In this article, I introduce the Continuity Equation, explain why it is important to know it and show the context of the continuity equation with an example calculation. Since this article refers to the article on volumetric flow rate and flow velocity, I recommend you to read it as well.[Read more…] about Continuity Equation with Example calculation
In this article I will explain to you how a thermostat, which is also called a thermostatic valve or thermostatic radiator valve, works, is constructed and what the differences are between conventional and electronic thermostats.
Important: However, first of all, it is necessary to make a differentiation for the term “thermostatic valve”, because a thermostatic valve consists of two components: the thermostatic head and the radiator valve.[Read more…] about How do Thermostatic Radiator Valves Work?
In this article I will review the smart radiator thermostat V3+ from tado° and have tested it in combination with the Alexa voice control. The version V3+ is the latest version of tado° and is also compatible with older tado° thermostats. The thermostats are suitable for new buildings but also for retrofitting in existing buildings.[Read more…] about Review: tado° Smart Radiator Thermostat V3+
In this article I introduce the volumetric flow rate and the flow velocity as further physical quantities and show you two examples how you can calculate them.[Read more…] about Volumetric Flow Rate and Flow Velocity
In this article I will explain what hydronic balancing is and which steps are necessary to balance a heating system. For the term hydronic balancing the term hydraulic balancing is often used. Hydraulic balancing is relatively simple.[Read more…] about What is hydronic balancing?
