ABSTRACT
The paper deals with the analysis of the actual measurements of hot water over several months in residential buildings in Slovakia. After contemporary status analysis execution in the field of hot water (HW) preparation and distribution the second step was an experimental observation hot water off-take in residential houses at its central preparation with intention to develop diagrams of heat consumption and determine offtake coincidence coefficients. The article is processed on the base of hot water off-take daily loading developments. An imperative assumption for optimal systems of hot water production and distribution design is a consumer’s real demands knowledge. The paper presents the evaluation of hot water consumption over the year, monthly, daily and hourly course. For determining the coefficients of uniformity of heat consumption for water heating was applied the dynamic pace of consumption, followed by optimization of the water heaters storage parameters.

Keywords: hot water distribution system, consumption of hot water
