Rain Water Harvesting

Rain Water- Harvesting rainwater has become a serious consideration for all new build or refurbishment projects. Architects and builders understand the importance of specifying rainwater harvesting systems to make houses more sustainable and to reduce the cost of running a home. The great difference between grey water and rain water is the option of using collected rain fall as potable water (safe to use for drinking, cooking, and bathing).

 

Just like grey water systems, rain water collection systems can be complex with underground tanks, less obvious piping, and water pumps to divert the collected water to the most ideal areas. Or if that’s not quite in your budget this year, a simple gutter to barrel approach is an efficient and inexpensive way to utilize rainfall in your garden or orchard. 

Houshold Grey Water 

Due to changing climate and weather patterns both water and energy are precious commodities thus increasing the incentives for efficient, sustainable plumbing systems. According to Oasis Design, greywater accounts for 50-80% of residential water waste and although it's generally clean of dangerous pollutants, it goes straight down the drain after a single use. And much of what is wasted has not actually been used at all, such as warm-up water from your shower or sink. Greywater systems are what we put into place to catch and reuse this water. They can be simple and manual, or more complicated, automatic and gravity-fed.

SRP Green Home Checkup

This is just text for demonstration purposes. A involve supplying heat directly to the floor or to panels in the wall or ceiling of a house. The systems depend largely on radiant heat transfer: the delivery of heat directly from the hot surface to the people and objects in the room via the radiation of heat.

Radiant Heating

Having a radiant heating system in your home or office is an excellent way to stay warm at a lower cost. It is extremely energy-efficient because no heat is lost in transfer (as is the case with forced air heating where heated air travels through ducts from the furnace to the various rooms in the house.). There is also a tax credit of up to $1,500 available for some radiant systems, consult an energy auditor for complete energy efficiency recommendations.

The systems depend largely on radiant heat transfer: the delivery of heat directly from the hot surface to the people and objects in the room via the radiation of heat, which is also called infrared radiation. Radiant heating is the effect you feel when you can feel the warmth of a hot stovetop element from across the room. When radiant heating is located in the floor, it is often called radiant floor heating or simply floor heating” (The US Department of Energy)”
