What you can expect to save on heating costs
The Vortex Energy Saver is an ideal energy saving device to help save on heating costs and prevent corrosion of the heating system. The savings from independent third party testing, monitored systems and feedback from our customers have consistently demonstrated typical savings between 20-30%. In addition to direct energy savings, the Vortex will also reduce maintenance and extend the life of the heating system.
What you can expect to save on heating costs will vary from property to property primarily due to different heating systems having different levels of dissolved Oxygen within the heating system prior to the Vortex being installed. Therefore for illustration purposes we have used the lower end of savings that are typically achieved.
Over and above the direct energy savings, the removal of Oxygen and helping to prevent corrosion will also reduce ongoing maintenance due to rusting of radiators, blocked pipes etc. extend the life of the heating system. According to the Energy Saving Trust, in the UK tests in laboratories and homes indicate that the efficiency of heating systems can fall by as much as 15% where magnetites created by corrosion are present in the system. Further information on the effect of corrosion is provided on our testing page.
The table below shows expected savings over a 20yr period based on a conservative 20% for direct savings:
