We produce more energy than we consume
We generate our own electricity with photovoltaic power station on the building’s roof and carport.
All renewable energy sources are interconnected hydraulically through a reversible heat pump, which provides for heating and hot water as well as passive and active cooling of the building.
We use geothermal energy for cooling and heating
All rooms have installed an underfloor heating system. In summer months, a cooled water circulates through the same system, contributing to more pleasant working conditions.
Fresh air is provided through earth tube ventilation
Fresh air enters through joint earth tube ventilation. On its way to the building, the air gets partially heated during winter months and partially cooled during summer months. The air is then additionally cleaned and heat-treated in a ventilation device with a highly efficient recuperation, heating and cooling device.
We use rainwater in our toilets instead of sanitary water
In the building’s vicinity, we have an underground rainwater tank with a hydrophore station, which is used in our toilets and for watering our green plots.
