Hansgrohe launches online water savings calculator
UAE, August 22, 2011
Hansgrohe AG, leading manufacturer of bathroom fittings and showerheads, has launched its online savings calculator.
The calculator demonstartes the environmental benefits and cost savings attained by using the EcoSmart technology, the company said.
Mixers and showerheads fitted with EcoSmart consume up to 60 percent less water than conventional products without any loss of comfort. Lower hot water consumption also means a reduced energy requirement, resulting in lower CO2 emissions and lower costs.
This is an essential product for the Middle East and in particular the UAE, with Abu Dhabi claiming the highest per capita water consumption rate in the world last year at 525 – 600 gallons per day.
The Emirate‘s total consumption of water resources exceeds its natural recharge capacity by 24 times, a Business Monitor International report was quoted as saying.
Simple to use, the new tool displays water, energy and CO2 savings and helps customers integrate care for the environment into everyday life, the company said.
For sanitation, heating and air conditioning professionals, it can be used to demonstrate the cost saving potential offered by the EcoSmart technology, it said.
To calculate savings, users have to select their desired product from three showers and mixers fitted with the EcoSmart technology and enter their consumption data, including the number of people in the household, the average time spent showering, the water rate and the type of energy used.
The calculator displays the water and CO2 savings for the EcoSmart technology as compared to a conventional product, as well as the time it will take to amortise procurement costs, it said.
Users can then print out their results together with a picture of the selected product and its serial number and take them to a dealer. The nearest Hansgrohe dealer can be found using the dealer locator below the savings calculator.
The savings calculator can be accessed on the website and is compatible on smartphones and tablets as well as regular laptop and desktop computers. – TradeArabia News Service
