The installation was so successful that the new system was later adapted to assist with the kitchen make up air. The dishwasher was put on hot water fill to help reduce energy consumption further still, representing an additional energy saving of 7.3 kW.
“Investing in a KERS Unit was the next logical step for us to reduce our carbon emissions and utility bills. The effect is remarkable and evident immediately after installation”, said John Branagan executive chef director. Living Ventures would see a return on their investment within one year.
Trading House owners, Living Ventures were so impressed with the difference made by Kers, we were later appointed to work on a number of the brand’s other venues including the popular Alchemist, Gusto and Botanist chain of restaurant and cocktail bars. Similar systems were installed at a number of locations around the country, helping to drive additional savings and energy efficiency for Living Ventures across its portfolio of sites.
KERS can be retro-fitted to any cookline without disrupting the operation of the equipment or the extraction systems. “The Trading House is a new build with no gas boilers installed, but KERS can be easily installed in any existing kitchen with the same results,” says Neil Guest CEO. With 98% carbon zero energy and 98% recycled energy it’s a job well done!
