Integral Collector Storage (ICS)
Simple, Durable, and Reliable
The CopperHeart integral collector storage system, or ICS, combines thermal collection and storage in a single unit. The CopperHeart is engineered to meet the international demand for a simple, durable and inexpensive domestic water heating system. The retrofit CopperHeart installation typically serves as a solar preheater to the existing electric or gas water heater. For new construction the backup heater of choice is most often a compatible gas or electric tankless water heater. In non-freeze climates the CopperHeart may be used as the primary water heater. For durability, reliability and simplicity of installation and operation the CopperHeart ICS has no peers.
If properly installed and maintained the CopperHeart ICS can safely be deployed in areas that experience occasional mild freeze conditons. SRCC Rated Freeze Tolerance: 20° F for 18 hours.

CopperHeart SRCC G300 System Ratings
The Solar Rating & Certification Corporation OG-300 systems level rating is an independent assessment of both system reliability and performance. Systems that receive this rating must meet HUD minimum property standards in addition to a rigorous review performed by SRCC staff and design review team. Once the system has passed these quality assurance checks it undergoes a full performance analysis to estimate the actual solar contribution of the system towards an average hot water load. This contribution, as defined by the Solar Energy Factor is listed alongside the different variants of each system type.
CopperHeart Deluxe/2-Way Kit – Use in conjunction with a conventional water heater, or an instantaneous water heater.
Function: When hot water is required, solar heated water is drawn from the unit directly into a conventional or tankless water heater, thus eliminating or reducing electricity or gas usage required for heating water. Hot water is then distributed directly to the points-
of-use. The water heater must remain turned on to provide backup heat as required, and to maintain a ready supply of hot water.
Applications: Well suited for use in tropical, sub-tropical "SunBelt", and temperate type climates where mild-to-hot temperatures exist year round and conventional water heaters are always used - and free hot water is desired or required.
Performance: Hot water output is dependant on available solar radiation. Backup provides constant supply when solar performance is temporarily interrupted by inclement weather.
Control Valve: A manual 2-Way plumbing configuration allows for isolation of the ProgressivTube system for maintenance or winterizing, and is typically adjusted on a seasonal basis only.
Deluxe 2-way Complete System includes:
• CopperHeart Solar Collector Unit
• Mounting Hardware Kit - choose from flush, fixed, or tilt
• Roof Flashing Kit - copper fittings and flashings for pipe-through-
• roof plumbing penetrations
• TwoWayFlo Plumbing Kit - copper fittings, AquaMix anti-scald mixing
• valve, vacuum breaker valve, pressure relief valve, 2 boiler drain
• 2-Way Configuration of 2 2-way ball valves

Benefits of Solar: A properly sized ICS Solar Water Heater system will raise water temperature as high as 140+ degrees.
In addition to heating the water, your hot water reserves can be increased by as much as 50 percent, if the system is combined with a conventional or instantaneous gas or electric heater serving as a backup unit.
Other benefits include increased equity in the home, a 25% return on your investment, plus the BONUS of hot water during power outages!
• Reduce monthly household operating expenses
• Save money without reducing comfort or convenience
• Conserve resources and reduce air pollution
As with all solar water heaters, the total amount of solar contribution to the system is dependent upon the hot water consumption pattern, daily weather conditions, and variable amounts of available sunlight throughout the year.
