With a hot water inlet at 60°C and water mains inlet at 10°C, your 10minutes-long shower would use 45 Liters of 60°C-heated water. As a result of the need of 1.16 Wh of energy to increase the temperature of 1 Liter of water by 1°C and a water mains inlet at 10°C, the water temperature has to be heated to 50°C to obtain a 60°C-water. You also need a 50°C * 1.16Wh/)C/Liter * 45 Liters = 2610Wh energy for a shower, it means your annual consumption for an average 4-member household is 2610Wh * 365 days * 4 people = 3,810kWh of energy, which represents a budget of :
Average electricity cost (2017) : 0,1357€/kWh * 3810kWh = €518
TurboSiphon will exchange up to 30% of hot water inlet by pre-heated water, namely an up to €150 savings per year for a 4-member family. In addition to this direct saving, you will make last your water heater tank lifetime.
TurboSiphon enables a lot of ease in the positioning and does not require any prerequisite in the building design since it has been designed to be connected to the water network under any shower tray.
It can be joined easily with a bathtub system and if necessary, it is possible to connect another watering place.
In the event of height constraints, TurboSiphon can be installed in the basement, in the crawl space or in the suspended ceiling.
