CircoSense was conceptualised to reduce amount of energy currently wasted in secondary return hot water systems, which are installed in commercial buildings:
- Leisure Centre
- Care Homes
- Office Buildings
- Shopping Centres
HOW CURRENT SECONDARY RETURN WATER SYSTEMS OPERATE
In secondary return systems, hot water is circulated around the system to save long waiting times at outlet.
Without the CircoSense device:
- Pumps are constantly running unnecessarily
- Boilers are fired more often than required
- Results in significant levels of wasted fuel and high energy bills
- Leads to high carbon emissions
HOW CIRCOSENSE SAVES MONEY AND THE ENVIRONMENT
CircoSense switches on your circulation pump only when required in two overlapping operating modes:
- Random request
- Look-ahead circulation
CircoSense keeps “learning” constantly and continuously adjusts the look-ahead running times to the actual tapping times. If particular habits are abandoned, CircoSense of course “forgets” them again, too.
This means that CircoSense reduces energy consumptions in secondary return hot water systems by preventing the circulation of water at times of no demand, reducing energy costs of heating the hot water and lower carbon emissions.
In fact, if CircoSense was installed in just 75% of primary schools across the UK, this would be the equivalent of taking 320,000 cars off the road!
