The flues, a key element to guarantee the performance of your combustion heating installation
During renovation work, the reuse of flues requires a precise diagnosis. Most of the time, due to the characteristics of the new generator installed, the installation sees its smoke temperatures lowered (reduction of thermal draft). It is then essential that the installation checks the compatibility between the new heating generator envisaged and the existing flue. The dimensioning and verification of the compatibility of an existing duct must take into account numerous data: type, height, diameter, insulation, characteristics of the generator, etc. Its sizing is based on complex calculations described in standard NF EN 13384-1 and NF EN 13384-2. Conduits'Réno secures this key stage.
Conduits'Réno, a mobile application to easily validate technical choices on smoke structures
Conduits'Réno allows installers to easily validate their technical choices when renovating a combustion heating generator. This digital application can be used in individual houses and small boiler rooms with generators running on natural gas, fuel oil or wood. Free, it can be downloaded from the stores (App Store, Google Play).
Three major features offered
Sizing a flue in 12 steps
Conduits'Réno allows a simplified sizing of the smoke evacuation system in twelve steps with support throughout the entry. This functionality covers the main technologies of heating appliances (gas, wood) and flue systems: non-insulated and insulated masonry flue, single-wall and insulated metal flue, single-wall or insulated casing in an old flue, etc.
Conduct a technical audit for the replacement of a generator
Conduits'Réno also makes it possible to carry out a technical audit of the premises and of an existing conduit. This "field" diagnosis helps the installer to analyze the existing installation and to help identify any technical constraints that could prove to be blocking the installation of the future combustion appliance on the existing flue. or in the room.
Carry out a regulatory audit of the flue system
Finally, Conduits'Réno makes it possible to carry out a regulatory audit of a flue. Thanks to a personalized and guided field survey, the professional can identify non-compliances with the standards and regulations in force. He can also inform his client of the work to be done to remedy this.
At the end of the study, the professional can view and generate a detailed report in PDF format. He can transfer it, if he wishes, either to collaborators or to his client to justify his commercial proposal.
