Energy Efficient Residential Hot Water System Course

Domestic hot water and water use account for a large percentage of residential energy usage. In commercial buildings, the proportion of energy usage is smaller. However, there may be opportunities to significantly reduce hot water energy usage and achieve valuable overall savings. 

It might seem that domestic hot water systems are simple, but it requires a reasonably complex level of analysis and knowledge to maximize savings. 

Without a detailed understanding of hot water systems, you could be missing out on additional savings.

What You’ll Learn

  • The characteristics of different types of domestic hot water services.
  • How to assess the efficiency of a hot water system.
  • Ways of reducing energy and water usage.
  • How to do calculations related to hot water – and be tested on your ability to do these calculations
  • How to develop a robust business case for a domestic hot water system upgrade. 

Fundamentals of Energy Efficient Domestic Hot Water & Water Description

In this Energy Efficient Residential Hot Water System Course, you’ll learn the fundamentals of domestic hot water systems and how to reduce water usage. 

You’ll learn a systematic process for identifying hot water inefficiencies, how to use a Sankey diagram, and how to apply the energy efficiency hierarchy. The energy efficiency hierarchy helps you identify many opportunities, no matter what type of domestic hot water system. 

This Fundamentals of Energy Efficient Domestic Hot Water & Water course elaborates on practical concerns and issues associated with domestic hot water upgrades. It then guides you in preparing the business case for a hot water upgrade.
