Drain water heat recovery systems can save a significant amount of energy in the right setting. In commercial building retrofits the technology can be a challenge, but new construction applications show promise for easier installation. Join us to explore the results of our retrofit DHR systems field study. Attend all or just a portion of this two-part webinar.

Who should watch?

Plumbers, HVAC contractors, facility operations managers, facility energy managers, designers, architects, engineers, building owners, developers, service contractors, utility program managers, policymakers, state and local officials, energy auditors, energy program implementers and anyone interested in high performance building construction and retrofits.

Part 1: Energy-savings potential of DHR systems

Take a look at the facts surrounding DHR system performance. We'll reveal the energy-savings results of the commercial buildings we studied, define the factors that made an impact on energy savings, identify the facilities and settings in which this technology is most usable and discuss cost effectiveness.

Part 2: Practical DHR system applications

Review effective DHR system design and installation approaches. We'll show you what to look for when screening facilities for DHR system use, explain flow-through and pumped loop system configurations to accommodate different system flow needs, discuss sizing and controls and describe ideal plumbing layouts for new construction applications.
