Energy, Water and Time Efficient Hot Water Systems

Once we build a high performance building, there are still major challenges with what to do with hot water distribution. Most practitioners are using outdated methods to control distribution piping, plumbing fixtures & appliances, and waste heat that runs down the drain. This workshop will present practical measures you can incorporate into your next project that result in high performance hot water systems and very satisfied customers.

We will demonstrate the principles, not just discuss them, by using the United Association’s Mobile Service Tech Training Lab to demonstrate some of the key principles and components of the most effective hot water systems, including the pressure drop through pipe of different diameters, that it takes 1.5-2.5 times the actual volume in a pipe for hot water to arrive at the other end, and how pressure compensating orifice aerators outperform fixed orifice aerators at low operating pressures. Because of the size of the training lab, space is limited to 20 registrants. Registrations will be accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis.
