Question: Is the heating pump’s delivery head the same as the height of the building?


These days, heating systems are designed as hydraulically closed systems. This means that the building height need not be taken into account when designing the pump.

When determining the delivery head for heating pumps, the critical factor is the pipework resistance, including all individual resistances, such as that of e.g. fittings and bends.
