With the latest edition of the Building Regulations due to be published on 15th June, it’s no surprise that Part L, Conservation of Fuel and Power, introduces tighter
targets for carbon emissions.

In the face of rising energy costs and the need to minimise carbon emissions, users with a high demand for domestic hot water (DHW) need to ensure their systems
deliver optimum performance.

Creating perfect storage conditions on 10,000 m² was the challenge at Del Fabro Kolarik's beverage logistics center in Vienna. Hoval's sophisticated hall climate
solution ensures evenly distributed and constant temperatures.

Did you know that 1 mm of scale in the boiler means 7% less heat transfer? At a time when energy savings are more relevant than ever, it is important to consider good
practices relating to water quality in heating networks, both in terms of design and installation and operation.

With energy costs spiralling upwards and the ever-present spectre of climate change it’s incumbent on all building owners and operators to eliminate energy wastage as
much as possible. One common area to assess is that of overheating, a common cause of excessive energy consumption that typically...

To say it’s essential to maintain good indoor air quality (IAQ) in workplaces is clearly stating the obvious. Good IAQ is essential for the health and comfort of
occupants and effective ventilation has been shown to reduce transmission of pathogens such as the Covid-19 virus.

Aside from the medical impacts of Covid 19, perhaps one of the most profound changes wrought by the virus is the introduction of more flexible working practices,
especially using technology to enable working from home. In truth, this was already happening in many office environments but it’s clear...

As we’ve noted before in this blog, there are strong moves to make wider use of hydrogen as a fuel for heating, to replace fossil fuels. Whilst the switch to 100%
hydrogen may still be some way off there is every chance that many heating systems will be burning some hydrogen in the very near future.

Sports halls have specific requirements due to ceiling height, variable occupancy and use rate of equipment. This means planners should favour a versatile and flexible
climate solution.This post explains how a decentralised ventilation system can generate an optimal level of thermal comfort in all seasons...

As the world looks for alternatives to burning fossil fuels in buildings and vehicles, hydrogen is rapidly becoming a favoured option for many such applications. At
Hoval, we believe this is the logical route to take for our boilers – ideally alongside other low carbon technologies.

More sustainable than gas, cheaper than oil, more suitable for old buildings than heat pumps – a pellet heating system scores in many ways. Sustainably produced
pellets make a good contribution to climate protection.

Maintenance of a heating and ventilation plant is necessary in order to comply with legislation and to keep equipment working reliably. Here, we discuss the range of
benefits that result from a sensible, tailored maintenance regime.

In November 2020, UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced a 10-point plan to provide a route map to net zero carbon by 2050. The second of these 10 points was to
‘drive the growth of low carbon hydrogen’ as an alternative to using fossil fuels for heating.

We're currently working on a number of indoor climate solution projects in the UK, so it's great to see completed projects from our colleagues like these ones in
Germany and Austria.

With this modern solution, which can be used to generate electricity and heat at the same time, energy is generated in a highly efficient and environmentally friendly
manner, thereby reducing the costs of building heating and electricity.

When it comes to designing ventilation and air-conditioning systems for logistics halls, the basic principles of flow mechanics always apply – regardless of the
specific requirements for the hall temperature.

Hybrid heating systems combine the benefits of several technologies in a single highly efficient, reliable and environmentally friendly system. In addition to the heat
generators, the heat distribution and system controls are particularly important components here.

Designed to last: this is the motto that drives the Hoval Group's research and development policy. The latest generation of condensing boiler has recently been
launched to the UK market and is blowing a new wind on the world of collective and industrial heating. UltraGas® 2 is the latest generation of gas boilers dedicated to
heating and producing sanitary hot water projects from 125 kW to 12 MW. The Hoval Group's Head of Heating Products, Gunther Kob, gives us the secrets of the
development of this new boiler.
