Building control guides feature the wonderfully simple Showersave

We are delighted to partner with  Southern, Brent, Devon and Ashford Building Control departments to feature the wonderfully simple Showersave  in publications sent to all planning applicants.

By installing Showersave you will recover the energy from the warm waste water flowing down the drain and use it to pre-heat the incoming cold water – simple, effective and highly reliable.

We have >7,000 Showersave systems installed across the UK. The system is in use with most of the UK’s largest house builders.

Recognised in SAP, the system is maintenance free and cost effective. It is installed at the first fix stage using standard plumbing practices and components. Not only will it save money but it will also reduce Co² emissions.

Showersave used to offset 10% renewables targets - replacing PV

Since the recognition of Showersave systems as a renewable technology under the RED II EU Directive (24 December 2018), we are seeing an increased application where there is at least a 10% renewables targets imposed.

Showersave offers many benefits, including:

Developer savings of 63% or >£800 per plot.

Wonderfully simple to install

No maintenance required; no briefing of homeowner required

Will last the life of the dwelling ideal for PRS dwellings

East Anglia project replaces PV with Showersave

The project in East Anglia required 16kWp of Photovoltaics on a small % of the plots on the development, needing to produce an average of 600kWh of energy per plot to offset the 10% requirement.

Total cost installed on those houses within the development = £26,000

By installing Showersave QB1-21C on every house, the development has saved a total of £16,550, generating the 10% renewable requirement.

Showersave returns impressive results in IES

With the introduction of waste water heat recovery systems into SBEM at the end of last year and the recent incorporation of this into the key software packages used by leading consultants, we thought we would see what this meant in reality.

We took a 95 bed hotel, currently under construction in SE England, and inserted Showersave WWHR systems into the mix using the IES software.

The results saw Impressive improvements on the primary energy demand.  Looking at two scenarios; firstly our Showersave MultiVert plant room system; secondly we have used individual Showersave QB1-21D’s each supporting 2 x back to back shower rooms.

Waste water heat recovery
IES Analysis of 95 bed hotel

The Showersave MultiVert system is applied using the SBEM default % efficiency of 35%; the second scenario assumes a 54% efficiency as per the products characteristics database in SAP 2012.

In terms of cost, you would expect the second scenario to be roughly 2 x the cost of the plant room system.  Although many other costs using more expensive technologies and systems could be negated by using Showersave in this scenario.

Chancellor announces Future Homes Standard

On 13th March Chancellor Philip Hammond spoke of fulfilling the aspirations of the next generation in terms of Housing and the environment.

In his speech the Chancellor announced “a new £3 billion Affordable Homes Guarantee scheme, to support delivery of around 30,000 affordable homes”. This will come as welcome news to those waiting to take their first step on the property ladder.

The Chancellor continued, with the announcement of “a Future Homes Standard, mandating the end of fossil-fuel heating systems in all new houses from 2025, aimed at “delivering lower carbon – and lower fuel bills too”.

The Future Homes Standard offers exciting opportunities for energy efficiency systems such as the Showersave. Showersave will reduce the demand for energy, specifically domestic hot water, as a result of recovering the energy we throw down the drain while showering.

Showersave first introduced the concept of waste water heat recovery to the UK market more than ten years ago and with the Government’s focus on delivering lower carbon and lower fuel bills made clear today, our ambitious vision to have Showersave installed in every new build by 2020, may soon start becoming a reality.

Showersave has become a talking point with Consulting Engineers

Since the introduction of Waste water heat recovery into SBEM on 3rd October 2018, Showersave MultiVert has become a talking point with many Consulting Engineers throughout the UK.

This highly anticipated addition to SBEM has unveiled an array of opportunities for consultants to deliver cost effective designs for their clients.

Showersave MultiVert recovers excess heat energy from waste water, which would otherwise be lost down the drain. This energy is then used to pre-heat incoming cold water, a wonderfully simple, yet highly effective addition to any non-residential building.

In buildings with multiple showers this saving can be significant and the benefits to a BREEAM assessment can be considerable allowing designers to offset more costly technologies.

Having worked with many of the UK’s leading house builders for more than ten years, we are delighted to finally have our MultiVert system recognised in SBEM.

Showersave is the only UK Company offering both residential and commercial scale WWHR applications
