CERA VENTILATION

FOR BETTER LIVING...

CERA (Central Energy Recovery Air flow) is a total ventilation concept designed for use in stacked housing. The primary system includes a central heat recovery in the central AHU unit and is maintaining duct static pressures at a minimum. Air balance is carried out by measuring the supply air to the apartments and by controlling the return air accordingly. The CERA system: a very energy conscious ventilaton system, which will contribute to your green building certification (powered by Barcol-Air and Hiensch Engineering).

Market conditions & Regulation

Now-a-days there is great demand for sustainable total housing 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.

SUSTAINABLE VENTILATION SYSTEM

When the primary system uses a heat pump, thermal energy storage system or district heating or cooling system, it is possible to achieve an exceptionally low energy consumption. Depending on the application, the system can contribute to get a higher degree in a green building certificate.

Another advantage of this is, when during the conversion of offices into apartments the existing infrastructure of ducts, shafts and technical spaces, can be used.
