Once we build a very high-performance building from the perspective of heating, cooling, and ventilation, and install high-efficiency lighting and plug loads, we are left with what to do about hot water. Hot water is a system: heater, distribution piping, plumbing fixtures and appliances, waste heat that runs down the drain. Overlay occupant behavior and then change technologies from what we are used to. To top it off, the way most of us were taught to design hot water systems is based on information that is more than 20 years out of date. This session will present practical measures you can incorporate into your next project that result in high-performance hot water systems and very satisfied customers.
