Now-a-days there is great demand for sustainable residential housing total solutions. As a result of rising land prices and a shortage of available space, homes in large, inner-city developments are getting smaller day-by-day. Additionally (local) governmental regulation is asking to minimize the amount of energy used in buildings, but at the same time to maintain sufficient fresh air inside the living space.
Finally, the quality of living is continuously improved by better and higher insulations, resulting in a reduction in background noise and the need for easy to operate and accurate control systems.
The CERA system is easy to implement hi rise residential construction concepts, especially where sustainability is a requirement. An example of this is the transformation from offices to homes, because the existing infrastructure of channels, shafts and technical rooms can be reused. The use of sustainable primary processes (heat pump, ATES installation or district heating) is also an option.
By applying the CERA system it is possible to achieve the exceptionally low EPC value of <0.15. The system can be supplied with a declaration of equivalence, obtained for application in the EPC calculation method in accordance with NEN 7120. Depending on the application, the system may be eligible for the energy saving subsidy.
