The Adveco 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 pre-sized to help reduce both a building’s energy consumption and operational costs across its lifetime.
This prefabricated all-electric water heating system brings together Adveco’s FPi32-9 Air Source Heat Pump (ASHP), 200L GLC indirect preheat tank and 200L GLE direct electric water heater to provide reliable high-temperature water in a convenient, packaged system housed in a compact GRP housing.
Sized to meet the typical needs of a larger facility and can supply 314 l/peak hour. Based on a 12-hour daily operation and one peak hour, this equates to 1370 litres of hot water per day. Adveco’s Packaged E-Hot Water System makes particular use of the FPi32-9 ASHP to provide the system preheat from 10°C to 50°C, supplying 70% of the DHW load. Offsetting this energy demand 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.
The GLE also has an additional 6kW immersion heater to provide backup in case of failure of the lead heat source for sites where hot water is business-critical. The Adveco designed control system monitors the heat sources, and in the case of failure, it can automatically activate the backup system. 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.
Adveco’s Packaged e-Hot Water System is ideal for a wide range of commercial properties with regular hot water demands such as restaurants and boutique hotels, offices, schools, and light industry. The system is also perfect for both new builds or refurbishment where space is at a premium.
