Heating our offices
Heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning account for about a third of the energy used in commercial buildings. Consequently, these systems have to be modern and efficient as there are significant savings to be made by improving and substituting old systems with new, technology-updated ones. A comfortable room temperature is a very subjective matter, but good indoor climate is universal. A crucial factor in achieving good indoor air quality is natural ventilation, such as opening windows and doors to let in the fresh air.
The most productive temperature
Office spaces often have a reputation of being very cold, especially in the winter time. Cold offices obstruct efficient work and financial growth. Fraunhofer IBP did a study on students in classrooms - a study that can be applied quite directly to office environments - that showed that there is an optimal temperature for mental performance.
Many office buildings take advantage of the natural light that comes with installing large window sections. With glazing, however, comes quite a challenge. During the summer, the windows act as magnifiers for sunrays, and the room temperature quickly rockets to sky-high degrees. The opposite problem occurs during winter, when poorly insulated windows allow for chilling cold draughts. Adaptability in temperature is key in order to achieve a good indoor climate and stable temperatures.
Adaptable, economic and green heating with low water content
Radiators with a large surface and low water content are regulated very quickly and thus have a minimum of accumulated heat. A fast adaptation to external influences means a lower level of energy consumption and lower CO₂ levels which essentially benefit the environment and keep heating costs down. By using radiators instead of underfloor heating and other heavy heat sources you avoid over-temperatures, achieve optimal and instant climate adaptation, and have less heat loss at the correct temperature.
