[아파트관리신문=김선형 기자] The Seoul Metropolitan Government inspects sites vulnerable to heating damage in conjunction with public organizations and related associations in the energy sector and provides consultations to improve heating efficiency.

From the 7th of this month to the 31st of next month, the city formed a ‘public-private joint heating efficiency improvement support group’ with the Korea Energy Agency, the Korea Society of Energy Engineers, and the Association of Thermal Management Contractors Korea to target central heating, district heating, and individual heating apartments and detached houses Going to check with

Central heating is jointly inspected by apartment house experts

According to city data, there are a total of 118 apartment complexes and 106,478 households in centrally heated apartments in downtown Seoul, accounting for about 6.7% of all apartments in Seoul. In particular, there are many places with low energy efficiency after 20 years of building central heating type apartments.

Accordingly, the joint public-private heating efficiency improvement support team will inspect 75 complexes out of 98 apartment complexes completed before 2000, excluding the inspection complexes (23) of the Seoul Regional Headquarters of the Korea Energy Agency . The Korea Energy Agency and the Korea Society of Energy Engineers inspect loss factors such as ▲ old boiler body and pipes ▲ heat exchanger ▲valve, and directly check heat loss through a thermal imaging camera. After the inspection, corrective action is taken on the issues that can be improved immediately on site, and consultations are held on changes in operating conditions based on the results of air ratio measurement.

District heating takes into account the characteristics of each complex

The district heating complex carries out inspections such as ▲supply temperature and return temperature ▲pressure ▲differential pressure flow control valve operation ▲valve leakage and corrosion inspection ▲control system confirmation of normal operation and operating guidelines.

Currently, Seoul Energy Corporation, Korea District Heating Corporation, Narae Energy Service, and Daesung Industrial provide district heating to 650,000 homes in Seoul. District heating is provided to every home.

Through this inspection, Seoul Energy Corporation inspects 151 places in 30 complexes and promotes consultation for residential, business and public buildings.

The Korea District Heating Corporation plans to inspect 35 complexes in 24 complexes and conduct intensive counseling for 8 complexes where heat consumption increased by more than 30% between December and January.

For individual heating, counseling after individual home visits

For individual boiler heating facilities, which account for 53.4% ​​of heating homes in multi-family houses and the majority of single-family houses, visits to a total of 25 complexes are promoted in conjunction with the Association of Thermal Management Contractors Korea, autonomous region diagnosis consultants, and autonomous regions.

The Korea Thermal Management Contractors Association inspects boiler pipes and distributors and provides guidance on ways to increase energy efficiency, while diagnostic consultants examine energy use such as electricity in the home and provide guidelines for saving practices. The autonomous area’s Environment Division intends to give intense publicity to the environmentally friendly boiler replacement project, which has good energy saving effects.

In addition to this, we plan to publicize how to save heating costs according to each heating method on the website of the Seoul Metropolitan Government and all apartment management offices, and distribute promotional materials to promote lifestyles that continuously reduce heating costs.

Lee In-geun, head of the Seoul Metropolitan Government’s Climate and Environment Headquarters, said, “In order to reduce the burden on citizens due to air heating costs, we are strengthening tailored inspections and efficient operation consultation in accordance with heating methods.” We will continue to explore various support measures that can drive facility improvements.”
