Luxury Condo saves 30% on hot water bills with Intellihot.

For nearly 30 years, Bay Square Condos relied on tank-type water heaters to provide hot water for its residents. The management firm changed to Intellihot and significantly lowered its operating costs.

Built in 1987, Bay Square luxury condominiums are located between Harvard and Central Square on Mass Avenue. It is a full service condo building featuring 113 units on 7 floors, that vary from studios to two bedroom units.Bay Square Condos provide many modern amenities to its residents such as a fitness center, saunas, and an outdoor pool.

 

"The Intellihot units were chosen for the ease of installation and service as well as their reliability. We’ve had very good experience with the Intellihot units and the contractors really like them as well". - Dave Mahoney, C3 Project

The Challenge

The non-condensing water heaters were only 83% efficient and the condo owners were feeling the pain from their annual heating expenditures. Legionella was also a concern with the current 750 gallon storage tank and required regular maintenance to protect the system.

The Intellihot Solution

Specifically designed to optimize efficiency, two iQ1001s were installed to easily handle the cold groundwater temperature while providing significant savings to the owners. The risk of legionella was eliminated altogether with Intellihot’s tankless equipment.
