You will recognise situations, maybe from your own experience, where it’s impossible to heat whole sections of buildings adequately, or where there are rooms that are too hot and the windows need opening even in winter, or cooling installations that consume lots of energy without providing sufficient cooling. All of this is mainly due to the stubborn behaviour of hot and cold water in the building’s pipes.
Higher installation cost and energy consumption
The traditional approach to making calculations for user comfort and energy requirement – the correct installation of heating and cooling systems – is usually done in Excel, and includes a margin that is big enough to avoid any uncertainty and risk. Even if this results in your installation working comfortably, this method means it will always be over-dimensioned, with a higher installation cost and higher energy consumption as a consequence.
