As with the first washing machines and VHF video recorders, the first HERUs will initially be expensive as they will be hand-built, however, this cost will come down significantly as more units enter production. The first units will suit hotels, restaurants, care homes etc where there is a charge to remove the resources these businesses currently discard. These sales to early adopters will serve to take HERU closer to a production line.
Our aim is to make the HERU no more expensive than that of a floor mounted boiler, at around £4,000. When produced in large numbers on production lines, we hope the cost will continue to become more and more affordable with excellent engineering practices and innovation.
The first 15 early adopter units will be approximately £15,000 including VAT. A reasonably low investment for large corporate organisations wishing to demonstrate a commitment to our environment and to enable the responsible management of our resources.
