Rethink Water Heating

SPONSORED BY EEMAX - This session is designed for archictects, engineers, facility managers, contractors, and builders and will address the challenge in finding the right balance between performance and efficiency in water heating systems. A review of plumbing code requirements and insights into specification considerations will be shared. This course will identify types of water heating technologies with a focus on Tankless Electric Water Heater (TEWH) function and design for domestic hot water production in residential (single and multifamily), commerical, and industrial applications.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand service water heating code bodies (UL, UPC, IPC, IECC, ANSI, NEC) which dictate design parameters for safe and efficient hot water delivery
  • Explain the differences between traditional and non-traditional types of water heating technologies (tank vs tankless), and identify strengths and limitations of each in commercial, industrial, and residential water heating applications
  • Summarize advantages & attributes, savings applications & sizing, and address misconceptions about tankless electric water heating technology
  • Interpret and compare the design savings and benefits of electric tankless water heating versus tank-type systems.
