High-efficiency heating system prototype launched

Evanston-based Energy Recovery Technologies, LLC says it has built a prototype of its high efficiency heating and cooling system that captures almost 100 percent of the exhausted energy that has traditionally gone up the chimney.

ERT’s new technology "will create game changing advances in the marketplace,” says the firm’s president, Ron Fleckman.

Evanston-based Energy Recovery Technologies, LLC says it has built a prototype of its high efficiency heating and cooling system that captures almost 100 percent of the exhausted energy that has traditionally gone up the chimney.

ERT’s new technology "will create game changing advances in the marketplace,” says the firm’s president, Ron Fleckman.

The company’s founder, Ken Kayser, says the unit, installed at a test location in Roanoke, Va., is up and running and performing beyond expectations.

Fleckman said the system can substantially reduce greenhouse gas emissions and provide cost savings for customers.

Fleckman says ERT plans to hire Evanston residents to build the systems, "some of whom will be employment challenged," and that the firm has contracted with a local not-for-profit to help provide job readiness and employment training.
