In the busy modern 'working family' household up to 90% of hot water consumption is for showering. Shower-Save is a very simple grey water heat recovery system which can reclaim over 60% of the heat that would normally be lost down the drain.
All shower-save products use the simple principle of heat exchange.
The cold mains water supply and warm waste shower water both flow into the heat exchanger which has a double-wall separation between sewage and drinking water.
Heat exchange occurs across this conductive copper wall and cold mains water going to the water heater and shower mixer tap will be preheated.Read More
We're delighted to report that sales of Shower-Save in Europe have now reached 50,000, with over 5,000 of these in the UK and Ireland.
In the UK the two most commonly specified non-renewables are waste water heat recovery systems (WWHRS) and flue gas heat recovery systems (FGHRS) which are both used with combi boilers, however, WWHRS can also be used with a hot water cylinder. WWHRS works by recycling the heat from waste water from a bath or shower to preheat cold water via a heat exchanger before it enters the boiler. Both of these systems can make significant improvements to your SAP calculation which can be the difference between a pass or fail. They are also much cheaper to install than solar PV or solar hot water systems making them a preferred route to compliance for clients in many cases.
The Showersave RV3 remains one of the most cost effective solutions to achieve the new demands of Part L 2013, offers low CAPEX and a hugely competitive £ per point in SAP 2012.
No wonder Shower-Save Sales have now reached 50,000!
