Mira Showers has launched the Mira HeatCapture, which has been developed to provide developers the opportunity to offer a sustainable and efficient wastewater heat recovery system (WWHRS) to developments.
The new product utilises heat from the bathroom wastewater to increase the efficiency of a domestic heating system. This results in the boiler applying less energy to heat water, as the required heat rise has been reduced.
With hot water demand being added to the Standard Assessment Procedure (SAP) regulations for 2025, Mira’s HeatCapture whas been introduced to help specifiers and new property developers ensure new building projects are in line with these regulations from the onset. The company believes the new HeatCapture product will increase the overall hot water efficiency of a new home by up to 10%.
Mira HeatCapture is designed with a double wall stainless steel heat exchanger. The ridged stainless-steel core ensures water exiting the shower waste or bath clings to the side of the tube to transfer its heat to the cool incoming mains. Conforming to EN1717 the steel heat exchanger is designed for new build applications.
The unit has been tested and certified by WRAS, KIWA, BRE as well as being SAP registered.
