Stokvis meets boom in communal heating

There is a rapid uptake of communal or district heating schemes, and Stokvis’ range of energy systems are suited to these types of project.

The R40 Evolution and R600 Evolution series represent the latest generation of Stokvis Energy Systems’ long-established and widely-specified boilers, which can be installed along with the manufacturer’s H Series heat interface units (HIUs) to supply heating and domestic hot water to individual dwellings.

The products are ideal for small apartments, where space is at a premium. Using the R40 and R600 Evolution boilers in centralised plant rooms provides a primary heat source for the HIU’s with an excellent efficiency while saving landlords the headache of gaining access for annual gas safety inspections and maintaining individual units in each flat. Instead, connecting heating circuits to Stokvis H Series HIUs ensures residents can enjoy DHW and space heating comfort around the clock.

It is vital that developers or building owners such as social housing providers understand the importance of accurate specification to meet the special requirements of communal heating systems: including calculating combined demand of multiple households, as well as sizing the boilers and the HIUs to suit.
