Conventional heating systems in single-family houses and apartment buildings consist of a central heat source and central DHW production. Today, renovated or new buildings are obliged to make at least partial use of renewable energy sources. All buildings must comply with strict DHW hygiene regulations.
In nearly all cases, it makes financial sense to heat multiple apartments, buildings or houses via a central system rather than individually. Modern central heating systems can use buffer tanks to combine different energy sources.
Buildings with decentralized DHW production need only three rather than the usual five supply lines to provide hygienically safe drinking water. If the volume of water held between the water heater and the taps is less than 3 liters, no regular hygienic testing is required.
Each building and apartment has a directly connected substation or flat station with integrated production of domestic hot water. Single or multiple heating circuits (e.g. radiator, floor heating system) are supplied with heated water from the central heat source.
