The weather makes the main influence on the heat demand of a building. In cold periods the building requires more heating, and vice versa when the breezes in the surroundings are warmer.The weather constantly changes, and so does the heat load required to warm up a house. Compensating for the weather influence is hence a rational and sound way to achieve energy savings. Our electronic controllers with weather compensation help you achieve such energy savings through intelligent heating control!Weather Compensation in District Heating SystemsThe optimum heat supply to a building is when the demand is met and nothing is in excess. An intelligent electronic controller for weather compensation in the heating system can pro-actively adjust the supply of heat to keep it at exactly that point by detecting changes in the weather conditions outside. In reverse, a heating system without a weather compensator will only react on the current indoor temperature, and thus be prone to be in delay when changes occur outside. This negatively affects both user comfort and energy efficiency.How does it work?The weather compensator gets its signal from an outdoor temperature sensor placed on the shadow side of the building. The sensor registers the actual temperature and the electronic controller adjusts, if necessary, the heat supply (flow temperature) to reflect the new conditions. The controller will also adjust the heat supply to the radiators and ensure that room temperatures are kept constant. The user will thereby not even notice that the weather has changed outside and experience the same temperature and comfort at all times. 10 - 40% Energy Savings with Electronic Weather CompensationA report by COWI, a leading environmental science consulting group, puts the estimated energy savings with electronic weather compensators in one-family houses at 10% and in some cases as much as 40%. According to the report, one-family houses with large heat consumption gain particularly fast returns on investment after installing electronic weather compensators.Besides this, legislative regulations for multi-family and commercial buildings prescribe weather compensation. In more and more countries, this also applies to one-family houses.A heating system with electronic weather compensation can have additional control functions, such as:
Systems with weather compensation are mainly used in radiator and floor heating systems.
With Electronic Controllers for District Heating. Danfoss is proud to introduce the seventh generation of electronic controllers for district heating. Based on the success and benefits of previous generations, the Danfoss electronic weather compensators ECL Comfort 210 and 310 will ensure comfort and convenience for heating, cooling and domestic hot water systems
