Drain Water Heat Recovery (DWHR)
Drain Water Heat Recovery (DWHR) is becoming more popular every year, especially since the Alberta Government added it to their Energy Rebate Program. What is DWHR? DWHR is a maintenance free device that recoups some of the heat, during a shower, you’ve already paid for by transferring it to the incoming cold water that goes into your hot water tank. If that sounds a little confusing, don’t sweat it. There is a video that can explain it in more detail at the bottom.
In order to qualify you must first find your plumbing stack in the basement. Typically, there is one located in the mechanical room, however sometimes they get covered up in a wall somewhere. Secondly, find out how many of your showers drain into that stack pipe. You must have at least one shower that drains into it to qualify for a rebate. If two of your showers drain into it, you will get a larger rebate. 180 Plumbing and Heating will install your DWHR unit, send in the paperwork, and you’ll get the rebate in the mail.
