The hot water system design guide for commercial kitchens provides key information to restaurant designers and engineers to achieve superior performance and energy efficiency with
their systems. This guide reviews the fundamentals of commercial water heating and describes the design process, including (1) reducing hot water use of equipment while maintaining
performance; (2) increasing the efficiency of water heaters and distribution systems; (3) improving hot water delivery performance; and (4) incorporating “free-heating”
technologies, such as waste heat recovery and solar pre-heating.
