These French professional rules concern solar water heaters for domestic use in new houses.
The rules include three parts in three separate documents:
- The first part (77 pages) describes rules for the design and dimensioning of solar domestic water heating systems (solar collector, water tank, pump, auxiliary heating source, hydronic circuit, controls).
- The second part (107 pages) describes rules for installation and commissioning of the system.
- The third part (62 pages) details rules for maintenance. These rules are the same as in renovated buildings.
These rules result from the French Programme "Règles de l'Art Grenelle Environnement 2012".
