|Gas combination systems (boost systems)|
|As our energy resources decrease, energy prices increase, this leads many New Zealanders to re-think their personal home economy strategies. Energy consumption is a big part of our spend on a monthly basis. Whether its necessities such as hot water for a shower and heating your home or entertainment such as spas and pools Energy is not cheap!|
|It’s doesn’t matter whether your building a new home or just renovating, it’s always a good idea to closely look at your energy demand and requirements finding the most efficient solution for you and you family. The following questions need to be asked:|
- How much energy do “we” consume and how high is my energy bill?
- Should I be looking at cheaper ways to heat my home, which could include my hot water demand?
- Can I utilise free energy and combine this with existing systems easy to use?
- Is it possible to reduce my energy bill by spending the same amount I would installing a conventional system?
|Euro Plumbing can advise on specialised gas combination systems that can include:|
- Domestic hot water heating
- Underfloor Heating
- Hydronic Central Heating
- Wetback Heating
- Solar water heating
|To demonstrate one gas boost combination system, the following design includes Solar, underfloor heating (Spa or Radiators), a hot water cylinder and Gas booster (for information on gas boosters please follow this link CLICK HERE |
|This system will use the sun as its primary heat source (free energy), if no UV is available the control system will automatically demand energy from your gas water heater to compensate the difference in demand. Gas being cheaper than power makes this method of heating very desirable saving you up to 60% on your electric power bill.|
|On colder days (or on demand) your gas water heater will automatically switch over and heat your Floor, radiators, spa, pool etc. always prioritising your domestic demand.|| |
- The gas heater is heating a coil in the solar water cylinder.
- The gas heater is triggered by a circulating pump.
- The pump operates when additional heat is required.
|Advantages: higher flow rate and a central energy management.|
|Common applications: combination of solar and underfloor heating, radiators or central heating both for residential and semi commercial.|
