Thirty N-0841MC-DV natural gas units were installed to supply hot water to 184 guest rooms, a full kitchen and a laundry. The units were set up in two multi-systems. 20 of the units were set at 120 degrees for the guest rooms and 10 of the units were set at 140 degrees for the kitchen and laundry.
Originally the hotel had planned on installing boilers and storage tanks. Butch Pendegrass of Pendegrass Plumbing suggested a Noritz tankless system for its energy savings, space savings, simplicity of the system, redundancy and the fact that no boiler inspections were needed. The estimated energy savings for this hotel, compared to the original plans is about 12-15% annually.
