It is a passive energy saving element with a static heat recovery unit, without moving elements, it does not need maintenance and it has the same useful life as the building. Quite simply, it is a system or technology that uses the heat from the waste hot water in the shower to increase the temperature of the incoming cold water.
From the first year the house will consume € 152 less energy compared to another without this system.
It is installed as a conventional shower tray, without making holes in the floor, facilitating the use of the shower for people with reduced mobility.
WHAT IS IT
WHERE TO INSTALL
It can be installed in newly built homes and in bathroom renovations and bathtub-shower changes.
Due to its flat design, it is installed as a conventional shower tray, without making holes in the floor, facilitating the use of the shower for people with reduced mobility.
HOW DOES IT WORK
Its installation is like a conventional shower tray with the exception that the cold water pipe of the network is connected to the outlet of the shower tray and the water outlet. The exchanger is located in a lateral channel, outside the area where the user steps, its design allows the manufacture of thin plates with full accessibility for people with reduced mobility.
Thus an important part of the heat that the water that leaves the house has is recovered and transferred to the cold water that we have to heat to shower.
WWHRS system which is short for Waste Water Heat Recovery System.
Passive Shower One® – The Beauty of Saving Energy
HOW MUCH SAVE
Installing the One® shower tray saves energy, money and CO2 emissions into the atmosphere. The saving is tripled, on the one hand it saves energy that we do not consume and therefore it is not necessary to produce it, this energy has a cost of around € 152 per year and finally the saving of emissions of kg of CO2 that we do not emit into the atmosphere . If we consider an energy reform, we will find that the work can be subsidized by the administration.
In this way the investment is recovered at the same time of making it. The second and perhaps the most important is that from the first year the house will consume € 152 less energy compared to another without the efficient shower tray and each year we will earn the equivalent of the money invested in the initial project. With a useful life of 20 years, we will save more than € 3,000 and avoid the emission of 6 tons of Co2 into the atmosphere.
