Frederik and Stefanie are building a nest for the whole family

Frederik and Stefanie have long dreamt of a having a large home with ample room for the whole family. The couple are both in their mid-forties and want to give their three teenaged children as much freedom as possible, To this end, the new building will have a sizable living space of 250 m².

 

The house is being built on a developed site provided by Stefanie’s parents. Therefore, they are considering combining an efficient heat pump heating system with the existing gas connection.

 

Challenge: a comfortable home all year long

This large family wants to make use of all the living space from the attic to the cellar. They also have friends and relatives round on a regular basis who often stay overnight. So they need modern levels of home comfort at all times of year.

 

Frederik and Stefanie want the heating system to have sufficient reserve capacity to provide interior heating and hot water for the large house even when many different people are using the shower, cooking and heating rooms all at the same time. They are entrusting the specialist company of their choice with finding the best way to manage this using the available technology.

Why use gas, environmental heat & ventilation

The family can heat their home sustainably and save money at the same time by using a hybrid system consisting of gas heating plus heat pump and mechanical ventilation – all without fearing any loss of comfort.

01. Using environmental energy

Nowadays, heat pump heating systems are installed in over 50% of new buildings. They provide climate-friendly heat production using free environmental heat.

02. Gas: a reliable energy source

Their expert consultants recommend combining a heat pump with a modern gas condensing boiler to stay on the safe side in all situations and because the site is already connected to the gas mains.

 

As gas heating is always available on demand, the large family can easily and conveniently compensate for short periods that require more heating.

03. Ventilation unit for healthy air

Depending on the model and design, heat pumps can be used as a central heating backup and to provide gentle cooling in summer. This eliminates the need for expensive and inefficient air conditioning systems. In combination with a home ventilation system, this guarantees that the family will be comfortable not only in the cold Bavarian winter but also when the summer sun is beating down on the roof.

 

Frederik and Stefanie’s children have often suffered from headaches and concentration problems in the past. For this reason, healthy indoor air is especially important to them in their new house.
