“The existing boilers and storage tanks were becoming a service nightmare, so it was time to replace them. The Intellihot technology of efficient and reliable units was installed, which freed up equipment room space and will provide energy and operational cost savings for years to come."

The Challenge

Their aging boiler and storage tanks were starting to fail and knew it was time to replace. Since they had used our units in a previous project, they decided to use Intellihot again because of efficiency and reliability.

The Intellihot Solution

Two iQ1001s and one iQ751 unit were installed providing reliability by offering built-in redundancy. With Intellihot’s highly efficient units, they eliminated the need for storage and enjoyed a reduction in their energy use.
