Compared to conventional solutions, LivingBetter makes it possible to simplify the structure and save on a ventilation system, district heating, the outside part of the heat pump and often also solar heating panels.
This is possible because all the air entering the building enters via the ventilation windows located in living spaces. It is not necessary for all the windows to be ventilation windows. All you need is a sufficient number of ventilation windows to meet official requirements and/or air flow figures based on experience. The additional cost of ventilation windows is often lower than the price of a ventilation system.
In a new build, we recommend installing an IKM A/S exhaust air heat pump in a utility room. The pump will usually need ducting only from the kitchen, bathroom and utility room. The pump has no outdoor parts, no air intake ducts and is cheap to install. Even so, it is part of an energy solution that creates ventilation, hot water and underfloor heating.
We calculate energy consumption in our offer to you. Most are surprised how energy efficient their home will be when it has ventilation windows and an IKM exhaust air heat pump.
In renovation projects, you can use a simple air extraction technique or an exhaust air heat pump primarily for the purpose of ventilation, but also to heat domestic hot water. A system of this kind often cuts heating consumption by more than 50 %.
