Watts SmartStream UV Water Disinfection

Watts’ new SmartStream UV disinfects water using ultraviolet lamp technology. It inactivates a variety of microorganisms, including cysts, bacteria, viruses and parasites. Those organisms, if ingested, could lead to serious illness and even death.

UV light is highly effective, capable of inactivating up to 99.9999% of harmful organisms. In addition, the UV disinfection process requires no contact with toxic chemicals and, as a result, produces no harmful by-products.

SmartStream is designed and assembled in the U.S.A., exclusively by Watts. It can be used with other Watts water quality products to provide complete solutions. Ask us for details.

Rheem Integrates Nest

Rheem Announces Integration with Nest

Heating, cooling and water heating systems dominate residential utility bills and combined can account for more than 65 percent of a home’s energy use. A home’s water heating system alone is about 20 percent of that total, so regulating it can amount to significant savings each year.

Through the integration, when the Nest Thermostat is set to Away mode, EcoNet-enabled water heaters will go into an energy-efficient operating mode to reduce the amount of energy the water heater uses and help save money on utility bills. Rheem’s line of EcoNet-enabled Electric and Hybrid Heat Pump Water Heaters now work with Nest.

Boiler Replacement

Seven Telltale Signs Your Boiler Needs To Be Replaced

It is not uncommon for property owners or facility managers to wait until a boiler completely breaks down before replacing the unit. To make things worse, these types of failures happen when there is real need for heat (for instance, a very cold day) and since the failure is unexpected, there are rarely emergency funds allocated to fix the problem.

Suddenly having to shell out unplanned capital to replace a boiler with avoidable damage is no fun. The first tip to helping owners avoid this is to implement a regular maintenance and inspection program with a qualified contractor. These inspections of the boiler system should occur at least once a year.

There’s nothing worse than worrying about the security of your home – or your rising electric bill – while you’re away. Fortunately, recent advancements in home technology offer peace of mind when it comes to energy efficiency, security and time saving.
