SAV Systems support the development of heat networks
In 2014 a social housing project led by Places for People began the transformation at Harvesters Way, Wester Hailes, Edinburgh, into a mix of social and private housing with 183 units. It was decided early on to serve all dwellings using a heat network, fed from one central plant room.
Simply put, heat networks are used to deliver hot water to the taps and radiators within housing developments. The lower the temperature of the primary circuits, the lower the unit cost of heat. At Harvesters Way, Wester Hailes, Edinburgh, 70˚C is the temperature of plant room supply to each dwelling, whereas 40˚C is that of the return, both of which can be regarded as low by industry standards. The result is a remarkably modest heat tariff of 3.7 p/kWh.
