Modern buildings are placing significantly more emphasis on sustainability and minimizing energy consumption. Traditional legionella prevention techniques include Thermal-eradication and chemical treatments, both of which are resource intensive and potentially damaging to the environment. Instead of heating water up to above 140°F or using harsh chemicals, CSIDefender® releases positively charged copper and silver ions into the water. This substantially lowers high water temperature requirements and creates no harmful chemical by-products while providing safer water to facility occupants.
For residential building owners and landlords looking to reduce their energy costs, CSI technologies provide an effective solution that’s significantly more environmentally friendly than traditional alternatives. Faculty owners can reduce hot water energy consumption by up to 4%. Depending on your water consumption, this can translate to tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars in energy savings on an annual basis.
