THE MOST EFFICIENT LOW TEMPERATURE MYTH – Holding versus Minimum Temperature strategies – POLITO

THE MOST EFFICIENT LOW TEMPERATURE MYTH – Holding versus Minimum Temperature strategies – POLITO

Which is the best temperature a resident should set its apartment heating system when it is outside? For decades thermal-technicians suggested to not completely switch off the heating system because the re-heating process would have consumed a lot of energy. They suggested a low temperature in between 16° and 18°C, without providing any rational mean […]

Politecnico di Milano Experimentation on Radiators Change of Thermal Patterns w.r.t. the Relative Position of Inlet and Outlet Pipes

Politecnico di Milano Experimentation on Radiators Change of Thermal Patterns w.r.t. the Relative Position of Inlet and Outlet Pipes

This is the presentation of a very rigorous experimentation research carried on by Politecnico di Milano highlighting the great changing on radiators thermal patterns with respect to the relative position of the inlet and outlet pipes (inlet high left, outlet down left; inlet low left, outlet low right for instance). The research does not come […]

CASSINO UNIVERSITY HCA TECHNIQUES EXPERIMENTATION ON REAL USE CASE

CASSINO UNIVERSITY HCA TECHNIQUES EXPERIMENTATION ON REAL USE CASE

A very interesting and rigorous experimentation done by the University of Cassino installing heat allocators in a building in which there were also mounted reference heat meters for each radiator. This research found out typical errors of heat cost allocators around 9% and 40% as maximum. Even worst other heat cost allocation techniques for vertical […]
