New Tech to Reduce Hot Water costs by 2/3s

Welcome AWESome EarthKind People!

We don’t often think about the cost – or environmental impact – of using hot water for our bathing, washing clothes and dishes, and hand washing.

But – did you know that hot water is responsible for 15 to 20% of the average homeowner’s energy expense? According to the US Dept of energy, water heating is the second largest energy expense in our homes. The average household consumes 64 gallons of hot water a DAY. Depending on where you live and how you heat your hot water, the energy costs range from $400 to $800 a year.

Even worse  – every day in the United States, 5,000 water heaters fail – and 80% of them wind up in landfills.

In this week’s AWESome EarthKind podcast, listen to John Hynds of Torii industries. Torii has created a next generation hot water product that taps into energy-saving advanced materials – and uses a subscription model to eliminate the upfront costs, maintenance, and replacement hassles. Wouldn’t you like to reduce hot water costs in your home?

In past AWESome EarthKind episodes, we discussed the induction coil technology that is being used for cooking, and how the world’s leading chefs have discovered that induction stovetops enable them to cook twice as much food in half the time, with better temperature control and improved kitchen comfort – without the air quality issues that come from cooking with gas.

Now, Torii is using induction technology and advanced graphite foam materials to reduce hot water energy costs by two-thirds, while recycling the units to keep them out of landfills.
