Local Issues

Closed-loop HVAC systems in the mid-Atlantic take a beating.  With cold winters and hot summers, there is a lot of switching from heating to cooling and back again, and the extreme temperature changes that come with the seasons wreak havoc on hydronic piping systems.  As these systems age, the pipe insulation designed to prevent condensation deteriorates allowing ambient air to come into contact with the exterior of the pipes. This results in condensation forming on the pipe that is trapped behind the insulation, greatly accelerating the corrosion of the exterior of the pipes. Constant moisture on the outside of the pipe wall accelerates deterioration of the insulation, exacerbating the situation.  Buildings built prior to 1985 that utilize two and four pipe closed loop heating and cooling systems, typical in the Mid Atlantic as well as other areas of the country, are experiencing an epidemic of pipe system failures.

Across the mid-Atlantic, we have seen this issue in all property types, ranging from garden style condominiums to high-rise apartments to commercial properties of all shapes and sizes.  The good news is that a SageWater hydronic repipe not only solves the problem of leaking pipes, but significantly improves the efficiency of these systems, particularly when paired with fan coil unit (FCU) replacement, making a hydronic repipe an energy efficient solution.
