When it comes to reducing energy costs, a waste heat hot water system is one of the best investments you can make. Not only does it help to reduce energy bills, but it can also increase the value of your home and enhance your comfort levels. But how long does it take to recoup the costs of installing a system like this?
The answer depends on several factors, including the size of system you install and how well it’s installed. Generally speaking, though, you should expect to recoup your costs in energy savings within two to three years. This is based on an average household using around 20 megawatt-hours (MWh) of energy per year and a typical waste heat hot water system installation costing around $6,000.
But when you look at the bigger picture, these systems are capable of delivering even greater savings over time. Through careful design and installation, such systems can reduce overall heating and cooling costs by up to 50%. This means that if you spend $6,000 on a system today, you could save up to $10,000 in energy bills over an eight-year period – more than double your original investment!
Of course, these savings will vary from house to house depending on factors such as insulation levels and size of family. Fortunately there are ways to estimate the potential savings for your home before you commit to any purchase or installation. One great example is Euroheat Australia’s free Energy Assessment service which uses sophisticated software models to estimate what kind of cost reductions are achievable through installing a waste heat hot water system in your home.
The benefits don’t stop there either – by installing a waste heat hot water system you’ll be able to enjoy improved comfort levels throughout your home throughout the year without having to worry about rising energy bills. This is because these systems use natural heat sources such as hot air or exhaust gases from other appliances like gas cookers or boilers in order to generate heat for domestic use – meaning they are both efficient and cost-effective solutions for domestic heating needs.
When it comes time for installation though, it pays dividends for homeowners in Australia to go with experienced professionals like Euroheat Australia who have been designing and constructing hydronic heating & cooling systems since 1990 – that’s 30 years of experience! Their team has worked with hundreds of clients around Perth – from residential homes through large commercial buildings – so they understand what needs doing in order ensure that any project runs smoothly from start-to-finish while delivering maximum efficiency gains.
So if you’re looking for an efficient way of reducing energy costs while improving comfort levels at home then investing in a waste heat hot water system is certainly worth considering – especially when combined with Euroheat Australia’s professional design and installation services!
