Description This ventilation system is the most common system in MINERGIE buildings. It is suitable for both renovations and new construction. Heat recovery for the preheating of the supply air reduces heat loss due to air change. Residential buildings require a central or adapted facility for each dwelling with one-storey or multi-storey operation. Requirements All…

Description • System for gentle ventilation of individual rooms. • Implementation in peripheral rooms of buildings with a conventional ventilation system for several rooms. • Posterior installation in old buildings without simultaneous renovation. • Multi-storey operation. • Can not be combined with air-to-ground register or heat pump on extract air. • Reduced efficiency of heat…

Description • System with heat recovery. • Additional use of the heat contained in the extracted air to heat the sanitary water or reheat the air brought by means of a heat pump. • Installations with air-to-air or air-water heat pump. • The air-to-air heat pumps available on the market for single-family homes carry more…

Description • This installation is combined with a heat recovery system. • The recovered heat is also used to heat domestic water or the heating of the air supplied via a heat pump. • The facilities are equipped with an air-to-air or air-water heat pump. Requirements • All work living rooms or bedrooms of the…

Description • Simple air extraction system without heat recovery. • Implementation mainly in existing buildings for which the construction of a network of pipes for the supplied air is impossible. • Economical improvement of common air extraction systems for sanitary blocks. • Reduced fan power consumption compared to mild ventilation. • No possibility of an…

For residential buildings (including renovations) on sites of degree of sensitivity I or II according to the Ordinance for sound protection, and for office buildings for which a double facade takes into account the sound protection, the mechanical ventilation can be replaced by automatic windows. All living, sleeping and working spaces, as well as wet…
