An Easy, Efficient Choice

When the Vols are in town, this local hotel is the hometown hero, efficiently meeting visitors’ peak occupancy needs, but their old hot water system just couldn’t keep up. Intellihot stepped in and saved them 35% in energy costs in one year. 

There were numerous options when this local hotel reached out to seasoned professionals to replace their aging hot water system. Yet one option stood out - Intellihot. Ease and efficiency in this cost savings solution helped this hometown hotel meet their visitors' needs. 

 

"Replacing both boilers with a single iQ751 gave us the confidence needed during high occupancy. We eliminated over 2/3 of our existing hot water storage tanks and saw an average of 35% reduction in therms per occupied room vs. last year." - Tyler Jordan, General Manager

The Challenge

80% atmospheric vented boilers were being used, along with three 100 gallon storage tanks. The whole system was in bad shape, leaking, and needed to be replaced with a system that was more efficient with less storage.

The Intellihot Solution

A single Intellihot iQ751 paired with a hundred gallon of storage offers plenty of capacity during full occupancy on weekends and game days while the built-in 3X redundancy increased the overall system reliability.
