  • OSEA: Manitoba Becomes First in the World to Mandate the Adoptions of a Proven Energy Saving Technology
    for the adoption of DWHR technology Builders and homeowners can also cost effectively improve their home s Home Energy Rating System HERS Index scores by 1 to 3 points with DWHR EnergyStar for New Homes LEED for Homes and Building Energy Codes all reference the HERS Index so builders and developers can also save money by using DWHR in order to comply with these various programs or laws HERS is recognized for energy compliance in the 2015 version of the IECC www HERSindex com Including DWHR technology in new homes has become common practice for many builders and developers in North America because DWHR helps them to build more affordably while saving energy for occupants DWHR for new construction is actually a more cost competitive energy saving measure in most of the United States where space heating and cooling loads are lower than it is in Canada where water heating makes up a smaller percentage of total energy consumption The International Energy Conservation Code IECC also provides credit for including DWHR in multi family residential buildings and commercial buildings RenewABILITY Energy Inc has been manufacturing the Power Pipe DWHR technology for over a decade now The CEO and Founder Gerald Van Decker states I believe the Government of Manitoba took this bold step for a number of reasons First and foremost DWHR is a proven maintenance free energy saving class of technology that doesn t ask anyone to change their lifestyle but instead it improves occupant comfort by increasing hot water capacity Next similar to wall insulation DWHR units essentially become a part of the infrastructure in the buildings they are installed in such as homes apartment buildings and dorms Minimum wall insulation is mandatory almost everywhere so why should we continue to let energy be wasted in the form
