Passively Recovering Waste Heat Energy With Every Shower
WWHRS for Passive Houses
What is Passive House
Passive house is a rigorous but voluntary standard for energy efficiency in a building, reducing its ecological footprint. It aims is to create ultra-low energy buildings that require little to no energy for space heating or cooling.
A passive designed building is not separate to the architectural design and design of a building but a process that is integrated with the architectural design. Typically, a passive design for a building applies predominately to new builds.
WWHRS in a Passive Design
Incorporating a waste water heat recovery system (WWHRS) into a passive design is an extremely good and low-cost option to assist with the reduction of energy demand within a building.
As hot water is one of the greatest building energy demands, using a highly efficient Recoup WWHRS alongside efficient and ecologically sound energy generation methods will effectively assists a building to demand less energy to create hot water.
