ENCON ® Heat Recovery Unit
Encon Heat Recovery Unit
Utility companies claim 22% to 30% of the energy consumed by a family of 4 is used to heat water. An ENCON installation can supply most of this energy during the air conditioning months and, for heat pump owners, it will reduce the energy used for hot water during the heating months also. This can amount to $10.00 per person - per month - depending on energy cost and hot water usage. These savings can equal a 22% to 50% tax free return to your ENCON investment. Compare to other investment returns. You're paying the utility company now, why not pay yourself instead!
ENCON Saves In Other Ways Too ...
Air-conditioner last longer because the compressor operates against a lower pressure.
Air-conditioner runs less and gets the same cooling results.
These increased efficiencies of the air conditioner can result in air-conditioning savings of 5% to 10% when the ENCON is operating. It can also extend the life of the hot water heater elements since they will be used a shorter time.
Here's How ENCON Works to Save You Money!
Your air conditioner or heat pump removes heat from your house and transfers it by refrigerant to a unit outside your home, or to water in the case of a water cooled air conditioner. A compressor in your unit adds heat as it builds up the pressure of the refrigerant. The result is hot refrigerant (190° - 215°) which must be cooled by the fan in your outdoor unit. This is wasted heat energy to heat your water. This water can be heated up to FREE without using the hot water heater except for storage.
During the months your air conditioner is on it will supply 6 to 9 gallons of hot water - per hour - for each ton of air conditioning! A 3-ton system would supply 18 to 27 gallons each hour. Operated 8 to 10 hours per day, it would produce 144 to 270 gallons of hot water - must more than the average family uses each day.
Now ...isn't that a smart way to save money?
