Categorization of heat pump systems in multi-family buildings


The use of heat pump systems in apartment buildings is already being practiced, as many examples from several
countries show. Nevertheless, there is still no evidence pointing to a wider adoption of this solution for
heat supply due to both administrative and technical reasons. Within the framework of Annex 50, “Heat Pumps
in Multi-Family Buildings for space heating and DHW”, a concept was developed to categorize the possible solution
variants of heat pump systems in multi-family buildings on a higher level.
