Comment: The heat pump solution will only be valid if the climate is favourable (mild winters). Allowance must be made for the heat pump not to MER_WE_DD3220
work in the winter, which means that the electrical heaters must be capable of providing the full heating requirement. These heaters will normally be
incorporated in the items of equipment: the fan-coil units shall therefore have an electrical heater that is capable of heating the bedroom in the
coldest part of the winter. The same applies to the AHUs. The independence of the zones in the general services must be ensured: the number of
AHUs shall be selected to suit the final design.

A: The electrical connection to the FCUs shall normally be made from a mini-distribution board (local consumer unit in the bedroom)
B: The change-over cable shall be live when the FCU is being fed with chilled water. If the cable is 220V, there must be a mechanical connection to
link the 220V supply to the FCU and the 220V supply to the relay: if the FCU is turned off, the supply to the relay must also be cut off (for safety
reasons: if the FCU is isolated, the small relay might be forgotten). Another possibility is for a 48 VDC supply to these relays, which is a safe voltage.

Note: The capacity of the electrical heater shall normally be approx. 600 W when there is a gas boiler or district heating, etc. On the other hand, if
there is a heat pump, the electrical heater must be sized to allow for the possible failure of the heat pump (so generally > 1 kW).
