Central Florida Homeowners can ‘Go Green’ with Hybrid Water Heaters from ServiceOne

Homeowners can go green and save money by installing a new heat pump or hybrid water heater from ServiceOne, Orlandos leading AC & plumbing company.

Online PR News – 28-September-2017 – Homeowners across Central Florida are learning that they can go green and save some green by installing a new, state-of-art heat pump or hybrid water heater from ServiceOne, Orlandos leading heating, AC and plumbing company.

Water heaters are estimated to be the second-highest energy users in most American homes, said Bill Gouty, Service One founder and president. Going with a hybrid, also known as heat pump water heaters, can produce substantial savings in utility costs over the course of a year.

Heat pump water heaters (HPWH) use a more efficient method of heating water than traditional storage tank water heaters. A HPWH uses a fan to draw in air and transfers the heat from that air to water in an enclosed tank.

During periods of high hot water demand, HPWHs switch to standard electric resistance heat (hence the reference to them as hybrid hot water heaters) automatically. Your HPWH will come with control panels that you to select from different operating modes, which may include:

Efficiency/Economy Maximizes energy efficiency and savings by only using the heat pump to heat water
Auto/Hybrid This default setting is ideal for daily use and provides energy-efficient water heating with sustained heat
Electric/Heater This high-demand setting is the least energy-efficient, using only the electric element to heat water
Vacation/Timer (not available on all models) Saves on energy use while youre away from home by placing the HPWH in "sleep" mode until you return

The GE GeoSpring Hybrid Water Heater, which is offered by Service One, is one of Americas most efficient 50-gallon water heaters, using 62 percent less energy and saving upwards of $365 a year on utility bills. And because it uses the same water and electric connections as traditional water heaters, installation is fast and easy.

When its time to replace a hot water heater, homeowners should seriously consider a hybrid unit, said Gouty. With the average household spending around $400-$600 per year on water heating, the savings will add up quickly.

ABOUT SERVICE ONE: Founded in 2003 in Longwood, Florida, Service One is a locally owned and operated air conditioning, heating, and plumbing company. Service One repairs, services and maintains all makes and models of air conditioning, heating, and plumbing equipment and fixtures. The company serves residential and business customers in Orange, Seminole, Southwest Volusia, North Osceola and portions of Lake Counties.

Trends in Backflow Prevention Valve Selection & Location – New Engineering Resource Guide Published

Trends in Backflow Prevention Valve Selection & Location – New Engineering Resource Guide Published

Trends in Backflow Prevention Valve Selection & Location – New Engineering Resource Guide Published

Safe-T-Cover announces the release of a new resource for engineers and executives responsible for commercial water supply and infrastructure

Online PR News – 30-March-2016 – Its been happening under our noses, or actually under our feet, but hasnt been widely discussed. Over the last several years municipalities and water purveyors have been evolving their standards for backflow prevention valves on commercial facilities.

The evolving guidelines are increasingly conservative – assigning higher risk profiles to applications and requiring reduced pressure zone (RPZ) type backflow prevention assemblies (BPA) for more applications.

There are several contributing factors, including:
Increased awareness of backflow situations through AMI data
Growing attention to conservation and environmental concerns
Awareness regarding potential cross connection risks with traditional double check assembly (DCA) type BPAs

And as attention focuses on the type of BPA that raises secondary questions regarding the optimal location. Water purveyors, civil engineers, building owners, contractors, fire departments, mechanical engineers and insurance underwriters are all increasingly attentive to the location of valves.

But the body of best practice knowledge has mostly just been passed anecdotally within water districts. At Safe-T-Cover we hear snippets from districts all over the country, and we realized these were wide scale trends. So we undertook to create a resource which would help anyone in the commercial plumbing and waterworks communities find a consolidated overview of these trends in a single guide.

“Were thrilled to release our new guide,” says Craig Carmon, president of Safe-T-Cover. Weve literally spent more than three years researching these trends nationwide. Weve collected input from regulators, purveyors, inspectors, civil and mechanical engineers, attorneys, underwriters, contractors and more. This is the first consolidated reference were aware of regarding these trends in backflow prevention assembly selection and location.

The 15 page illustrated guide covers key topics including:
Water supply safety
Types of backflow
Types of valves
Approaches to backflow management
Design risks
Use cases
Regulations and guidelines
Common installation locations
Trends
Liability and risk considerations

“The default location used to be a mechanical room or vault,” adds Carmon. But theres awareness growing that those locations are often poorly suited as the valve selection evolves. Todays valve specifications increasingly require above grade exterior placement rather than in vaults which often flood, or mechanical rooms where the RPZ drain requirements are simply impractical.

This guide is designed for anybody whos specifying, buying, testing or relying on a commercial supply backflow prevention valve. It takes the reader through the changes, background rationale and factors, and the implications to their existing and future projects.

Randy Holland, Safe-T-Covers expert resource for water authorities and the civil & plumbing engineering community adds, I speak almost weekly with engineering teams at water districts and consulting firms. Im amazed that as common as these trends are, theres been no common resource. Im really excited to bring this guide to the community. Between this BPA trends handbook and our program to help water districts create standard design details, were taking the lead in empowering the professionals that are entrusted with water conservation and safety.

The BPA selection and location engineering resource guide is available for download at http://offers.safe-t-cover.com/trends-in-backflow-prevention-valve-selection. Water districts, engineers and others interested distributing this guide to their teams should contact Craig Carmon to discuss options.

About Safe-T-Cover: Safe-T-Cover helps engineers and municipalities protect important industrial equipment and water infrastructure. Were engineers by training and temperament and we come to work each day to help engineers create the ideal solution to their protection requirements. In addition to helping water purveyors develop standard details to simplify implementation of new approaches, our custom orientation, and modular system, mean that we are able to provide pricing, drawings and specs on custom enclosures within a couple days. And by helping you design the perfect enclosure for your requirements, well help you save big over time.

Trends in Backflow Prevention Valve Selection & Location – New Engineering Resource Guide Published

Trends in Backflow Prevention Valve Selection & Location – New Engineering Resource Guide Published

Trends in Backflow Prevention Valve Selection & Location – New Engineering Resource Guide Published

Safe-T-Cover announces the release of a new resource for engineers and executives responsible for commercial water supply and infrastructure

Online PR News – 30-March-2016 – Its been happening under our noses, or actually under our feet, but hasnt been widely discussed. Over the last several years municipalities and water purveyors have been evolving their standards for backflow prevention valves on commercial facilities.

The evolving guidelines are increasingly conservative – assigning higher risk profiles to applications and requiring reduced pressure zone (RPZ) type backflow prevention assemblies (BPA) for more applications.

There are several contributing factors, including:
Increased awareness of backflow situations through AMI data
Growing attention to conservation and environmental concerns
Awareness regarding potential cross connection risks with traditional double check assembly (DCA) type BPAs

And as attention focuses on the type of BPA that raises secondary questions regarding the optimal location. Water purveyors, civil engineers, building owners, contractors, fire departments, mechanical engineers and insurance underwriters are all increasingly attentive to the location of valves.

But the body of best practice knowledge has mostly just been passed anecdotally within water districts. At Safe-T-Cover we hear snippets from districts all over the country, and we realized these were wide scale trends. So we undertook to create a resource which would help anyone in the commercial plumbing and waterworks communities find a consolidated overview of these trends in a single guide.

“Were thrilled to release our new guide,” says Craig Carmon, president of Safe-T-Cover. Weve literally spent more than three years researching these trends nationwide. Weve collected input from regulators, purveyors, inspectors, civil and mechanical engineers, attorneys, underwriters, contractors and more. This is the first consolidated reference were aware of regarding these trends in backflow prevention assembly selection and location.

The 15 page illustrated guide covers key topics including:
Water supply safety
Types of backflow
Types of valves
Approaches to backflow management
Design risks
Use cases
Regulations and guidelines
Common installation locations
Trends
Liability and risk considerations

“The default location used to be a mechanical room or vault,” adds Carmon. But theres awareness growing that those locations are often poorly suited as the valve selection evolves. Todays valve specifications increasingly require above grade exterior placement rather than in vaults which often flood, or mechanical rooms where the RPZ drain requirements are simply impractical.

This guide is designed for anybody whos specifying, buying, testing or relying on a commercial supply backflow prevention valve. It takes the reader through the changes, background rationale and factors, and the implications to their existing and future projects.

Randy Holland, Safe-T-Covers expert resource for water authorities and the civil & plumbing engineering community adds, I speak almost weekly with engineering teams at water districts and consulting firms. Im amazed that as common as these trends are, theres been no common resource. Im really excited to bring this guide to the community. Between this BPA trends handbook and our program to help water districts create standard design details, were taking the lead in empowering the professionals that are entrusted with water conservation and safety.

The BPA selection and location engineering resource guide is available for download at http://offers.safe-t-cover.com/trends-in-backflow-prevention-valve-selection. Water districts, engineers and others interested distributing this guide to their teams should contact Craig Carmon to discuss options.

About Safe-T-Cover: Safe-T-Cover helps engineers and municipalities protect important industrial equipment and water infrastructure. Were engineers by training and temperament and we come to work each day to help engineers create the ideal solution to their protection requirements. In addition to helping water purveyors develop standard details to simplify implementation of new approaches, our custom orientation, and modular system, mean that we are able to provide pricing, drawings and specs on custom enclosures within a couple days. And by helping you design the perfect enclosure for your requirements, well help you save big over time.
