DHW Storage

Postby Cormac Regan » Thu Jul 25, 2013 9:28 am


I am working on a model with oil fired boilers serving heating and a central.

I am getting an energy use of about 10kWh?m2 for the actual building and 2.76kWh/m2 for the notional building.

Does SBEM assume that the notional building will have domestic hot water produced by point of use heaters?

Yes... The notional building hot water supply has no storage or secondary circulation.
