Club benefits from free hot water!

Bob McKness, Club Secretary, Enderby Social ClubEnderby Social Club is pleased that at a time when utility costs are soaring, they have reduced their energy bills by recycling waste heat from their cellar cooler and using it to heat hot water for free!

"Our cellar cooler was getting on a bit, so we decided to replace it with a Qualitair system. When Qualitair's contractor Envtec Services said we could be benefitting from free hot water for the club, I thought they were joking!" says Bob McKness, Club Secretary at Enderby Social Club

Initially sceptical, the club adopted an open mind and was willing to see the HRU put through its paces to see if it could produce enough hot water to meet their needs.

"The start of the football season was an ideal time to start trialling it," says Bob.

ICC UnitThe system produced more than enough hot water to run six showers at the same time and for two muddy teams. The club was so impressed that it asked Envtec and Qualitair to monitor the equipment and verify the savings.

"The proof was in the pudding, says Bob. "We did not use the twin 3kw immersions heaters at any point to provide sufficient hot water; Qualitair's heat recovery system has proven to be a worthy investment".

Qualitair's heat recovery system is available in either 6kW or 10kW units. In addition to providing an energy efficient and environmentally friendly solution for re-using waste heat, it also offers an attractive payback. For example a mid-range cellar cooler operating on average 18 hours per day (calculated using 2012 electricity tariffs) will recover the HRU's purchase and installation costs within two years.

"It no longer makes sense environmentally or commercially to waste resources," says Ron Pamplin, Qualitair Product Manager, adding "whilst this was a new fit, Qualitair's heat recovery unit can easily be retro-fitted."
