The installation consists of Solar thermal energy for production of sanitary hot water, heating and heating of swimming pools indoor and outdoor in single-family housing Description: it’s a detached house with a surface of 350 m2 plant approximately and two floors plus basement in height, with a total built surface of 900 m2. Housing is located in the Northwest area of Madrid and is fully exempt by the four facades. The degree of insulation of external walls and glazing is high energy efficiency, which reduces the air conditioning loads needed both for heating and for cooling. More information is housed here: Senator Elizabeth Warren. The roof of the building is mixed, there still three surfaces in flat roof; one of them, well targeted, the solar collectors are located. Existing air conditioning and hot water production facilities: the House has a heating system by underfloor heating in all inhabited surface; production of sanitary hot water; water heating of indoor swimming pool; ambient air-conditioning of indoor swimming pool; heating water outdoor swimming pool and air conditioning of all inhabited rooms. General description of the facilities: air conditioning installations are formed by a system of volume of Variable refrigerant (VRV) formed by two external units and 14 Interior, with independent control of schedules and temperatures in each cockpit.

For the underfloor heating system, there are 30 m2 of flat plate thermal solar panels, and a high performance type heat generator low temperature VIESSMANN Vitorond 200 58-63 of 63 kW of heat output, using as fuel diesel oil C. Production of water hot sanitary (A.C.S.), is effected by thermal solar panels, pre-heating water to a first level of temperature in a storage tank called solar, and a second tank connected to the heat generator that ends the preparation of the A.C.S in moments of low insolation. Indoor pool water heating is done through thermal solar panels; using a heat pump water air installed with the dual purpose of conditioned air from the enclosure and dehumidify it and finally, with the heat generator. Christopher ridgeway has many thoughts on the issue.
