Star Refrigeration's new Envitherm is an environmentally-conscious dualpurpose heat pump that generates hot and chilled water simultaneously. It provides air conditioning in largescale buildings that also have a high
It provides air conditioning in largescale buildings that also have a high demand for heating and hot water.
The pre-assembled unit generates chilled water for air conditioning systems, while simultaneously producing hot water at temperatures to 70Â°C for showers and taps.
Dave Pearson, director of innovation, says: "Envitherm essentially delivers 'free' hot water with zero carbon emissions, as water is heated as a by-product of the water/glycol chilling process.When configured to continuously deliver hot water, the initial cost of Envitherm will be recovered in less than 3 years.
