The COVID-19 era has created new risks for buildings, many of which have seen significantly lower occupancy and therefore water is not regularly running through their facilities. Stagnation can create a host of new problems and health concerns for building occupants. ASSE 1082 is a new standard that eliminates the need for mixing valves, while maintaining reliability and reducing Legionella risks. In this session, you’ll learn how the new ASSE 1082 standard can be integrated into water heater projects to reduce operating costs, save space and reduce the risks of Legionella.

Sridhar (Sri) Deivasigamani didn’t set out to create the first on-demand hot water heater. But, after returning home from a 30-hour flight only to find his basement completely flooded from a broken water heater, he knew a worthy challenge when he saw it. After mopping up the basement, the robotics engineer immediately started troubleshooting his water heater. By sunrise, he had the idea for what would become the first on-demand, tankless commercial water heater. Today, Intellihot boasts several large-scale clients including Levi's® Stadium, home of the San Francisco 49ers, 340 on the Park, Chicago’s second tallest residential building, and Hilton Hotels. The success of Intellihot continues to flourish, with revenue growing in excess of 100 percent year-over-year. The company now employs 50 people in both Galesburg and Peoria, and continues to secure key partnerships nationwide. Prior to founding Intellihot, Sri spent ten years at Caterpillar as a mechanical engineer with a focus on marine engines and control systems. He holds a bachelor’s degree from Manipal Institute of Technology, India and a master’s degree in Mechanical Engineering from Clemson University. Sri envisions a future of extraordinary efficiency, where not a watt of energy or drop of water is wasted. In his spare time, he likes to work on motorcycles and robotic lawnmowers.


Intellihot Intellihot designs, manufactures and assembles tankless water heaters for residential, commercial and industrial applications — the first to do so entirely in the United States. Quality and innovation are at the heart of all its products, which were developed following years of extensive research. The company continues to be recognized for its innovative design; it currently has more than 60 awarded and pending patents.
