The lifeblood of our world, and us. Without water we don’t live very long and with polluted water we don’t live very well. As we face a potential shortage of water one has to wonder what our options are. Well Jaymi Heimbuch over at Treehugger has written a really good post about atmospheric water generators, what they are and how they work. As well she has gathered together a list of the seven best alternatives for home use. If this is something that interests you I suggest you drop by Treehugger and give it a read through.
The basic idea behind atmospheric water generators (AWG) is that it condenses the warm air passing over a coil from a vapor to a liquid. It’s a pretty simple premise but finding the right home AWG for yourself might not be so easy. So here is a short form list of seven for you to consider courtesy of Jaymi Heimbuch (you can read all the details about each if them over at Treehugger).
DewPointe – Selling point: the only unit on the market with certifications from every organization in the world.
AquaMaker AM10 – Selling point: it has a hot water tank as well as an enclosed pack for filtration systems.
Air Water Maker E-10 – Selling point: hot and cold water on demand as well as a leakage sensor.
Dolphin 2/dragonfly M18 – Selling point: compact counter size
EcoloBlue 28 – Selling point: other than its stylish looks the company website is user-friendly when it comes to ordering stuff.
WaterMill – Selling point: it’s an outdoor unit
