Single-family housing

Above all, a home represents the preferences and desires of the people who live in it. Professionals such as contractors and developers must satisfy these criteria whilst at the same time optimising the energy consumption of buildings.
COMAP has a wide range of solutions that allow them to offer economical, durable and customisable system components.

Generator parts

Generators in single-family housing generally include hydraulic distribution functions. Here, we present a system with two generators: a climate-control generator (monobloc heat pump) and a separate tank-type water heater.

Heat pump

In-wall gas boiler

Floor-mounted boiler with built-in tank

Interfaces

The more elaborate functional components are generally already included with the generator.
Depending on the emitter type (underfloor heating or radiator), manifolds that control distribution are either simple splitters or control assemblies.

Radiators

Low-temperature underfloor heating (LTUH)

Sanitary

Balancing

In detached dwellings, balancing must be done on heating systems.

  • For radiators: Ballorex 750 valves may be installed on each branch of the network and a control fitting from the COMAP range may be installed on each radiator. A complex installation, with more than four branches, will be more efficient with Ballorex Delta differential pressure control valves (DPCV).
  • For underfloor heating: a Ballorex 750 valve may be installed on each Biofloor manifold assembly.

Regulation and parts for emitters

The choice of emitters and their parts is particularly important in single-family housing. Occupants want to be able  to manage their energy consumption automatically and simply while they enjoy the comfort appropriate to their lifestyle.

Low-temperature underfloor heating (LTUH)

  • The complete OPTIMA system from the Biofloor range allows you to put in place a whole LTUH installation.
  • The Biofloor 9000TP system of modular manifolds acts as an interface - see (2) - as well as temperature control within each room, with its wireless control feature.
  • If radiators are also installed, the COMAP 9100 kit enables both networks to be easily managed at different temperatures (the low-temperature underfloor heating system functions at about 38°, while radiators function at about 50°).

Radiators

Secondary networks

In single-family housing, appearance is important when choosing products, particularly where networks are exposed to view.

Radiator heating 

  • Networks that are encased in slabs may be constructed with COMAP BetaPex pre-isolated pipe (Ø12) and PexPress press-fittings.
  • Exposed networks may be constructed with COMAP MultiSkin pre-insulated pipe (Ø14) and SkinPress press-fittings for multilayer pipe.
  • Connection to thermostatic valves may be performed with COMAP 835 compression fittings for a copper-pipe system.

Sanitary 

  • Networks that are encased in slabs may be constructed with COMAP BetaPex pre-isolated pipe (Ø12, 16 or 20, depending on use) and PexPress press-fittings.
  • Exposed networks may be constructed with COMAP MultiSkin  pipe (Ø16) and SkinPress press-fittings for multilayer pipe.
  • The system may easily be connected to PEX networks with COMAP's exclusive couplers.

Water treatment and quality

A transporter of energy in heating and air-conditioning systems, water is both consumed and used in other ways. Its quality must be excellent.  Water treatment preserves networks while delivering high-quality water for domestic uses and consumption.

COMAP offers products for water quality and treatment suitable for single-family homes : softeners and physical anti-scale devices, filters, and multi-function water-treatment units.

Multifunction units are particularly recommended for detached homes.

The COMAP 5-in-1 multi-function unit (link: http://www.comapwt.com/produits/18-centrale-5-en-1-pro.html) uses no chemicals. In one unit, it performs five functions that combine to protect the network and deliver healthy water. It stops scaling, neutralises particles, improves the flavour of the water by removing the disagreeable taste of chlorine, reduces bacteria and pesticides and disinfects.
