Can you please pass on our thanks to Martyn and his team for the excellent work that they have done for us this weekend. Despite challenging weather conditions they managed to complete the planned works in good time. We have test run the dryer this afternoon and all is good. Many thanks. Paul Taylor
Hot Water Pipework
Current building regulations require architects and building engineers to actively ensure that they reduce energy and increase the use of renewable sources of energy.
The energy saving that can be achieved on the hot water services pipework can have a huge impact on the total energy reduction of a building than most other services.
The conventional method of distributing hot water throughout a building is that of a ‘flow & return’ system of re-circulated DHWS. The design criteria of the flow & return system is simply the temperature of the water at the tap outlet, the system is not energy efficient and has significant heat losses.
A modern solution to hot water distribution:
The “Cross” hot water temperature maintenance system (XEL-W) offers a simple solution to re-circulation systems. Combining hot water comfort with economy, the self-regulating heating cable on a single-pipe delivery system compensates for the heat loss of the water in the pipe and ensures hot water is delivered at the desired temperature all the way to the HWS outlet.
The system has 50% less pipe work, delivering hot water to every outlet at the desired temperature. The “Cross” XEL-W system is specifically designed for this application and can provide considerable energy reductions.
The “Cross” XEL-W system provides hot-water to every outlet, by the most energy efficient means and can be installed in hospitals, convalescent homes, sports centres, hotels, family housing and apartments, etc.
XEL-W heating cables can also be installed to existing systems providing instant hot water at every outlet without running off gallons of cold water, making the system more energy efficient.
