Event Description

This event is free, but registration is required.

Homeowners with natural gas water heaters have difficulty justifying the expense of a more efficient condensing heater. Combination space and domestic hot water systems bundle together the two loads, which saves energy and makes them more cost-effective. These systems also help eliminate combustion safety concerns.

Watch these animations to learn more.

Historically, mechanical contractors have custom engineered and pieced together combi systems in the field, paying little attention to efficiency and optimization. But condensing heating plants will only reach their energy saving potential when all components are designed and installed correctly.

Research Engineer Ben Schoenbauer will present lab and field measurements of condensing boilers and water heaters matched with hydronic coil air handlers and distribution systems to optimize their performance.
