Water heating can account for one-third of a multifamily building’s total energy load and over half of a building’s carbon emissions. This webinar will address water heating system design and the technologies necessary to lower energy consumption and reduce carbon emission. First, understand how to implement the three primary ways to improve water heating system performance in multifamily buildings: water heating efficiency equipment, water conservation, and the distribution system. Second, learn about the proven heat pump water heating technologies for new and retrofit multifamily buildings, as well as emerging technologies that are changing the game. Finally, see the high performance water heating considerations and benefits through a feasibility study for an existing multifamily building in San Jose.
