Multifunctional surface heating and ventilation system trumps in hygiene test / The Ruhr District Institute of Environmental Hygiene awards certificate / A1 room air – also for care institutions and hospitals / Schütz Energy Systems has a new manager, Alexander Muster
Selters/Gelsenkirchen (hds). – Germs, bacteria, dirt and the rest don’t stand a chance with airconomy, the multifunctional surface heating system. This is the conclusion reached by the Ruhr District Institute of Environmental Hygiene in Gelsenkirchen. The scientists’ official test report is cause for celebration for Schütz Energy Systems, which manufactures the system. For Alexander Muster (42), since 2011 the new manager of the Schütz division, the result confirms what the company itself had previously concluded from its own tests. “With the certificate awarded by the hygiene researchers, it has now been officially established that airconomy satisfies the requirements of air conditioning systems and therefore complies with the hygiene directive VDI 6022, page 1. The institute tested the hygienic handling of the system and found it to be flawless – yet another point in our innovative system’s favour. This positive result will prove useful in our efforts to promote the installation of airconomy – at the construction stage – in new buildings for social institutions, such as schools and hospitals.”
One system – three functions
Whether installed in private houses or commercial buildings, in hotels or gyms, airconomy wins everyone over to its advantages – from the people who commission a building to those who live in it or use it. That’s because airconomy is a multifunctional surface-heating system that combines three different functions: heating, ventilation and – if required – cooling, too. The system is both practical to use and extremely energy and cost-efficient. The central feature of airconomy is its warm-water surface heating system with integrated, controlled room ventilation. Fresh air is supplied through virtually invisible ventilation slits that are let into the floor. As it continuously replaces odour-contaminated and polluted air with fresh air, airconomy not only lets healthy people breathe easy, as the saying goes, but also and especially allergy sufferers. The ventilation system’s integrated filters lock in pollen and fine particles of dust before they can even enter the rooms. The ventilation function also helps to protect against damp and mould.
Clean and efficient – a life long
The intelligent surface heating and ventilation system has long been an integral and innovative part of architects’ and planners’ complex and coordinated building services technology concepts. A further advantage is that the entire system operates with lower supply temperatures than conventional surface heating systems. This makes the system particularly ideal for transmitting the energy generated by modern equipment, such as geothermal heat pumps. The ventilation system’s heat recovery rate is a rather impressive roughly 90 per cent. The ventilator’s energy consumption is minimal compared to the amount of energy saved, and the entire system is
