Elegant, efficient solution in a privately owned home
Newly built detached house
The technically interested couple attaches great importance to a solution from a single source that is perfectly coordinated. Maximum energy efficiency and an attractive appearance are a must. The necessary heating and ventilation system should not only provide the required performance, but also be as compact as possible.
The entire heating and ventilation concept for the energy-efficient house must be well thought out from the start. As they have a generous amount of living space at 180 m², the couple have to find a suitably high-performance solution.
Furthermore, they do not want the appliances to spoil the look of the home. Micha and Anne have designed their house to include a cellar and separate building services room. If possible, everything should be housed in these rooms: the heating and ventilation system and the central building systems, ideally all ready to integrate into a smart home system.
Reasons for choosing the compact solution
Micha and Anne’s heating contractor recommended that they choose a combination system that unites heating and ventilation in a single appliance:
- they select an air-to-water heat pump. This type of heating has become the standard system used in new buildings. Free environmental energy keeps the house at pleasant temperatures and supplies it with hot water.
- The combination system also contains a directly integrated ventilation system. Using this compact solution not only saves the couple space, it is also easier to blend into the interior of their home.
Heat pumps are so technologically mature that they can generate a pleasant indoor environment all year long. This type of heating system uses free environmental energy for heating in winter and can even provide cooling in summer, depending on the model.
Modern control systems can be integrated into the appliances. Micha and Anne want to operate these using apps and voice assistants.
Heat pumps are extremely efficient. The electricity required for the heating system and DHW heating is provided by a photovoltaic system that is perfectly integrated into the roof. This means that the couple have near-zero operating costs.
The ventilation system also lowers the cost of heating. Thanks to the heat recovery function, significantly less energy is lost than would be by opening the windows to air the interior.
Premium solution for a premium house
Anne and Micha look forward to living in an extremely comfortable and efficient new building with the combination of appliances they have selected. The sleek building services centre is perfectly at home in their cellar and suits the overall design of their energy-efficient house. Both products work hand in hand and can be easily integrated into the planned smart home system.
