Multifamily applications can be designed with multiple ecopower® units working in parallel. Up to three ecopower® units are controlled by a master unit. The architect / builder assesses the heating/hot water needs for the multi family building, and then specifies the needed number of ecopower® systems (and boiler backup) to support that need.

As shown in the hydronic diagram below, the ecopower® can support many individual living units. This modular concept is advantageous in multifamily buildings, as only the needed units are started to support the heating need. Conventional wisdom of large boilers to support a relatively small heat requirement is a waste of energy, and is being supplanted by smaller, high efficiency forms of energy generation.
