TORONTO, Nov. 27, 2012 /CNW/ - Based in Edenwold Saskatchewan,
Watercycles manufactures and distributes drain water heat recovery
units (DWHRU) across North America and has started to make inroads in
Europe. They manufacture a number of types of units, geared to both
residential and commercial applications in a variety of sizes and
configurations. A key focus of the company is on the raising awareness
of their product to new home builders and particularly R-2000 builders.
All of their products, however, share the beneficial characteristic of
recouping the energy a home or business owner has already purchased to
heat their domestic water. By recovering that energy an owner will then
save on the amount of energy needed to heat any subsequent incoming
In fact, from Watercycles' website "Drain-Water Heat Recovery is
recognized by the U.S. Department of Energy and Natural Resources
Canada as an efficient way to save energy with an average payback
period of 2-7 years." This makes DWHRUs an essential green technology
for both the new and renovation residential construction markets as
well as for commercial and process industries, especially those with
intensive water uses.
Watercycles also participated with CSA, CCBDA, and other industry
stakeholders on the development of a new performance standard on these
units. From CSA, Standard C55 "specifies requirements for measuring the
heat recovery efficiency and pressure loss for vertically installed,
falling-film DWHR units". In fact, Watercycles products already meet
the new CSA B 55.2 standard.
DWHRU can be used in conjunction with traditional water heaters,
tankless water heaters, and with geothermal and solar water heating
systems. And the models from Watercycles have a simple design with no
moving parts, they are 100% recyclable copper construction (and
manufactured from copper tube primarily fabricated from recycled
product itself). The units consume no energy while passively reducing
carbon emissions, and can extend the life of a water heater by reducing
its energy consumption.
The CCBDA looks forward to working with Watercycles Energy Recovery Inc.
over the coming years to promote these effective and green energy
savings devices across Canada, and through the ICA network of 27 global
partners, around the world.
