Hello everyone,

I have been trying to model Water loop heat pump for a residential project
in Washington DC. I have modeled WSHP system through wizard mode and mend
it according to PC. The system has a cooling tower and three condensing
boiler to maintain the loop temperature. The issue with boiler consumption
which seems very low.

Please let me know what may be the reason.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Mayank:
I always seem to have low boiler consumption. Remember the boiler heats the loop, not the space. You may have a low loop temperature set such that the boiler is rarely needed.
I have two project in the Los Angeles are with WSHP that have NO boiler.
You may also have a very tight building, as well as low usage for heating.
All of the above.
