Hotel facilities are characterised by their huge consumption of domestic hot water (DHW), with very high peaks in consumption during extremely short periods of time. To meet these needs, hotels have traditionally had to resort to large volumes of accumulation to guarantee such moments of critical consumption.
However, maintaining this considerable quantity of water in readiness for peak times represents a high energy cost, requiring a large space in the boiler room with the associated health risks as regards the development of Legionella bacteria thanks to the high content of stored water.
The semi-instantaneous “Total Condensing” systems provide a solution to meet these demanding consumption needs in this type of establishments, working with technologies that result in a significant reduction in the accumulated volume and an increase in the overall performance of the facility compared with conventional DHW generation systems.
