Genia Hybrid is especially efficient when it comes to heating and cooling homes – and consumes much less primary energy than conventional technologies. Because it also saves space, the hybrid system is particularly popular among people with small homes.
Thanks to Genia Hybrid, increasing energy efficiency was a piece of cake for Leeuwarden
Location: Leeuwarden, Friesland province, the Netherlands. Project: new build comprising 88 flats, Bilgaard residential and commercial centre. Task: to install the hybrid system Genia Hybrid.
Sander van der Wagen, project manager at a big Dutch construction company, was astounded by the rapid development his colleague was making in the installation of the Genia Hybrid systems. The expert could see that the installation was running extremely smoothly – much to the joy of his colleague, who was whistling along to his seasoned hand movements. Sander looked on amazed: “It’s so simple. Almost like Plug&Play!”
New experiences with a new kind of technology
A new experience for Sander. Many heating systems are extremely complicated – also when it comes to their installation. They can push technicians’ nerves to the limit and costs through the roof. Not to mention the fact that the technology normally takes up a huge amount of space.
Economical – but how?!
When planning the Bilgaarden project – a shopping centre with integrated living spaces – the Dutch city of Leeuwarden and the building contractor had a joint goal in mind: a heating system was to supply the 88 flats with heat and hot water. But there was not a great deal of time in which to realise the project. To complicate matters, there was only a limited amount of space. The system could only be built into the storage cupboards in the small flats – a space that the occupants desperately needed for a washing machine.
Genia Hybrid impresses city and building contractors
The ideal solution was soon found in the AWB Genia Hybrid. The hybrid system was selected for its quick and easy installation and the fact that it only takes up 0.1 m³ of space in the flat. The condensing boiler even leaves enough space for a washing machine. The system’s second principal component – the Genia Air air-water heat pump – is housed outside the flats, for example on the roof, as is the case in Leeuwarden.
Key system components: the savings box
The heating installer suddenly stopped his whistling
“What, finished already?” asked Sander van der Wagen.
“Not quite. I still need to install one last part.”
The technician presented a small device to Sander as if it were a gift.
“Do you know what this is?”
Sander knew full well that the man was holding an ExaMaster in his hands: the microcomputer calculates the energy efficiency of the system on a minute-by-minute basis and uses this information to decide which component should generate heat and hot water or cool the flat.
“Of course I know. That’s the savings box.”
Now it was the technician’s turn to look surprised.
“It’s simple: because the box is so good at maths, the occupants save 25 per cent of their heating costs. And what do they do with their money?”
The workman shrugged his shoulders clueless.
“They go and spend it downstairs in the shopping centre, of course!”
