DHPs in MF projects
5 Replies

I've got a 20-unit 3-story apartment project in Seattle that's evaluating using DHPs vs. tankless hydronic in each unit. I'm a big fan of DHPs but haven't seen them in a MF setting - can they all use…Continue

Multifamily Buildings

For too long there has been relatively little EE focus on multifamily, but some new programs have recently started. This group gives us a venue to share our experiences on cost effective audit & retrofit strategies and analysis tool needs.See More

"Yes, this can be done and is done.   Many of the ductless heat pump manufacturers have these types of units available. The most well-known is 'City-Multi" from Mitsubishi. The ratio of indoor units to outdoor units depends on the…"

"Thanks for the reply, David. You're right - it does boil down to whether they need individual metering or not. Mounting the compressors on the exterior probably won't fly, although I've seen photos of those too...in Europe, where they…"

"Not an answer to your question, but if you had a common compressor, wouldn't the building owner have to foot the heating bill? I've seen a photo or two showing outside units for individual mini-splits mounted on the exterior wall of a…"

I've got a 20-unit 3-story apartment project in Seattle that's evaluating using DHPs vs. tankless hydronic in each unit. I'm a big fan of DHPs but haven't seen them in a MF setting - can they all use a common condenser on the roof? Anybody done this?

Hi Pam,

Thanks for the message. I remember seeing your name when I started the certification class 2 years ago! I wanted the information from the course more than the certification because my intention was to incorporate some of the testing into a business I developed but haven't yet gotten off the ground, Greening Homes, which will be a consulting service for homeowners and home buyers. So, I haven't pursued practicing as an auditor. I recently moved from Bellevue to Sammamish and do hope to get very familiar with the Highlands and other new construction on the plateau so I can inform buyers why current codes and further energy/green improvements are beneficial in many ways. Since I have your ear, do you find that builders are requesting Energy Star certifications less now than in the past? I've heard that our codes are now very close to ES standards anyway.

Have a good day!

Alison
