Heat is generated from cooling machinery, manufacturing processes, refrigeration installations, air-conditioning systems, and other industrial or commercial processes but the heat generated is hardly ever reused or recovered and stored. Recovering this heat is becoming more and more common practice due to today's ever-rising energy costs. This precious by-product called waste heat can often be easily harnessed and reused by the same business in a number of ways, applications such as heating water for use in lavatories and hand washing basins, heating premises, heating air for the curing of materials, and used in conjunction with dehumidifying equipment is another example. In some cases, industrial waste heat is even used to heat entire blocks of units in suburbs throughout the world. Smaller projects can be easily accomplished also. 


Example: A General storage cool room installation. E.g Room size 5m x 5m x 2.5 m. 98550kWh heat recovery potential in five years. A fan will run and use 0,070 kW/h to remove excess heat when heating of air or water is reached. E.g. With 100 % heat recovery used.
