2013 ASPE Webinar Series

Two-part Webinar: Design of Domestic Hot Water Systems

Original Air Dates: July 16-17

Each one-hour webinars provides 0.1 CEU or 1.0 PDH.



Join ASPE for a two-part webinar to cover the design of domestic hot water systems. During the first webinar learn about the model code provisions for use of domestic hot water, types of water heaters (instantaneous, storage type, gas-fired, electric, etc.) and design issue associated with them, and design of the distribution system for various types of buildings.  During the second webinar, the presenter will include design issues for domestic hot water systems for buildings that require multiple temperature distribution and for buildings that require multiple pressure zones. It is expected that each participant will understand the basics of domestic hot water usage and design at the completion of the webinar. Please note that the webinar will include provisions for a circulated hot water temperature maintenance system as it relates to the multiple temperature and/or pressure zones for a building, but we will not be spending any time on the actual design of the hot water temperature maintenance system. Please refer to the recent ASPE webinar on that topic.
