The article presents the analysis of the hot water consumption in apartment buildings. This study was conducted basing on the data gathered from 626 apartments during two following years. By statistical analysis of the collected data, the correlation between the DHW consumption and both the size of the apartments and the number of occupants in the dwellings was evaluated. The dependencies between the hot water consumption and these two parameters were calculated. The results were compared to the data available in the literature. The article lists the areas of the greatest inaccuracies in the calculations basing on the available indicators and proposes an alternative method that corrects them. The results were used to develop a calculation model for daily hot water usage in multi-apartment buildings.
