The Blue: for a lower electric bill

A traditional shower wastes all energy. This is not sustainable since heating water takes a tremendous amount of energy. Whether you use natural gas of electricity to heat your water, every nine minute shower will require 2,2 kWh* of energy. With the current prices of natural gas and electricity this will cost you about €150 per person per year**.

Living sustainable means avoiding the spillage of natural gas. It is relatively easy to use heat pumps to warm and cool your house, especially the modern and well insulated houses. However, making hot tap water is more difficult.

The Blue made by Hamwells offers a solution to this problem. Our integrated heat recovery module allows you to reduce your hot water usage by a factor of 2,4. Now you can save up to 58% on your energy bill for showering. At the same time you can reduce the size of your hot water infrastructure and reach your energy performance targets.

* In The Netherlands, a shower session take on average 9 minutes. with a standard 7,5 liter per minute shower head at 38°C. This shower session will require 2,2 kWh of energy.
** Depending on the COP (Coefficient of Performance) of the heat pump and how you produce hot tap water.

Reach your energy performance targets

The Blue uses a very efficient heat recovery module. Hamwells optimized this technology, allowing for an efficiency of 58%. The actual Energy Performance Coefficient greatly depends of the type of house the Blue is installed in, but an efficiency of about 0,06 can be achieved. The combination of a substantial improvement in performance and attractive price makes the Blue a unique product.

Optimize the use of your heat pump

In most countries it is obligated to offer hot tap water at at least 55°C. This prevents legionella bacteria problems. In houses where a heat pump is used this is often a problem, the efficiency of the heat pump is greatly reduced at these high temperatures. This increases your energy bill. The Blue offers a simple solution to this problem. The capacity for hot tap water is greatly reduced, allowing you to use a small electric heater to additionally increase the warm water from the heat pump to 60°C. Your heat pump will work very efficient and your energy bill will be small.

If you don’t want to use a heat pump and you use -for example- infrared panels or a wood stove to heat your house, then we offer a different solution. You can use the Blue in combination with our small 50 liter electric water tank. This system will work very efficient, even combined with hot water from solar collectors.

Fast installation

The Blue is delivered as a complete system. All technical components are mounted on a single frame that can easily be placed by a single person. Once the drain including the special Hamwells Smart-Siphon™ is placed and all hoses are connected, the frame can be finished with a front wall. The Blue has a tempered glass front panel that doubles as a maintenance panel.
