Dedicated experts from Dan Davis Sales, and Rick’s Plumbing had other ideas. Proactively, they made a site visit to understand the concerns in detail. Leveraging their experience, they prepared an actionable plan to ensure a clean and simple installation.

Two iQ751 floor-standing tankless units were chosen. Delivering a combined heating output of over 1.5 million BTUs/hr., the units feature smart common venting capabilities. The team was able to utilize this feature to implement a clean and simple design, as pictured above. 

Thanks to a professionally clean installation, the building management team at Rowe apartments are able to operate and maintain their hot water system with ease. With serviceable parts’ life tracking available on their mobile phones via the telliCare app, efficiency never felt so easy.
