The main objective of the seminar is to review the various strategies utilized in the design and implementation of high efficiency domestic hot water (DHW) heating. The topics will include gas-fired condensing water heating as well as an in-depth look at combination system technologies. There will be a detailed discussion on DHW storage utilization and the impact on overall system efficiency. The seminar will also expand upon the role of sequencing & controls as well as code impacts and key considerations required for proper system design and integration. The culmination of this discussion will result in a better understanding of the various options available in DHW heating and which methods and techniques lend themselves to developing a high efficient DHW system.

Learning objectives include: 

  • Gain a thorough understanding of condensing technology and the benefits associated with this approach (gas-fired DHW heating)
  • Understand the impact DHW storage has on overall system efficiency, especially when it comes to gas-fired, condensing DHW production
  • Learn why controls and sequencing are essential to system efficiency and equipment longevity
  • Gain an understanding of how to properly integrate DHW with High Efficiency Boilers and the benefits associated with this approach
  • Comprehend current code requirements and considerations required for proper DHW system design
