Heat Transfer Solutions
Leading the Way with Total Heat Recovery Chillers
Heat is a form of energy. After it’s been created or generated, it doesn’t always need to be rejected. Creating or generating heat energy costs money. And continually creating more and more heat energy as it’s needed can lead to unnecessary costs and unnecessarily larger carbon footprints. Efficient and practical methods of recovering heat energy are now available.
Transferring heat energy is much easier and far more efficient than creating it. And the transfer of heat energy that has already been generated can occur at a far lower cost. Heat energy can be captured at one location and put to good use in a different location. Heat energy gathered by HVAC and refrigeration systems that would normally be rejected outdoors can be used for such purposes as domestic water heating, VAV space reheat, dehumidification reheat, ventilation air preheat and other innovative applications. The Heat Transfer Team at American Geothermal® has the experience and technical know-how to realize this potential and bring it to life in your building. Our CHILLSTACK model THRC heat recovery chiller has been designed and engineered for the sole purpose of efficiently transferring heat energy from one location to another.
CHILLSTACK technology is what enables the delivery of our heat transfer solutions. 100% of the heat energy recovered is transferred and made available for use in your application. In some HVAC applications where both water chillers and water boilers are utilized, the addition of a heat recovery chiller has proven to reduce fuel costs by over 43%. The addition of a heat recovery chiller can increase the overall efficiency of a building’s HVAC system. This is because a heat recovery chiller simultaneously benefits a building’s heating system as well as its cooling system. The result is a higher combined system COP (coefficient of performance) than for each system alone.
Your building is far more than simply a financial asset or just an entry on a ledger. It’s occupied by human assets that need healthy and comfortable environments in which to work or learn. Now you have an opportunity to do something for them that pays you at the same time. Consult the engineers and technicians at American Geothermal to investigate whether an application exists for a Total Heat Recovery Chiller in your facility.
