Are you looking for ways to reduce your energy bills and save money? If yes, then installing a heat recovery system could be a great way to do that. In this article, we’ll explain how to calculate the energy savings from a heat recovery system and the benefits of having one installed in your home.
First of all, what is a heat recovery system? This is a type of system which takes the excess heat produced by your heating or cooling unit and uses it to help warm or cool your home. This not only reduces the amount of energy you need to use, but also helps keep costs down.
So how do you calculate the energy savings from a heat recovery system? It’s actually quite simple. Start by calculating the total energy consumption in your home – this will include both heating and cooling. Then subtract the amount of energy saved by using the heat recovery system – this should be easy enough if you know what type of unit you have installed (e.g., air-source or ground-source). The difference between these two figures is the amount of energy saved.
For example, let’s say that your total energy consumption for heating and cooling was 2,000 kWh/year and with a heat recovery system installed it was reduced to 1,500 kWh/year. That means that you would be saving 500 kWh/year (2,000 – 1,500 = 500). This could equate to around $150 in savings per year (depending on where you live) – so it’s definitely worth considering!
Now let’s talk about some of the benefits of installing a heat recovery system in your home:
• It can help reduce your overall energy consumption – as we’ve seen above, this can result in substantial savings on your energy bills;
• It can also help improve air quality inside your home as it helps circulate fresh air;
• It can help reduce noise pollution too;
• And finally, it can help make sure that no excess cold or hot air escapes from inside your home due to inefficient insulation.
If all these benefits sound good to you then why not get a professional design and installation service such as Euroheat Australia?
