In many ways Warmboard is a contributor to conservation.
In terms of water consumption, Warmboard is a minimalist. Stated by the U.S. Geological Survey and the U.S. Census Bureau, we live in a world housing a population exceeding 6.6 billion people, where the average person uses 80-100 gallons of water per day.
Warmboard and the heating system components require very little water to operate.
According to Jennifer McDonald, director of design at Warmboard, an average home of 2,500 sq ft with Warmboard radiant sub floors and tubing installed will contain approximately 25 to 30 gallons of water for the life of the home that never needs to be drained and replaced.
Additionally, Warmboard recognizes that construction material waste can add up during new construction and remodels. To address this concern, highly educated and trained employees design the layout of the Warmboard to provide an exact number of the panels needed. This precision helps the person install the flooring with ease as well as reducing construction material waste and decreasing the expenditures.
Furthermore, Warmboard requires lower temperatures of water to heat a space compared to other similar products. Because of this, Warmboard pairs beautifully with solar panels and geo thermal pumps. The combination of these two components creates a more efficient, money saving, comfortable place to live and work.
Warmboards Director of Technical Services, Paul Izenstark said, “The combination of Warmboard and solar energy is an ideal interface because it is easier to produce water temperatures of 100_ F than 120_ F.” He adds, “We live in a time where heat sources in our life time will change to renewable resources. Warmboard has the capability to sustain the change, from non-renewable heat resources to alternative ones”
Lower water temperatures means a lower energy bill of 20 to 40 percent. No longer is Warmboard a modern luxury just for the home enthusiast, but it is a product that is sustainable in terms of energy efficiency and low impact on the world’s resources. As design professional, Ken Pieper said, “It just makes sense.”
Of course it does.
