Appliance Repair Questions? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
Good evening, and welcome to the Technical section in JustAnswer. My name is ***** ***** I will help you today. There's no time pressure on this topic - it will stay open to you for many days, and you can reply at any time. I will be away from my desk sometimes, but will respond as soon as I can.I will just review your question and hopefully will be able to reply with the information you need.
In effect you want to operate the Super Star SF in summar mode, but all year round. This is possible, but you will need to provide a heat sink to dissipate excess energy from the boiler. It isn't possible to modify the SF to behave in any other way.The heat sink could be, for example, an additional coil in the hot water tank, or a separate hot water tank.
I don't quite understand the question. Surely you already have a hot water vessel of some kind. Are you thinking of retaining that and changing the heat source from boiler to ASHP? What is your plan?
If the cooker heats a tank now, then the size of the tank would be the same as the one you have now, or bigger. Or have I still not understood your question?The cost can vary widely. If you're installing this system yourself, then you'll need to shop around with your list of parameters and see what's available. If you're using an installer, then take their advice on the product that suits your needs. You haven't told me anything about your hot water usage, or your intentions with storing energy from the ASHP.
