This session will focus on electrified hot water solutions for multifamily housing, with a particular focus on central multifamily design considerations for all electric hot water systems, including central air to water heat pump options, central VRF hot water plants, and distributed heat pump water heaters. This will include data on operation, and installation cost from a central CO2 air to water heat pump system in Ithaca, NY, and comparisons to other comparable systems. Session is a collaboration between Sustainable Comfort, Inc. and Taitem Engineering.
