Following a health check by Grundfos Pumps, a large office building in central London is saving 318 000 kWh a year by replacing obsolete pumps with new energy-efficient models. The savings amount to £30 000 a year, with a payback of 2.8 years and a large reduction in CO2 emissions.

Grundfos typically achieves savings of 30 to 50% for customers with an energy check by pointing the way towards optimal pump replacement that will save energy, achieve reliable operation, reduce downtime and reduce repair costs.
