Sanden C02 Heat Pump Water Heaters



Sanden CO2 heat pump water heaters are starting to create a buzz. In 2018, all of our Sanden workshops were full and people started ordering these state-of-the art products for their projects. We are hoping we can get even more people excited about Sanden’s system and here’s why:

The system replaces standard heat pump refrigerants with CO2, which dramatically increases the efficiency, while eliminating the global warming potential of standard refrigerants. It's a double whammy of effectiveness achieved by collecting CO2 from manufacturing waste streams.

New KlimaGuard Line Helps Small Planet Supply Stick to Its Values

Starting in April, Small Planet began offering a new line of high-performance building tapes called KlimaGuard.  Since we already offer a number of high-performance tapes, you may be wondering why we’ve added another line to our inventory.    The answer is quite simple, incredible value.   Small Planet Supply CEO Albert Rooks made this change to address an unmet demand in the market.  “Builders want to construct better buildings,” Rooks said, “But the high cost of high-performance tapes makes it difficult to stay within budget.” (Read more)

Seven Reasons why We Love Beautiful, Sustainable Cork

Small Planet Supply has been importing and selling ThermaCork since 2012.

We're including some recent press in this month's newsletter and a video of some of our favorite projects in this month's newsletter.
