Intellihot upgrades the water heaters in this hotel with zero interruption of service.

The management needed to replace the old water heating equipment at this busy hotel, but wanted to avoid a costly shutdown during the change out. Intellihot provided an efficient option that required zero interruption of service.

Just one mile from the busy Mineta San Jose International Airport, this Fairfield Inn & Suites includes various amenities such as a heated outdoor pool, a hot tub, a fitness center, and on-site laundry. The property also features a complimentary breakfast buffet, a convenience store, a business center, and two spacious event rooms for its patrons.

The hotel’s old water heating equipment was comprised of two 400,000 BTUH heaters and 120 gallons storage tank. In addition to frequent maintenance issues, they also had to use mixing valves to deliver the hot water to their guests at the right temperature.

The Challenge

The hotel’s management was ready to replace their current, outdated water heaters with robust equipment that would eliminate the need for expensive and unreliable mixing valves. They were not, however, prepared to shut down operations for the change out. Downtime would mean service interruption and loss of income.

The Intellihot Solution

One iQ1001 was installed and operational in no time, providing a much needed upgrade. With precise temperature controls, Intellihot’s tankless unit also eliminated the hotel’s mixing valve dependency. Most importantly, the change-out involved zero interruption to the hot water in the building.
