Resolving the Circulation Dilemma in Multifamily Buildings
Demand-controlled pumping for hot water distribution holds high value in multifamily buildings.
In just four months last year, Pacific Power, with the help of Energy Technology Laboratories (ETL)--not to be confused with ETL Testing Laboratories--placed energy-efficient showerheads in more than 100,000 Oregon homes. [continue reading]
It is a documented fact that low-flow showerheads generally save less energy than a simple change in flow calculation would indicate. [continue reading]
How much energy do low-flow showerheads actually save? To answer this question, Proctor Engineering Group (PEG) and Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) metered 243 showerheads as part of a larger evaluation of PG&E's low-flow showerhead rebate program. [continue reading]
The Michigan Public Service Commission (MPSC) staff was interested in conducting a pilot program to look at the feasibility, cost and energy savings of electric-to-gas water heater conversions. [continue reading]
The Bonneville Power Administration (Bonneville) provides wholesale electric power to more than 100 retail distribution utilities in the Pacific Northwest. [continue reading]
The cost of heating water went through the roof for one man recently when his hot water heater exploded and rocketed through the roof of his home. [continue reading]
Install high-efficiency showerheads and faucets in the average U.S. house, and the water meter will report about 6,000 gallons of water saved in one year. Not bad. But the savings continue. If the house has an electric water heater, the electric meter will show about 600 kilowatt-hours savings; if it's a gas heater, the savings will be 30 therms. [continue reading]
