5 ways to a successful heat pump deployment – #5 Translate design intent into as built-performance

Blog series - Climate change plays a central role when making plans for a better future. And the decarbonisation of the public sector is top of the list.

We made it, the final one! The fifth and final thing to know to successful heat pump deployment. To show its support, the UK government is organising a third round of the Public Sector Decarbonisation Scheme. So, last but definitely not least, translating the design intent into as-built-performance! 

Getting it right from the get-go 

A much-overlooked aspect of delivering a successful low carbon heat installation is the correct selection of all different hydraulic system components – i.e. pumps, control valves, balancing valves… 

An innovative, high-cost technology, state of the art installation is nice to have, but don’t let it distract you from the rest of the installation. Often a lot of attention is focused on investing in the most efficient heat pump, if the rest of your system’s components (such as valves, pumps, etc.) are oversized or not optimised for the job.  

Luckily, we at Hysopt came up with a solution. With our HVAC digital twin, we help resolve this problem, firstly by precisely calculating the correct sizing and selection of each individual system component for the lowest energy use/carbon emissions within the optimised hydraulic design concept.  And trust us, it matters! Pump and valve selections are completely interdependent on one another and can require hundreds of thousands of calculations to get right.   

But our digital model doesn’t stop there. It also ensures that the information is shared with installers, along with details of how each of these components should be correctly commissioned. This both reduces costs and risk for both building owner and installer by speeding up the commissioning process, significantly increasing the changes of a “first time right” installation, and reducing the time and costs associated with correcting defects after hand-over.  

The created digital models are a shareable asset. This means you can travel with a project from inception through to completion and be continually evolved during a project by different stakeholders.  This provides continuity through all key project stages, as well providing a full digital dossier of the final as-built installation. Not only detailing what has been handed over, but also how the system performs!  

No more secrets
