Two iQ751s, One iQ251
Zero Gallons storage
Intellihot chosen as a value-engineering option for this new hotel.
The engineers of this new Fairfield Inn & Suites property were looking for a value-engineering option for the water heating system of this new hotel to keep construction costs within budget. Intellihot was able to deliver an energy-efficient solution that provided significant CapEx and OpEx savings.
Conveniently located just a short drive from Syracuse University, this Marriott brand property is one of the newest hotels in Syracuse. During their stay, guests can enjoy a complimentary breakfast buffet, indoor pool and a 24-hour fitness center. The hotel also includes on-site laundry and valet dry-cleaning.
The Intellihot solution meets all the demands of Domestic Hot Water (DHW) and Laundry, through an innovative design that contains two floor units for DHW and a wall unit for the laundry. The three units are connected so that there is never any interruption in the hot water supply to the building.
The original plumbing plan called for two water heaters with storage tanks, but neither the budget nor the mechanical room could accommodate the cost and space that the equipment would have required. The crew was on the hunt for a value-engineering option that would also solve their square footage issue.
The Intellihot Solution
Two iQ751’s and one iQ251 were purchased as a value-engineering effort. The two iQ751s formed the primary loop and one iQ251 wall-hung unit was installed to boost temperatures from the primary loop for the hotel’s laundry. Intellihot’s innovative solution reduced the CapEx of the hotel, and saved valuable space in the mechanical room.
