The merits of heating system renovation

A few examples how a good engineering thought and professional work can change a consumers life:

BEFOREAFTER
Klaipeda district. 2 story house, built in 1975 from sylicate brick. 127 m². The boiler room was renovated – new solid fuel furnace, accumulation tank, fully automatic temperature regulation, supply and hot water preparation.
  • Heating – solid fuel.
  • Heating equipment – cast iron radiators
  • 17 m³ of wood burned during the season
  • Water heated using an electrical heating unit during the summer
  • Temperature changes between furnace firings – between 15 and 25 degrees
  • Frequency of firings – 2-3 times per day
  • Heating and hot water preparation - solid fuel
  • Heating equipment – cast iron radiators
  • 12 m³ of wood burned during the season
  • After firing the furnace once – a weeks supply of hot water for the summer
  • No temperature fluctuations – the temperature is constant
  • Frequency of firings – once in 2-3 days
BEFOREAFTER
Lazdijai district. Rural tourism homestead first used in 2006. The boiler room has been modernised. Solid fuel furnace, 2 accumulation tanks, fully automatic temperature regulation, supply and hot water preparation. 6 solar panels.
  • Unpredictable amount and periodicity of guests
  • A pool in the homestead
  • When the homestead is empty – a constand 12 degrees inside
  • When guests arrive, the demand for heat and hot water is very large
  • During the summer, hot water is fully prepared and pool is initially heated.
  • During the winter, when the guests arive, the amount of energy in the accumulation tanks lets the consumer prepare a lot of hot water without distrupting heat supply to the room.

CONCLUSION: after correctly completing and professionaly installing the furnace room equipment, during the summer hot water preparation costs nothing and during the winter guest comfort is guaranteed.

BEFOREAFTER
Vilnius. 2 story, 6 flat apartament building built in 1982. 109 m² flat. The ceiling height is 3 m. Heating system has been renovated – new economical furnace, floor heating the whole apartment.
  • Heating – gas furnace
  • Hot water preparation – gas pump
  • Heating equipment – tin radiators
  • Up to 4000 m³ of gas used during the season
  • Both gas devices are installed in the kitchen and take up about 4 m² of space.
  • The owners are complaining – although gas usage is high, the maximum temperature in the flat during the winter is 17 degrees.
  • Heating – automatic gas furnace, which prepares hot water
  • Heating equipment – heated floors with thermostats in the rooms
  • Up to 3200 m³ of gas used during the season
  • The furnace has been installed in another room, which let the owners have 4 m² of kitchen space back
  • Comfortable temperature sustained in the apartment for the whole winter.

CONCLUSION: After correctly completing and professionally installing the heating system, a 20% increase in fuel economy can be observed and the desired level of comfort has been achieved.

BEFOREAFTER
Vilnius. 2 story house built in 1999. 270 m². The boiler room has been modernised. An accumulation tank has been installed, which lets the gas furnace work at the optimal parameters ant can collect heat generated by solar panels. Hot water is prepared in the tank.
  • Heating – gas furnace
  • The owners are complaining that the furnace is not working efficiently and using up too much gas.
  • Up to 4000 m³ of gas used during a season
  • Gas consumption down by 12 percent.

CONCLUSION: After correctly completing and professionally installing the heating system, a 12% increase in fuel economy can be observed and the possibility of preparing hot water using solar panels during the summer is availible.

The lesson:

Not separate products, but rightful engineering solutions save you money, guarantee a safe and comfortable life.
