A solution for storing excess heat energy
When sizing a heating appliance, we usually choose a power output that will meet the heating demand, even in the most adverse weather conditions, which means very low outside temperatures. Low temperatures typically last for a few days, but for most of the heating season they are above freezing. Under these conditions, the heating devices operate up to 60 % or less of their rated power, resulting in less efficient operation.
If a heat store is built into the system, the operation of the heating appliances can be optimised, meaning that they operate at the power at which they are most efficient, and the heat produced is stored in the heat store and later fed to different consumers depending on the needs of the heating system.
do they need a heat store ?
Example of use
Heat storage with solar thermal system
If the excess heat has been stored in a heat store, it can be used to heat the domestic water for the next few cloudy days.
Example of use
Heat storage with solid fuel boiler
This way, we gain two benefits, namely:
- make the most of the energy,
- the desired room temperature is reached, as is used to with oil or gas boilers.
