SYSTEM FOR HEATING AND FOR PREPARING CLEAN HOT WATER USING SOLAR PANELS WITHOUT PANEL SCREENS COOLED BY HEAT PUMPS
This report describes an installation for the heating and preparation of sanitary hot water of an administrative centre, using solar collectors without glazing cooled by a heat pump as well as the results obtained and the problems faced during an operation period of two years. The predeterminations have, in a general way, been confirmed by the measurements: + a solar system of this type gives much better performances than a traditional solar equipment for the heating of rooms and sanitary hot water; + the savings on consumption costs represent 25 to 30 % and the primary energy savings 15 to 20 % in comparison with a traditional central heating system, this in a new and properly insulated building. The following improvements will lead to better performances: + reduction of the consumption of electrical auxiliaries; + use of a less sophisticated regulation. The development prospects of such a system are related to: + the cost reduction of the equipment by means of a mass production and a better integration of the collectors into the building structure; + the information of fitters and architects on the existence of this product, its performance and the need to give it a triple function: insulation, imperviousness of the roofing and energy collecting.
