Are you planning to renovate an old building? Read here what you should pay attention to when renovating and refurbishing. Because renovations and refurbishments need a good strategy. If you spend enough time on it in advance, you have a clear advantage - especially when it comes to choosing sustainable heating and cooling systems.
One of the most important, if not the most important, aspect when renovating an old building is the selection of a sustainable heating system. In times of climate change and energy crises, it is more important than ever to think about optimal, sustainable heating - and also cooling. Because not only cosy warmth in the cold season, but also pleasant coolness in the hot summer months, make a decisive contribution to your personal living comfort.
The advantages of heating renovations are obvious. With an energy-efficient heating system, you can greatly reduce your energy costs. This means that you will have paid back the investment in a future-proof heating system as part of an old building renovation in just a few years.
If you choose an ecological and sustainable heating (and cooling) system, you will also significantly reduce your personal carbon footprint. In addition, you are independent of exploding costs for fossil fuels. You not only improve your sense of well-being and the indoor climate, but also increase the value of your property.
The disadvantages of heating system renovation are much less significant compared to the advantages. Initially high investment costs pay for themselves again after only a few years. Technically complex heating systems carry the risk of faulty execution, but by choosing the right partner with years of experience, you minimise the risk here too. Unfortunately, even the best professional can't take away the temporary impairment of your quality of life due to the construction site.
You should therefore find out about the different options available for your renovation project. Gas heating systems and radiators are long past their prime. Actively ask about energy-efficient, comfortable and sustainable technologies that offer heating and cooling as a system solution.
Cold feet in winter and an overheated head in summer? To ensure that the temperature in your house or flat is perfect, regardless of the season, and that the feeling of comfort is not spoiled by too dry air or cold draughts, it is advisable to choose surface heating and surface cooling systems.
Surface heating and surface cooling systems can of course also be used when renovating an old building. These are based on the principle of radiant heat or radiant exchange. In this way, you create comfort all year round. Thanks to the installation of panel heating and cooling systems in the floor, walls and ceilings of an old building, they are not only completely silent, but also invisible. This means that you no longer have to be bothered by annoying radiators in your living space. The innovation leader in this field? Variotherm for sure.
