Cost-effective Energy Savings
The cost of heating water is usually the second-biggest energy expenditure in a multi-family residential building, exceeded only by the cost of space heating.
As building envelopes become more energy efficient, the cost of water heating grows as a proportion of overall building energy load profiles and costs. Currently, nearly 90% of the heat energy in warm drain water is wasted down the drain. In terms of overall annual energy expenditures, this has a significant impact on a building owner's budgets. When you consider the lifecycle of a building, the cost of this wasted energy is enormous.
The Power-Pipe® Drain Water Heat Recovery (DWHR) System is a proven and effective means to immediately reduce building water heating costs by 20 to 40%, and to continue saving throughout the entire building lifecycle.
