2.3.3 Installation of a heat recovery in the condensers of the air conditioning system

2.3.3 Installation of a heat recovery in the condensers of the air conditioning system

Description

In the cooling systems, the heat produced by the condenser can be reused through heat exchangers for the DHW production. This exploitation can be not only a significant energy saving for the production of DHW, but also a reduction in the electric consumption of the air conditioning equipment.

Benefits

  • The saving potential is low. Some HVAC/DHW equipment have already integrated such a measure

Limitations

  • Only applicable for those buildings with mechanical cooling

Economic assessment

The cost is variable, but it can be low and affordable.
