The Hotel TRH Ciudad de Baeza has undertaken the remodelling of its fan-coil heating and DHW production system by installing high performance condensing boilers from the manufacturer Ygnis. The incorporation of these boilers has a very positive impact on the performance of the heating and DHW production units, as demonstrated by the consumption results obtained after two full seasons in operation. As illustrated below, the reduction in consumption brings with it a significant reduction in the hotel’s energy bill. The economic impact is such that in the space of 1.5 years, the installation investment has been paid for, taking the six-month heating period as the basis for calculating the amortisation.
The hotel had two 4,000-litre tanks for DHW, heated by four electric resistance units of 18 kW each with a total output of 72 kW. These tanks used to supply the fan-coils circuit for heating and the DHW circuit. The existing installation was located in a basement, with little available space and no flue gas outlet, thereby preventing the installation of any type of boiler irrespective of the fuel used, unless a completely new boiler room was built.Read more…
