Apartment Building Installation Example
Posted by Benoit Maneckjee on September 27, 2016
This summer also saw the installation of our commercial products in a 48 unit apartment building in Wolfville, Nova Scotia. This installation used three of our tandem 20 ton DX2W-3 modules connected to six 10 ton heat pumps outside. Water is heated or chilled by the heat pumps and stored in three 200 gallon buffer tanks from where it is injected into the system loop or used to heat or pre-heat domestic hot water all year round.

We supplied all the mechanical equipment in this installation with the exception of the ERV and will be monitoring all mechanical room operation remotely over the internet. Apartment buildings are excellent candidates for our products; call or email us if you have any possible opportunities.
