Heating/Piping/Air Conditioning Engineering;Jan2009, Vol. 81 Issue 1, p28
The article discusses ways of recovering heat from chilled-water systems focusing on the capture of heat for useful application. The process, known as heat recovery, offers a decreased energy consumption, reduced greenhouse-gas emissions and more points to Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification. The heat from such system can be used to generate hot water and this hot water can be used to heat the building, to heat service water or industrial process.
