AltSource Tank with back-up: The perfect complement to renewable energy
The AltSource Tank with back-up is unique in that is designed as a perfect complement to renewable energy systems. It is a great match with our ATW Air-to-Water airsource heat pump system. It automatically provides assistance to the ATW system during extreme cold winter days. In warmer temperatures this tank serves as a well-insulated storage tank.
The AltSource Tank with back-up has 4 dedicated ports: 1″ (50 Gallon model) or 1 1/4″ (70 Gallon model). Two ports for Supply and Return connection to the renewable energy system and two ports for Supply and Return to the house heating distribution system.
The tank has its own control system with use of outdoor sensor via its UltraSmartTM Controller. The ATW controls seamlessly integrate with the AltSource controls, allowing for the ATW to control the heating elements of the AltSource Tank with back-up.
