Aquatherm is proud to be a pioneering contributor to the development of sustainable, environmentally-responsible building materials. Our LEED document was compiled to provide a practical guide for applying Aquatherm piping systems to the LEED credits program.
The current edition focuses on major strategies that address several credits at once, earning a number of points by implementing one large innovation. There are many ways to help protect environmental and human health while promoting sustainable development. Switching to Aquatherm piping systems from the current industry standards offers a wide variety of health and safety benefits, not all of which are addressed by the LEED program at this time.
This document is intended to address Aquatherm's relevance to LEED credits based on Version 3.0 of the LEED for New Construction and Major Renovations Reference Guide. The strategies outlined act as a starting point for earning the appropriate LEED credits. Depending on the situation, upgrading to Aquatherm could offer an even larger contribution to the LEED credits than listed in the guide.
