  • Energy, exergy, thermoeconomic and sustainability analyses of a building heating system with a combi–boiler

    The energy, exergy, thermoeconomic and sustainability analyses are applied to the building heating system with a natural gas–fired combi–boiler. The building area is considered as 90 m². Furthermore, the design and analysis of the natural gas installation of the building are done. Two different methodologies (Fine–HVAC and LowEx analyses) are used for energy analyses (heat loss and demand) of the ...

  • Somerset West Home Energy ECO pilot

    With the Green Deal fast approaching, the Centre for Sustainable Energy (CSE) is working in partnership with Scottish & Southern Energy (SSE) and the Somerset West partnership (consisting of Sedgemoor, Taunton Deane and West Somerset local authorities)  to test some of the key Green Deal mechanisms at a local level. Launched at the start of April, Somerset West Home Energy builds on a ...

  • Domestic heating systems are more efficient with Scalewatcher

    In hard water areas plumbing, hot water systems and appliances quickly become encrusted with limescale resulting in increasing energy bills and the early renewal of boilers and appliances.  The award-winning, patented, Scalewatcher water-conditioner, from Scalewatcher North America, offers a simple and permanent solution to limescale thereby reducing energy bills and making heating systems ...

  • Thermoeconomic considerations in the design and analysis of a finned heat sink array: the effect of material cost

    A detailed second-law based thermoeconomic optimisation is presented for a finned heat sink array. This involves including costs associated with material and irreversible losses due to heat transfer and pressure drop. The influence of important physical, geometrical and unit cost parameters on the overall finned array are optimised for some typical operating conditions that are representative of ...

  • The economics of an active solar heating system

    The American University of Armenia recently installed a shower system in the ground floor of its building. In this note we examine the economic viability of using an active solar system to heat the showers. Using conventional discounted cash flow analysis as well as two other economic assessments of the capital investment, we demonstrate that it is economically justifiable to invest in a solar ...

  • Price or performance?

    I can recall many occasions over the past 10 years where I have been called out and inspected a faulty underfloor heating installation, I discovered that the underfloor heating systems generally have been designed¬¬ on the border of normal operation to, I assume, reduce the overall amount of the materials required, and thereby make the cost for the project more attractive against rival companies, ...

  • Diffusion of innovative heating systems in detached homes in Sweden

    The Swedish homeowners' perception of Innovative Heating Systems (IHSs) was studied through a questionnaire survey. Most of the respondents were satisfied with their existing heating systems and were not planning to install a new one. They considered economic factors and functional reliability the most important factors in the choice of a heating system. Hence, economic policy instruments appear ...

  • Residential building electrical fires

    Electricity is a basic part of residential life in the United States. It provides the energy for most powered items in a contemporary home, from lights to heating systems to televisions. Today it is hard to imagine a residence without electricity. It is a part of our homes and our activities that most of us take for granted. We rarely think how powerful electricity is. Yet, using electricity can ...

  • Constructal theory of energy-system and environment flow configurations

    This paper outlines the place occupied by the constructal law in thermodynamics, and provides a vision of the future development of energy engineering as a transdisciplinary science of systems of systems. Natural and man-made flow systems do not exist in isolation. The optimal balance between engineered flow systems and their surroundings is achieved through the optimal distributing of ...

  • Single-plate thermoacoustic system: conjugate problem of inviscid flow

    In this paper, the energy transport, adjacent to a single-plate thermoacoustic system, is calculated analytically by simplifying and solving the governing differential equations. The thickness of the plate is considered to be nonzero, and the entire problem is treated as a conjugate heat transfer problem. A low Mach number inviscid model is derived from a first order perturbation analysis to ...
