A solar-thermalsupport is planned. You receive individual equipment with pleasure on inquiry.
Which kind of heating-system is planned?
The standard heating is an electric natural stoneheating or infrared heating (glass panels or flat panels) with thermo-statically controlled heating elements on walls or ceiling in everyroom. If requested any other heating, e.g., under-floor heating with gas burneror woodpellets can be installed.
How is the Conhouse insulated, does it fulfil thenational regulations?
The Conhouse fulfils all national regulations with regard to noise prevention and heat insulation. The multi-layer construction ofthe outside cover provides for a maximum in comfort.
Are additional installations, as for example PV systemsor solar collectors possible?
The installation of PV systems and solar-thermalcollectors is planned and is recommended by us. On a roof surface of approx.100 m ² (flat roof) is installable a PV system with an achievement of approx. 6kWp. This produces in sunny regions of Germany approx. 6,000 kWh of electricityper year which corresponds to the annual consumption of a 5-headed family.
In addition, solarthermal collectors can be installedto the hot-water production which can save with optimum interpretation, up to70% of energy.
Floorplans / Planning
