ACT, Inc.’s Press Release: Recent Completions of Two September Contracts
Costa Mesa, CA— Located and manufactured in Southern California, international business ACT Inc. D’MAND® Systems announced earlier this week that their National Builders Program (NBP) signed and finalized two contracts with both the Tri Pointe Group and Meritage Homes in mutual effort to promote water and energy efficiency to a national practice.
Over the next couple of months, Tri Pointe and Meritage homes are expected to incorporate ACT, Inc.’s On-Demand electronic pump systems into new homes.
The excitement surrounding these prospective installations lies within the significant water and energy savings of just one D’MAND system; the promise of hundreds of On-Demand pumps is a sign that a large-scale, positive impact on the environment is underway. An ACT D’MAND Kontrols® system works in new and existing homes to gets hot water immediately to any fixture in the house by command of either a wireless/wired activation button, motion sensor, voice-activation, or flow switch— it’s a hot water distribution system that runs only when it needs to, instead of continuously (like most homes). Costing less than $1 dollar to run each year, just a single system annually saves a household about 10,000 gallons of water, $300 dollars in energy and water bills, and eliminates approximately 3,000lbs of carbon dioxide emissions every 365 days. With a history of government-funded tests attesting to the consistency of the statistics, there’s no question that a huge environmental difference will be seen as consequence of the exchanges made between Meritage Homes, the TriPointe Group, and ACT Inc. in this mass, national provision of instant hot water through Structured Plumbing®.
