Hot water

Atamate control the supply, storage and distribution of hot water

 

  • In a modern low-energy home, domestic hot water is often the largest energy expense.
  • Atamate controls can maximise the efficiency of any energy source and any water heating system.
  • Provision of hot water for anything from a basin to a swimming pool.
  • Occupancy-based circulation control limits internal heat gains while ensuring hot water is always available.
  • Atamate can manage hot water in a single home or in a large commercial or multi-dwelling building.

Regulatory compliance

Water temperatures are monitored throughout a building, which can generate reports to demonstrate compliance with relevant regulations. Minimising Legionella risk and complying with regulations in this area is also done using Atamate control.
