The savings are approximate. No guarantee is given for the correctness of the results. The calculation is only intended to illustrate the possible savings.
The actual savings depend on a number of parameters, such as the existing fabric of the building, the location of the building and users’ habits.
The energy requirement was calculated based on the age of the building and average consumption values. Renovations already completed can have a significant impact on the actual final energy requirement and therefore affect the potential savings. An extensive calculation by a specialist designer which takes the local circumstances into account is required to transfer the figures to a specific project.
It is assumed that the room temperature produced by the central heating is reduced by the calculated value throughout the entire heating period and that the ERFURT-KlimaTec FH 300 PRO surface heating system is only used for heating when required. A flat-rate 6% lower heating energy requirement was considered for each degree °C reduction for the saving. The better the insulation standard, the lower the potential savings, as the impact of internal and solar gains is then greater.
Bear in mind that the room temperature should not be lowered below 17° C.
We recommend fitting ERFURT-KlimaTec IP 2500+ or IP 3500+ interior insulation plates under the surface heating system to obtain optimum thermal radiation in the room.
