A heat recovery chiller uses the internal refrigerant to capture some or all of the waste heat and use it to heat a second water loop up to 100°F to 120°F (37°C to 49°C) for use by the GreenAire™ system.

While it is important for a design engineer to calculate the exact hot water load, a general rule of thumb is only 50% of the chiller must be used for heat recovery, lower its cost.
