Companies Team to Help Victims

January 14, 2013
HAZELTON, Pa. — RenewABILITY Energy (REI) USA and Benjamin Franklin Plumbing established an agreement to help homeowners affected by Hurricane Sandy in New York and New Jersey by installing Power-Pipe® drain water heat recovery systems free of charge during any repairs made by Benjamin Franklin.

Benjamin Franklin Plumbing and REI will donate products and installation time to some homeowners impacted by the hurricane.

“As families look to return to a state of normalcy, we are fortunate to have the opportunity to help,” said Darren Dixon, vice president of operations, Clockwork Home Services, owner of the Benjamin Franklin brand. “The Department of Energy reports that residential water heating is the second largest use of energy in homes, outside of space heating. Power-Pipe drain water heat recovery systems reduce residential water heating by 25 to 40 percent and are a proven, practical, energy-saving technology, with no moving parts which simply preheat incoming, cold-fresh water, with outgoing warm-drain water.”
