The Quooker system is an energy–saving option for delivering boiling water. If you need boiling water several times a day, the Quooker system uses no more energy than a kettle. The reason for the low energy consumption of the Quooker system lies under the worktop, but how does this actually work? Because the question is, can you save energy with a Quooker Combi?
The Quooker Combi is a system that provides both instant boiling water and hot water for your kitchen. It is an energy–efficient system that uses a small amount of electricity to keep the water in the tank at temperature. In this article, we take a closer look at the energy consumption of the Quooker Combi.
The Quooker Combi system consists of a tank that is installed under the sink, a faucet that delivers boiling water and a mixer that delivers hot and cold water. The tank is connected to the cold water supply and is heated to a temperature of about 110°C (230°F converted). The tank is insulated to keep the water warm and reduce heat loss. The mixer tap is connected to the hot water supply and can be adjusted to control the temperature of the hot water.
The energy consumption of the Quooker Combi system can be divided into two parts: the energy used to heat the water in the tank, and the energy used to keep the water in the tank at temperature. The energy used to heat the water in the tank depends on the amount of water being heated and the temperature difference between the incoming cold water and the desired temperature of the hot water.
The Quooker Combi system is designed to be energy efficient and only heats the amount of water needed. This means that there is no waste of hot water and the system does not need to heat up water left in the tank. The system is also designed to be quick and easy to use, meaning that the hot water tap does not have to run for a long time to get hot water.
Reducing heat losses
The energy consumption of the Quooker Combi system also depends on the insulation of the tank. The tank is well insulated, keeping the energy used to heat the water within the tank. This reduces heat loss and minimizes the amount of energy needed to keep the water in the tank at temperature.
The Quooker Combi system also has a standby mode, which reduces energy consumption when the system is not in use. When not in use, the system goes into standby mode, which lowers the temperature of the water in the tank to save energy. When the system is used again, it quickly reheats the water to the desired temperature.
