Make Your Hot Water Baths Eco-friendly With Heat Exchangers
Who doesn’t desire a hot shower after a long day at work? Well, most of us do. Given the fact that warm water accelerates blood circulation and aids in better sleep. While hot showers may seem a luxury and some cut down their shower time to reduce their electricity bills, we indirectly do waste a lot of energy that could be recycled. An heat exchanger is all it takes to recycle the energy that is drained out along with water. Eco drain is one such innovative heat exchanger that is easy-to-install and effectively recycles the heat from hot water showers.
Eco drain is a small environment friendly device that has heat exchanging channels which move the heat from the water, drained through hot water showers, to the cold water in the inlet – without mixing them both. The best part of this device is the flexibility it offers. It doesn’t require electricity for operation and is not composed of moving parts. Creating a turbulence effect, the pipe transfers the heat energy from the shower water to the cold water in the water supply. Available in vertical and horizontal models, it can be either connected directly to the water heater or the shower mixing valve or both. While the initial expenses for installing the system may seem huge, the greater returns experienced on a long term makes Eco drain extremely affordable.
With the development of such technologies, embracing eco-friendly options are not that difficult any more. While shortening shower is a simple way of saving energy, implementing such technologies ensures that the energy you consume is used on an optimal level. There are many such innovative eco-friendly substitutes available in the market. However not many are aware of them. We at Polycab, use the ‘latest technologies’ category in our blog section as a medium to cover such environment friendly gadgets.
Stay tuned to learn about the latest technologies in the market.
