FAQs

• Why should I consider Heat Recovery to make hot water?

Many homeowners, or business owners are already paying to have a climate control system in their house or a walk-in refrigeration system at their business and additionally paying to heat their water for laundry, showers, dishwashing, etc. Hot water heating can be 40% of your annual heating costs. Why pay twice?

The Enviro-Pak needs to be connected to a refrigeration system. It also connects to the water heater. The hot refrigerant gas from the AC heats the cool water from the water tank.

Another side effect of the Enviro-Pak is that it can improve the efficiency and life of your air conditioner or refrigeration system. The compressor doesn't have to work as hard, draws less power, and the work load is reduced by up to 3 SEER. As a result, it runs more efficiently and can save you up to 15% on cooling costs.
