Energy efficient showers won’t let your hot water go to waste

Did you know that up to 90% of our domestic hot water usage is spent on showering? Keep in mind that most of this ends up down the drain and it’s not surprising that showers are seen as one of the worst offenders when it comes to wasting energy.

It doesn’t have to be like this. A heat exchange shower system can actually recycle a high percentage of that waste – saving up to 60% of energy and helping to cut your bills in the process.

How heat exchange shower systems work

When a shower is switched on, hot water is drawn from the boiler. In a typical bathroom, this water simply flows down the drain, never to be seen again. It’s a real waste of energy.

Thanks to a heat exchange shower system installed by the Noreus team, this waste water is recovered and used to heat up your cold water mains supply.

We connect an attachment into your drain (don’t worry – our highly efficient and tidy team keeps any disruption to a minimum) before directing the warm waste water through a double wall channel and using the heat energy to warm up the fresh cold water.

This heated water in turn flows back through the shower head. What’s clever is that, because of the double wall channel, the waste water never comes into direct contact with the fresh water supply.

In many cases, the system can be installed with your existing electric shower too. It can also be used alongside a walk-in shower for greater comfort and manageability.

What our customers say

  • We are very pleased with the spray foam insulation system and have noticed big difference in the warmth of the house.

    Mr & Mrs A.A Wilmslow
  • The men worked very hard and did a good job. 10/10 for punctuality and cleanliness of the treatment team.

    Dr J. Stockport
  • .......... and since we only had mains electricity power laid on at the bungalow, our hot water had always cost us a fortune using the immersion heater.  The Solar Thermal system you installed - especially the twin cylinder layout - means that we don't waste any available power and the running costs of the system are minimal. And we have got hot water! Thank you also for installing the battery backup system to get us over power cuts that we get!

Heat exchange shower system FAQs

Won’t the waste water contaminate the cold water supply?

The double wall channel on the heat exchange shower system means that waste water never comes into direct contact with the cold water supply. Instead, the heat energy from the waste water is recycled to warm up the fresh, clean water that runs back through the shower.

Do I need a new shower for the heat exchange shower system?

In many cases, the heat exchange shower system can be used with an existing electric shower and combi boiler but it needs to be able to accommodate a pre-heated water supply.

Can the heat exchange shower system work on a bath?

No because a bath’s hot water is not drained and recycled in the way an energy efficient shower works. However, it can work well in a shower over a bath.
