The Recoh-vert is a revolutionary waste water heat-recovery system – and this year’s winner of the Selector DesignBuild Best New Product Award, which was presented at the 2013 DesignBuild exhibition.
The system can reclaim up to 60% of the heat from grey water that would normally be lost down the drain during a shower, and has a short payback time.
In the modern family home, up to 90% of the hot water consumed is for showering. The heat recovery system is simple. The waste water from the shower or any appliance that needs a constant supply of hot water runs through a copper heat exchanger, and the heat from the waste water transfers to the clean, fresh water on it’s way to the hot water heater. As a result, this pre-heating process greatly reduces the energy used by the hot water heater during normal operation.
The single Recoh-vert can be installed in residential homes and Recoh-multivert is suitable for commercial applications such as gyms and hotels.
