Intellihot Tankless Technology Supplies 62-Story, LEED-Certified High Rise
Intellihot Brings Efficient Tankless Water Heating to a New Frontier
By: Intellihot Green Technologies Inc
Intellihot’s on-demand water heaters do not require storage tanks. They heat water only when it is needed, thereby reducing energy waste and floor space needs arising from conventional tanks or tank-boiler systems. Intellihot’
Intellihot founder and CEO Sridhar Deivasigamani states, “tankless water heaters have become popular in many parts of the world because of the significant energy savings they offer. However, due to some limitations of the technology, they have not been successful in commercial and industrial applications. We have designed a new type of on-demand water heater that enables widespread use from a small multifamily to an extremely large hotel or hospitals. We are taking the technology where it has not gone before.”
Completed in 2007, “340 On the Park” is the second tallest all-residential building in Chicago (at 672 feet (205 meters) with 62 floors. It is the first residential tower in the Midwestern United States to achieve Silver LEED certification for its "green" design, including a large winter garden for residents.
The building’s manager, Amy Eickhoff, states, “At ‘340 On the Park’, we pride ourselves on offering our residents the finest amenities and the best technology, including energy savings that advance our Silver LEED certification. When we initially heard about Intellihot, we were intrigued by the potential energy savings, but we were also skeptical. On-demand technology was not known to be capable of serving high-rises. We have been very pleased with the installation and performance of the system and proud to be at the forefront of demonstrating an energy-efficiency breakthrough in the building community. Any building that has a domestic hot water boiler capital project in the future should be considering Intellihot.”
