A Shift In Strategy
Meeting Domestic Hot Water Demand With Storage
Traditional hot water delivery systems rely on
high-capacity boilers to meet demand. The trend
of oversizing these systems results in wasted energy.
WaterDrop uses an array of highly efficient SANCO2
heat pumps to build up a high storage volume to meet
During periods of low use, the heat pumps produce more hot
water than is being used. The excess hot water goes back into the storage. Once the storage is fully recovered, the stored hot water is
on standby, ready for the cycle to repeat.
Choosing the Right Model
WaterDrop systems were born from a collaboration with Ecotope and a desire to provide a complete drop-in system for whole building water heating. WaterDrop designs are heavily centered around using Ecotope's Ecosizer software. This is available to everyone and is a good way to get a head start on knowing what size system you will need.
