Traditional renewable products and applications often bring to mind solar panels, wind turbines, and geothermal installations. There are, however, a list of HVAC-specific items that could be considered as energy-saving options for the residential and commercial contractor looking to offer customers renewable solutions.
Take for instance the Rheem H2AC™ Rooftop Unit featuring eSync™ Integration Technology, which uses heat recovery science to reutilize exhausted heat that would typically be rejected into the atmosphere. Using Rheem’s proprietary eSync Integration Technology, the H2AC Rooftop Unit is able to preheat an establishment’s cold water supply from as low as 55°F to as high as 138°. The company estimates that this system can provide up to 50 percent savings on monthly water heating expenses and, in many cases, customers can reach the payback point on the investment in less than two years.
