Testing out monitoring kit now that the house is less full of people. All works fine but installation was more organised than expected and all pulse meters are close together in services cupboard. this is a minor problem involving more wiring than expected.
Pulse block for gas meter has vanished so new one on order, and was tricky to get solarimeter into plane of solar array, along with location of external temp and RH so, a few more adjustments to the system will need to be made after the tenant has moved in and settled on furniture locations.
House open for visitors, all systems in and working, house looking good, just a few minor bits to do before hand over. About 30-40 visitors during the day, i would estimate, the services cupboard attracted most interest i would say
Met Romeo from Rotex who was commissioning Rotex unit, Billy the plumber was commissioning Maico unit also so the services cupboard was full.
rotex unit is not that easy to get calibrated, odd in that it doesn’t have a room thermostat.
Possible issue of oversizing of boiler in Rotex, apparently it winds down to 8kW but this is perhaps high given expected heat loss of house.
Shower waste water heat recovery unit in place, discussion about how they may be best used in swimming pool showers where flow of waste water is high but highly dependent on usage of hot water as to payback time…
house very nearly finished now.
