For the supplementary or additional insulation with the support for the heat accumulator tank on the second floor, for this purpose you have to require that the external wall of your home will be framed in with 2×6-studs, so what is your concept about the interior division of living space, you can also add a window that you think that is the right place for fixing. However the central supporting wall and bearing beam should remain directly over the main carrier beam in the basement area of your home.
A Conventional Solar DHW System:
A basic closed loop system is used to yielding energy from the sunlight. There is a small pump which is used to circulate and regulate the water/glycol solution from the collector to a heat transfer coil; it is inside a steel energy accumulator tank. This pressurized tank holds preheat water when a conventional DHW system needed. When the differential temperature rises then take a look that how heat is changing near the bottom of the tank where the heat is collected and stored. The hot water in the tank where it rises is convey to another place from the top area of the tank and then remain there to get more heat from the fossil fuel heating system. The power which is used to run and regulate the pump is minimum in duration.
MTD Heat Storage:
Household and domestic solar hot water system used just preheats water only for the conventional fossil fuel system. If we used to get better result from the process then we should get a side the fossil fuel heating system all together. So that we could be able to increase the preheat idea or imagination. To bring this idea into practical an open loop, multi tank solar heating system for the preheat concept is better and has benefited for this intention. Because it doesn’t need excessive heat exchange coils to convey heat from one tank to another? Turbulence (having irregular variation during the course of time) has disastrous effects of mixing hot and cold water layer to some limit.
And the process of turbulence is caused by the flowing water through the tank. To prevail over this condition and maintain heat stratification, PVC pipes are used to solve this problem; PVC pipes hold the coldest water from the preceding tank and convey this cold water to the near and adjacent tanks. This process is benefit and permits this cold water to be returned to the collector during the process the retaining hot water stage of transition in the tank become continuously flow and make gradation. Although a MTD heating storage system is not very important it will make better the process of heat transfer capability of any hydro solar heating system.
Now we shall see the MTD-3 tank heat exchange system. The tank which obtains hot water from the MTD collector will always be the hottest tank first. The cold water is siphoned from the bottom of the hot tank and discharged near the upper area of the warm tank. The warm water regulates the same process. It conveys its coldest water to the cold tank. At the bottom of the tank, there is also a pump which returns this cold water to the collector for reheated again. This MTD system is design such a way to obtain maximum energy and heat extraction forcefully with minimum cost and energy. Anyhow we now understand the entire process that how the heat can be stored, but the question is arise in the mind that if we require heat then how the tank like this is used to distribute and provided the heat throughout the house
Heat Storage and Transfer:
When we need to provide heat to our home a device, thermostat turn on P2. Hot water is circulated through plastic heat transfer pipes which are fixed firmly in a radiant floor heating system on the first floor. If we take a look and noticed that the hottest water from the hottest tank is used first and from the warm tank is used second and such a process continuously regulate in this way. The level of the water in the cold tank and also in the hot tank will always be closed to the large extent. And the power which is require to run this pump will be minimum in duration it mean a ‘minimal’. This concept and idea is better but I am not sure that three tanks will be enough to keep the heat that I require.
And how about the domestic household water? Certainly it is right that these three tanks are not fulfilling my household requirements. 32 tanks in place of three tanks can be enough for my need and it is also better idea for the well insulated house. So the question is rising that in which place will you keep these tanks, they require enough space. And how about the second floor? We must seriously think about this concept to solve our problem.
