Drain Water Heat Recovery

In most homes, the second largest energy expense is for heating water. Rather than have all the heat disappear down the drain with the water, recovery units are able to extract the heat and transfer it back to the cold water going into your water heater. That can significantly reduce your hot water costs. Talk to Upside about including a Drain Water Heat Recovery unit in your home.
