My first idea about my thesis was about doing a system that can save energy to an old house. In order to do this, I would choose and old house, situated in my hometown and I would compute all calculations and needs to achieve a good Underfloor Heating and Cooling system. How? On the one hand, I would explain how these systems work. I would try to clarify all the components and its behavior in an underfloor system (type of system, underfloor layers, covers, etc. This would be the theoretical part of my thesis. On the other hand, in order to compute all the system, I would provide a building description. I would realize all the layouts to understand and explain better how it is. (Building dimensions, rooms and enclosures, glass positions, glass dimensions…). Then I would develop and study of winter and summer thermal loads which would make me capable to go further to dimensioning. Once I get this, I would size all the system. I would compute coils –with its characteristic curves-, design of the fluid temperature, water discharge, circuit length and manifolds sizing, pressure drop and finally, boiler and its performance. To do this, the thesis will be regulated by Spanish regulations because the house is in Spain. To this end, the requirements of current regulations have been met: the Building Technical Code (CTE), the Regulation for Thermal Installations (RITE) and the radiant floor design regulations (UNE-EN-1264).
