Good planning by the architect and the almost perfect coordination with all involved shareholders made it possible to keep the impacts of building work reasonable.
In order to achieve the ambitioned aim of deceeding the energys saving regulation of 2007 by 30%, exterior walls, roof and basement ceiling were valuable insulated: the 36 cm thick exterior walls bricket with a heat insulation system consisting of 20 cm thick polystyrene insulation, the roof with additional 10 cm mineral wool between the doubled rafters and 3,5 cm wood fiber softboard atop of the rafters. Windows and exterior doors achieved high-insulating 3-pange glazing with wood-aluminium-frame-construction. Based on sealing exterior components consequently to the existing construction and taping everything airtight, unwanted air draft is a thing of the past. The comfort ventilation system with heat recovery, which is situated on the attic floor, increases energy efficiency, because fresh air arrives preheated from heat transformers and canal systems into the rooms. The heating system is optimized and hydraulically equalized. It works efficient with a condensing gas boiler, a solar heat plant with ca. 7,5 square meters collectors area as well as a bivalent hot-water-storage.
