How Does The System 2000 Work?

System 2000 and 90+ Resolute from Energy Kinetics are the first fully integrated heat and hot water systems on the market. Unlike conventional boilers, System 2000 is activated only when you need heat or hot water. After heat and hot water needs are satisfied, System 2000 runs a Hybrid Energy Recovery® cycle that puts nearly every ounce of heat left in the boiler to work for you.

Stage #1: System 2000 Sits Cold


No call for heat or hot water, all of home’s heating zones are currently satisfied.
System 2000 sits idle at near room temperature awaiting instructions from the Digital Energy Manager.
No energy is being expended to keep the boiler heated. Hot water in the heavily insulated storage tank is ready for immediate use.

Stage #2: Boiler Pre-Heat

A living area in the home is below the thermostat setting, resulting in an initial call for heat.
The Digital Energy Manager interprets thermostat calls and begins pre-heating the boiler.
With water circulating in the boiler, System 2000 reaches operating temperature in less than ninety seconds.

Stage #3: System Heating


System 2000 has generated heat within the boiler.
The zone calling activates, quickly heating the living area to the desired temperature.

Stage #4: Hybrid Energy Recovery® or Thermal Purge


The Digital Energy Manager anticipates the end of the heat call and turns the burner off. It continues to circulate water from the boiler through the last active zone until the boiler is cool and the room temperature is gently heated at the desired temperature. This improves home comfort and extends the time until the next call for heat-two great benefits in comfort and energy savings. System 2000 then sits idle waiting for the next call for heat.

This unique combination of the Digital Energy Manager and low-mass boiler is a significant contributor to the extraordinary annual efficiency of all Energy Kinetics’ heating systems.
