We particularly liked that Recoup WWHRS is a cost-effective, simple to install ‘fit and forget’ technology that requires no planned maintenance and no end-user interaction.”

Barratt Developments PLC Recoup WWHRS Testimonial

“The Recoup Pipe+HE system is an innovative product that represents a cost-effective way to achieve both SAP and real-time improvements. The system benefits from being a ‘fit and forget’ technology that results in tangible savings in both carbon and energy for our customers, without the need for significant levels of occupant education.”

Carbon Futures Recoup WWHRS Testimonial

“As Energy & Sustainability Consultants working on a considerable number of new-build domestic dwellings, Carbon Futures have recommended the use of Waste Water Heat Recovery Systems (WWHRS) on a high proportion of projects to efficiently meet the requirement to reduce the energy demand for water heating. In Scotland, Aspect Silver Level 3 (Energy for Water Heating) under Section 7 (Sustainability) of the Scottish Building Regulations, requires at least 5% of a dwelling’s annual energy demand for water heating to be from heat recovery and/or renewable sources with little or no associated fuel costs. We have found WWHRS to be a very affordable and efficient means of achieving compliance with this regulation due to its low cost, ease of installation and high efficiency. In SAP 2012, WWHRS such as Recoup’s Pipe+ HE, can achieve a carbon reduction of up to 11% for a typical 3 Bed dwelling, which is significant; especially as WWHRS has the added benefit of being a passive system, requiring no day-to-day interaction from the home owner and requires no planned maintenance.” Andrew Money Director, Carbon Futures

Green Heat Ltd, Recoup WWHRS Testimonial

“We use WWHRS as an option on almost every 10% reduction requirement for local planning conditions. It’s a great technology that’s ultimately hidden from view with low investment and without any moving or mechanical parts or filters to go wrong, replace or maintain!”

K A Watts Plumbing & Heating, Recoup WWHRS Testimonial

“We’ve installed Recoup WWHRS for a number of our house builder clients to help achieve SAP compliance. The Recoup Pipe+ HE is the simplest product to install and also the easiest to purchase as it comes directly from the national merchants. Recoup’s technical knowledge and support have been great, and their toolbox session and technical presentation helped us understand the products, technology, installation, and why WWHRS is being used by housebuilders.”

Richard Hartley
Contracts Manager, KA Watts Plumbing & Heating Ltd

Sursham Tompkins Architectural Services & Project Management, Recoup WWHRS Testimonial

“We have found that the Pipe+ HE product is an easy to specify component which has been especially helpful where there is limited budget for renewables like photovoltaics, or a need for some improvement to counterbalance some loss of performance under SAP when late client changes are implemented. We particularly liked the absence of moving parts, or need for an electrical supply, and recovering energy that would otherwise be wasted seems the best approach to take in accord with ‘fabric first’ principles.”

Build Insight Recoup WWHRS Testimonial

“Not only is this a cost efficient solution for house builders, but the service offered to SAP assessors is second to none. The support and advice given by these guys is superb.

Barratt Developments PLC Recoup WWHRS Testimonial

“The Recoup Pipe+HE is by far the most innovative product within our supply chain, also sitting comfortably from a commercial and customer acceptance perspective. The technology sits squarely within our ‘fit & forget’ ethos which we feel is essential for not just giving CO2 savings in theory, but delivering real benefit in reduced CO2, and reduced bills, for our customers.”
