The cold is slowly making its appearance, the days are getting shorter and shorter.... In winter, our carbon footprint is traditionally the largest. It is up to us to make sure that it drops again, just like the temperatures.
With a few new habits and various sustainable solutions, we can soon consume less energy!
Fan convectors provide fast heat. A fan coil is a heat exchanger with a built-in fan to circulate cool or warm air around the home. This makes fan convectors a perfect alternative to underfloor heating or radiators. This type of system is extremely economical, given the low flow temperatures. A wise choice is therefore to combine fan coil units and heat pumps.Fan convectors
Geothermal heat pumps
Geothermal heat pumps extract heat from the ground and deliver it to the home's central heating system. The fairly constant temperature of the ground makes the system very suitable for harsh climates. However, this system requires you to have a garden, so they are not suitable for every situation.
The smart thermostat
Even the little things shouldn't leave you cold this winter: smart home solutions like a connected thermostat and thermostatic faucets ensure that you can heat exactly where and when you need to.
A safety system against water damage
There are several sources of leakage in the home. Consider a clogged sink or a problem with your dishwasher or washing machine. During the winter months, a burst pipe due to frost in particular poses a high risk of flooding and water damage.
Ventilation system C
On average, we spend 90% of our time indoors, where the air quality is often even worse than outdoors. This, of course, makes no sense. Fortunately, efficient and reliable mechanical ventilation quickly solves the problem.
The air, the sun and the earth energise your home! The calories still present in the air or the earth are captured by heat pumps and released into your radiators. The same goes for the hot water in your showers with a thermodynamic water heater. In short, a heat pump can do everything your boiler can! Lead the way. Break away from fossil fuels and enjoy a comfortable warmth.
Less energy for the same feeling of warmth! With underfloor heating and low-temperature radiators, you're already saving over 10%!
Ventilation ensures a healthy indoor climate, while being energy efficient. It can recover up to 90% of the warmth in the home, while providing healthy air! Eliminate unpleasant odours, water vapour and saturated air by precisely managing air renewal.
60% of your water needs can be met by rainwater! You can use it for the toilet, washing, watering plants, etc. You collect rainwater in a cistern and use it later with a pump, anti-dirt filters and a dedicated water circuit. What are you waiting for?
Softer tap water will benefit the longevity of your sanitary installations and your energy consumption. With a water softener, you can prevent energy-consuming and harmful scaling of pipes and many appliances. Did you know that 1 mm of limescale increases energy consumption by 10%?
Electronics provide a major boost: smart home solutions such as connected thermostats and connected valves allow you to heat precisely where and when you need to. The same goes for your hot water when you're on holiday: with a connected water heater, you can activate the absence mode remotely and avoid wasting energy!
