Size of hot water accumulators

  1. Nov 2, 2006 #1
    I'm looking for a way to estimate the size of hot water accumulators for residental buildings. I have made myself graphs describing the varying demand of hot water during a typical day, and then compared this to a graph describing the production rate of new hot water. This is according to a school book of mine, however I've not been able to get much sense out of it. If anybody knows of a good method I'll really appreciate it :)

    Here is a page with some useful information and conversion tools. My company still works in standard and not metric terminology, so if I give you my methods, it may confuse you. The site is in metric units.
