Existing Conditions

Domestic Hot Water is currently being supplied to the building at xxx°C (xxx°F).  Although many people like it this hot, it is much hotter than necessary.  In fact, many jurisdictions legally require DHW to be much cooler, to minimize the risk of accidental scalding.

Retrofit Conditions

The aquastatic control should be set for 49°C (120°F), which is the maximum allowed in many jurisdictions.
