Aage Nielsen claims that, during their cooperation on this project, the parties effectively adapted the LivingBetter concept and made it ideal for hotel operations. The solution ensures that fresh air is conditioned as it passes through the ventilation windows’ double-glazing panels and thermostatic control system. The partnership installed ventilation windows in every guest room and several other functional rooms at the hotel. The solution exploits natural solar energy to the extent that the ventilation windows add significant energy and are an integral part of the indoor climate solution. Moreover, heat emanating from the hotel guests staying in the room is recovered to heat water and the rooms on demand.
Danish IKM A/S supplies the exhaust air heat pumps. These are installed in the basement along with other plumbing and heating installations. Exhaust air is extracted from the hotel bathrooms. The heat pump fans create air exchange and exploit energy in the exhaust air to provide hot water and heating. This highly effective ventilation solution is achieved using only one exhaust air duct instead of the conventional two.
