The investment costs for the new apartment block are high so it is all the more important to plan the entire project with precision. The developer must also consider that the new tenants in the many apartments will require heat for the heating system and hot water at quite different times, and peak loads will therefore fluctuate. Therefore, it is vital that the heat generators are perfectly coordinated.
The plot is already connected to the utilities and has a gas connection. For this reason, the developer decided to use this fuel to heat the building and supply it with hot water. Moreover, this type of heating system is excellent at compensating for the peak loads and varying hot water requirements mentioned above.
New buildings are legally required to cover at least part of their heating and hot water demands using renewable systems. The developer decides to use solar heat as a renewable heat generator. The roof is large enough and south-facing. The property is detached and not shaded by taller adjacent buildings. Therefore, the solar thermal system can be expected to produce an optimum yield.
The developer has made a good decision. The powerful condensing boiler ensures that the heating system and hot water generation work perfectly. The solar heating system provides backup, improves the ecological footprint of the systems and, last but not least, makes the project eligible for subsidy.
