The New American Home is the Official Showcase home being built for the International Builders Show in Orlando in January, 2011. It is a focal point of the US Department of Energy's goal towards zero energy homes and complies with the Green Building Program guidelines. The technologies and equipment featured had to meet the highest standard in energy conservation and environmental sensitivity.
NAHB researched available solutions that would prevent limescale buildup from hard water; without which the energy savings and efficiencies are dramatically reduced and the appliances are prone to repair and early replacement. The salt based and chemical water softeners were not selected, as the salts have to be extracted from the water by the water utilities, waste water with backwashes and require maintenance.
HydroCare technology met the criteria for a green, energy efficient, and effective solution that is easily integrated into any home. The patented unit sends a strong radio frequency signal throughout the entire plumbing system and into all water equipment. The signal creates a crystallization of the minerals in the hard water, keeping them suspended and preventing them from adhering to surfaces. The process will also breakdown existing lime scale buildup and maintain a pristine surface. Unlike other electronic water conditioner devices using magnets and coils, HydroCare does not loose strength in different temperatures, pressure or in the absence of water flow.
HydroCare units will be in the New Home to optimize performance of the energy efficient appliances, tankless water heaters, kitchen appliances, pool and solar system. There is no maintenance and the unit operates consistently in all conditions and pipes. It simply clips on the outside of the pipe without any invasive plumbing and does not require any space.
