[Equest-users] circ loop multiplier?

Why can't you simply use one massive DHW heater? Unless you have different dynmaics for each apartment. The DHW will only effect the DHW load and not space conditioning. The circ loops for apartments, I would think, are small and can vitually be ignored except for default values.

Subject: [Equest-users] circ loop multiplier?

I’m modeling a 124-unit multifamily building, and each unit has an electric DHW Heater. I do not want to create 124 DHW loops, but I’m not seeing a multiplier for circ loops. My other option is to model it as an electric process load,  but my concern is that no DHW use in the output report will be highlighted by the reviewer. 
Any thoughts?
