How to heat offices with machine waste heat almost free of charge

Almost all machines produce waste heat. Compressed air systems or curing ovens are at the forefront here, as they generate the most heat. However, this usually dissipates unregulated in the building, which is not only annoying, but also a wasted option for reducing your heating costs. In this article, you can find out all about how you can cleverly use the waste heat from your production machines to heat various rooms, such as offices, and thus reduce your heating costs and also do something good for the environment.

Heat offices with the waste heat from your machines

All manufacturing and production processes rely on machines that usually generate a lot of waste heat, which you can use with the help of modern technologies to heat your offices and other premises. However, machines such as curing ovens are not the only ones that give off valuable heat. Other technologies or building heating systems also have significant potential for warm exhaust air that you should use to heat offices, for example.

Heat offices cleverly - stop waste heat going to waste

In most cases, the valuable waste heat from your machines and building heating systems is wasted in the building without being regulated, which is annoying. On the one hand for the environment, but above all for business management. This is because a lot of energy is wasted in this way, which has to be paid for expensively elsewhere, for example to heat the canteen or the office. But does this now mean that every single machine or Heating must be elaborately equipped with its own residual heat utilization?

Equip machines to heat offices with waste heat

For many commercial enterprises and companies, this question is more economically relevant than initially assumed. Technologies such as integrated heat exchangers can be an interesting approach here. They are designed to combine different heat flows and make maximum use of them in the company, thus heating rooms such as offices. The investment costs are so low that they do not really outweigh the savings. Depending on the system, offices or entire office areas can be heated in this way. One example is a medium-sized production company in North Rhine-Westphalia, where energy consumption has been reduced so significantly that the management can look forward to around 46,000 euros more cash in the till every year.

Conclusion: Waste heat is the smartest way to heat your offices

The waste heat from your production machines is valuable - don't just let it go to waste. An ideal way to use waste heat intelligently is to use it to heat your offices, for example. But of course you can also reuse the waste heat from your machines in other ways. Find out exactly how here.

  • "No energy transition without energy efficiency" is the title of dena's "Topics and projects" section on its homepage "The best kilowatt hour is the one saved," says Thomas Kübler, Managing Partner of KÜBLER GmbH. Both mean the same thing: It's about curbing energy consumption in general and especially in companies. Because this is an enormous lever for achieving climate targets. And that's not all: energy efficiency also pays off economically if it is approached in the right technological way. Modern infrared heating technology plays an important role here, especially when it is intelligently combined with Bennwert technology.
  • What is probably the most effective lever against the gas crisis, price pressure and dependence on Russia at the moment? The answer: consuming less energy. The German government is of this opinion and is calling for energy savings in a large-scale campaign - supported by industry and associations. This goal can be achieved. When it comes to the large halls of industrial and commercial enterprises, it is even easier and quicker than expected.

First things first: the amendment has not yet been passed - and it is questionable whether it will actually be passed 1:1. Because if you trust Struck's law, a law does not usually leave parliament in the form in which it was introduced.
