced building sustainability to the heritage listed office building at 33 Alfred Street, Sydney.

Built in 1962, the heritage listed CBD icon at 33 Alfred Street, Sydney had its water heating capabilities substantially upgraded in early 2015.



With existing plant room constraints precluding the use of a high-efficiency gas system, a Rheem Commercial heat pump was an obvious choice when it came to delivering a highly-efficient hot water supply and improved degree of building sustainability.

Perfectly suited for base building amenities such as kitchenettes, showers and hand basins, the heat pumps installed were required to meet the hot water needs of approximately 1600 people.




Rheem’s Commercial Sales Manager for NSW and the ACT, Josh Elliott says the highly flexible heat pump system was recommended and sized based on Rheem Commercial’s onsite technical assessment of the plant room.
“The heat pump and tanks are both located in crowded plant rooms with little space and no room for gas flue pipe penetrations,” he explains. “In one case, the plant had to be lifted in by block-and-tackle because the space constraints were so tight. In the other instance, the heat pump plant has computer racking to its left, and large cold water storage tanks to the right.”
