Calculate Your Energy Savings with a QuikWater Direct-Contact Water Heating System

How much will you save with your QuikWater system? Find out here to compare fuel costs for a typical boiler with a QuikWater unit. We think you'll be amazed by what you discover, but the savings don't stop there. On average, QuikWater customers also experience savings in reduced thermal losses, zero chemical costs, reduced maintenance, and lower insurance rates because our systems are non-pressurized. What's more, most of our customers achieve return on their investment in as little as one year.

Typical Savings Example

Plant's annual operation hours
Length of shift in hours 8
Number of shifts per day x 2
Number of annual operating days x 312
Total annual hours of operation = 4992
Required hot water volume in gallons per minute (gpm) 100
Required temperature rise (ΔT)
Required outlet hot water temperature (°F) 160
Incoming water temperature (°F) 60
Required temperature rise (°F) = 100
Plant's fuel cost rate per thousand cubic feet ($ / mcf)
$ / mcf = $ / therm x 10
$3.50
Plant's calculated Btu / Hr requirements using the following heating energy demand equation:
gpm x 500 x temperature rise (ΔT) = mmBtu / Hr required
  QuikWater Heaters Typical Boiler
Required mmBtu / Hr 5 5
Estimated heating unit
thermal efficiencies
99% 60%
Hourly fuel cost:
mmBtu / hr 5 5
$ / mcf x $3.50 x $3.50
= $17.50 / hr = $17.50 / hr
÷ .99 ÷ .60
Thermal efficiency
(Fuel cost per hour)
= $17.67 / hr = $29.16 / hr
Hourly cost savings   $29.16 / hr
$17.67 / hr
= $11.49 / hr
Daily cost savings   $183.84
Monthly cost savings   $4779.80
Yearly cost savings   $57,357.58
