Turn Up The Heat - Sustainable Tankless Water Heaters

Water heaters are vital for every building’s operation. However, traditional tank-style water heaters are inefficient, unreliable, and harmful to the environment. Join us in this one-hour course as we discuss the many benefits of tankless water heaters, including lower building emissions and increased occupant health. Participants will encounter real-world analyses and case studies that incorporate tankless water heaters in a variety of applications.

Learning Objectives:

(1) Compare and contrast commercial tank and tankless water heaters in terms of durability, sustainability, performance, and space-saving
(2) Identify the environmental benefits of specifying tankless water heaters in commercial applications, including lower building emissions and improved life-cycle costs

(3) Recognize the advantages of commercial tankless water heaters in terms of occupant health and comfort, in
accordance with the WELL v2 Water Standard

(4) Develop sustainable projects that utilize commercial tankless water heaters based on case studies from a wide variety of applications

13 Pitfalls of Heat Pump Water Heaters and How to Avoid Them

Electrification was a key topic at this year’s AHR Expo, and is a growing concern among many states and municipalities who wish to reduce carbon emissions through banning the use of natural gas in commercial buildings. Heat pump water heaters provide a viable way forward for commercial applications, yet there are several potential pitfalls to avoid, so that safety and efficiency can be maximized.

This webinar will discuss the available options in electric tankless water heaters, and how to avoid pitfalls when specifying the equipment.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Identify the electric tankless water heater options that are available for commercial facilities.
  2. Describe how these electric tankless units work.
  3. Explain how to properly size the units, and how to install them.
  4. Determine the pitfalls of tank-type heat pump water heaters and the advantages of going tankless.
  5. Explore the water heating capacities currently available.

How to Size Heat Pump Water Heaters For Efficiency and Cost

Commercial water heating systems are capital intensive and have long-term effects on building performance and occupant satisfaction. If sized incorrectly, it can lead to problems like energy inefficiency, higher utility bills, or lack of adequate hot water. The goal with sizing is to provide the required volume of hot water daily in an efficient, cost-friendly, and safe manner. However, sizing has become more challenging with the popularity of heat pump water heaters. Set to replace gas-powered water heaters, the recency of this technology along with its complicated sizing methodology with needs for tank-style setups has led to a host of challenges for specifiers who end up creating grossly ineffective and space hogging systems.

This webinar explores how to size HPWH systems, discussing common mistakes, assumptions and limitations that frequently cause oversizing or under-sizing. We will also discuss the impact of varying hot water loads, demand responses, and ambient and groundwater temperatures on the sizing of HPWHs.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Describe why it is “tricky” to design heat pump water heaters correctly for a given application.
  2. Discuss common mistakes, assumptions, and limitations that cause over-sizing or under-sizing.
  3. Explain the impact of lower outdoor temperatures, ground water temperature, hot water loads, and demand response on sizing.
  4. Overcome these roadblocks and produce high-confidence heat pump water heating systems.
  5. Identify how to size large multifamily applications using the smallest footprint and lowest power needs.
