Hot water heating systems and air conditioning

Ensuring comfortable temperatures in buildings

Hot water heating systems and air conditioning are commonly used to ensure comfortable temperatures in buildings.

The use of heat transfer liquids instead of inhibited water is linked with energy savings during shutdown. Many hot water systems are used to heat buildings, that do not require permanent heating. Typical examples are schools, churches, holiday homes etc.

When a proper heat transfer fluid is used, the entire system or parts of the system can be turned off, even when outside temperatures are below zero. Meanwhile, the system is ready to be started at any time. The mixture of a heat transfer fluid guarantees freeze protection and corrosion protection.

Heat transfer fluids have two basic functions in hot water heating systems and air conditioning:

  • Guaranteed freeze protection
  • Corrosion protection

For moderate climates such as Western Europe, freeze protection down to -20 °C is generally sufficient to protect the installation, even if the pipes are installed in the external walls. The use of our heat transfer fluids in floor heating systems has proven to be as successful as an antifreeze or corrosion inhibitor, even when plastic pipes such as those made from PE are used.
