On Demand: Understanding Structured Plumbing & Demand Controlled Systems

On Demand: Understanding Structured Plumbing & Demand Controlled Systems

to take this course

Water and energy are precious resources, and, unfortunately, traditional hot water distribution systems only waste them. Join us in this one-hour course as we discuss how the distribution of hot water directly impacts energy use, water consumption, and waste. We will focus on the most efficient hot water distribution system: on-demand hot water controls. By the end of this course, you will be able to differentiate between commercial and residential structured plumbing design and discover how demand recirculation pumps improve water and energy efficiency and overall sustainability.

Learning Objectives: 
  1. Explain structured plumbing with demand controls, focusing on its ability to reduce water and energy waste
  2. Compare and contrast different hot water distribution systems and their impact on installers, occupants, and the environment
  3. List the water and energy benefits and savings of on-demand pump controls not found in other hot water distribution strategies
  4. Describe residential and commercial/multifamily applications with on-demand pump technology
