Tankless water heater manufacturers are honing their offerings to make them a better fit for commercial applications, writes John McNally in pme magazine. “Eric Manzano, an engineering training specialist with Noritz, can see a day where larger commercial applications, such as a hospital, can use the technology,” McNally writes. “It will take some more innovation and expansion, but it is possible.” Manufacturers are evolving options such as Wi-Fi technology, rack systems that cascade multiple units, and more-sophisticated controls to make life easier for commercial building owners. Read the article below, and check out the behind-the-scenes video shoot where Building Science visits Rinnai to learn more about their commercial water heating technologies.
