Waste Water Heat Recovery for Showers
Introducing Recoup Waste Water Heat Recovery for Showers (WWHRS)
Recoup are UK market leaders and specialists for Waste Water Heat Recovery (WWHRS). This 2-minute introduction provides the main information on what WWHRS is, the reason for using it, and how it works.
WWHRS is a simple heat recovery device that recycles the heat energy from waste shower water. It then uses it to preheat mains cold water and reuses it in the system. As a result, reducing the energy required per shower use by up to 55%. The energy that would normally go down the drain becomes reused. This reduces hot water requirements per shower use; lowers CO2 emissions and reduces household energy bills.
Additionally, WWHRS is a cost-effective compliance measure for housebuilders and developers looking to meet or exceed the new Part L building regulations. The high efficiency of Recoup products produce more SAP points, and therefore better value for new-build developers, the homeowner, and the environment.
