Tumble dryers should be taken in to account when calculating theΒ total annual unregulated energyΒ consumption of communal laundry facilities with commercial sized appliances.Β 

Heat recovery from a commercial sized tumble dryer exhaust can be used as an alternative to the solutions listed within the Ene 08 credit issue provided it will achieve a meaningful reduction of energy demand, and justification can be given as to why Β this method has been implemented over those recommended in the manual.Β 

The list of equipment types and compliance requirements is not intended to be exhaustive, however where alternative solutions are proposed, the design team must provide justification and evidence as outlined above, to the satisfaction of the assessor.
