custom hot water load functionality has been built for experts with a
firm understanding of
sizing hot water systems, to enable advanced capabilities beyond the multifamily sizing available in
the standard Ecosizer.
The load shape here should represent the peak hot water
loads not the
averages – designing to the
average load can lead to a significantly undersized system.
