Hot water and heating specialist Adveco, offers educational facilities with large hot water demands but space limitations a complete, highly-efficient, low carbon resolution with its Packaged e-Hot Water System.
This prefabricated all-electric water heating system brings together Adveco’s FPi-9 Air Source Heat Pump (ASHP), an Adveco 200L GLC indirect preheat tank, and Adveco 200L GLE direct electric water heater to provide reliable high-temperature water in a convenient, packaged system housed in a compact GRP housing.
Bill Sinclair, technical director, Adveco says, “The Packaged e-Hot Water System leverages all the advantages of off-site construction to provide a standardised, resilient, environmentally friendly, low carbon, hot water system that helps reduce both a school building’s energy consumption and operational costs across its lifetime.”
Adveco’s Packaged e-Hot Water System is ideal for new build projects or refurbishment where space is at a premium. The system makes particular use of the FPi-9 ASHP to provide the system preheat from 10°C to 50°C, supplying 70% of the DHW load.
Offsetting 70% of the energy requirement means the Packaged e-Hot Water System can demonstrate a 47% reduction in energy demands and CO² emissions for the same output of 500,000 litres of hot water each year when compared with a similar direct electric-only system. The reduced energy demand also means operational savings can be added to the capital savings secured during the design, supply, and installation phases.
A completely new specification that lowers the heat intensity, without detrimental effect to the demands for hot water, means the Packaged e-Hot Water System is also more resistant to scale, reducing maintenance demands. Should the lead heat source ever fail, the system incorporates an additional emergency backup 6kW immersion heater to provide resilience and surety of hot water.
