If you are new to Building Management Systems, or you would like a refresher course, then look no further. In this article, we’ll be sharing our advice on heating curves.

What does Heating Curve mean? 

heating curve is a popular term used within the building management systems industry; it calculates an output result based on what has been inputted.  

A specific software is used to calculate the result, which will always rely on knowing the input that has been measured previously, as well as some basic correct settings.

For example; a heating curve can be measured using the boiler flow set point, frost valve set point, and more. There are other ways to measure a heating curve and you will often be able to notice them through the “set points”. This is because the software used, can calculate results through a set input, therefore creating a set output. 

To determine the result of a heating curve, a certain temperature for a system or circuit is required. 

For the calculation to compute correctly, it is vital that you set some parameters in the software you use. For example; these parameters could be input low and input high. Here are the settings for the control’s software: 

  • Input Low 
  • Input High 
  • Output Low 
  • Output High 
  • Maximum Out 
  • Minimum Out 

This way, they are labelled clearly, and the software will be able to program the results correctly.
