Energy continues to be a hot topic and New Brunswickers are as interested as ever in technologies that can reduce their energy consumption. As energy prices continue to rise and we learn more about our impact on the environment, the need for high efficiency products is becoming more and more important.
As it relates to the home, the obvious opportunity is reducing the heating load first. However, once you’ve insulated, replaced windows and improved your heating system, how do you further reduce your need for energy?
The answer: Your domestic hot water heating system.
Domestic hot water can account for up to 30% of your home’s energy consumption. Furthermore, new homes are being built as tight as ever and with homeowners wanting the luxuries of whirlpool tubs and waterfall showers, domestic hot water loads can easily surpass heating as the highest energy user.
