Plusenergiehauser – The Integrated Energy Revolution

Published / by admin

The days of the old single-family energy houses are counted the new generation produced by Plusenergiehausern not only the required energy itself produces even more energy, consumed than in the House. Plus”stands for a time change first in the detached house area, then with security in the entire housing. The decades-long effort to lower energy consumption, always radical dams and densities now pay them their true value. Combined with innovative solar – and heating technology they now allow concentration on the essentials: freedom from fossil dependency. The generation of energy is renewable, most solar. Although Plusenergiehause have a network connection, to supply energy in cold, dark winter months if necessary. But over the year, they generate an energy surplus of up to 6500 kWh. This intermediate storage in batteries increase the share of consumption in turn, are fed into the power grid can be used a Electric car to fuel.

Thus, Plusenergiehauser are an important component of a further key technology for the future: E-mobility. The most important components of a Plusenergiehauses are a highly insulated, airtight building envelope with controlled housing ventilation, a photovoltaic system designed for the required energy surplus, a heat pump-based heating system as well as highly energy-efficient household appliances and lighting. Based on these pillars also of the Federal Ministry of transport (BMVBS) built “Effizienzhaus plus” in Berlin in the beginning of March a test family is insert to gather intelligence on the suitability for everyday use. A main focus is to operate the complex House control and operation of electric vehicles from the car up to the E-bike. Leading manufacturer of prefabricated House present own plus energy house designs for fall 2011 in the FertighausWelt in Koln Frechen. Today, private builders can build so in plus standard. Is noticeable in these homes everything, that they reach the plus standard in all popular architectural styles, and different detail solutions.

A harmonious overall concept, in classic gabled houses as well as in houses in the Bauhaus style or modern half-timbered houses is crucial. A big advantage for investors is that he needs no external evaluators to test the energy efficiency of the building. Calibrated intelligent electricity meters are sufficient, they give information on how much electricity has been produced and consumed and thats how big plus to derived energy. So is the ultimate beginning: the domestic use of renewable energies in combination with high energy efficiency and the use of electric cars is a great step towards the turn of the installed power in Germany.

Second Generation

Published / by admin

In particular, many experiences and wishes of our clients have been incorporated House of second-generation construction with the special plus of service in addition to their own demands of the company K.O.M. concept on modern and cost-conscious construction, in the concept of the new K.O.M.. As already reported, the House passed the back ready to feed, no costs are incurred, and many loving details like wardrobes, vacuum cleaning system, drink bar and wine fridge in the complete fitted kitchen or the wellness facilities include a bathroom as well as the solar flat plate collector to the hot water or the air-water heat pump, modern and efficient in the KfW 70 standard. But in addition to the actual House offer a comprehensive and competent support is extremely important many builders during the construction phase. Regardless of the construction management, K.O.M. provides optionally a personal assistant of the construction concept with the House of the second generation on customer’s request. That is until now new and unique in the construction industry.

Here, the customer has its own Secretary”construction, which takes care of everything around the House building. Many issues and problems, for example when it comes to the actions of the public development support, or also to the construction coordination, be removed so the builders in simple manner. The personal assistant of the building just as reliably done the cumbersome official channels, queries the local public utilities if necessary or clarifies financial matters such as building status reports and evidence of building stand for the customers. This professional service saves much time and gray hair the builders, he can delegate all the things he will be facing as a rule for the first time, his expert advisor. The House of the second generation is also strictly limited second generation with all its Extras is however not unlimited available. As with the House of the first generation, the company K.O.M. concept here continues its successful line and limited offer according to the regions and provinces. Only in this way it is ensure that all our customers the best price-performance ratio with the maximum customer benefit, with consistently high quality in construction and in the service, is available. 30 of these houses available there per region from January 1, 2011 until 31 December 2011 maximum. Only who reserved in a timely manner, is can be recorded also guaranteed in the circle of the selected building fans, because the actual sale ends on July 31, 2011.

Fraunhofer Study For PCI Nanofug Premium

Published / by admin

On the sample provided two clear advantages of the new variable Flexfugenmortels PCI Nanofug premium, the processors convince generous processing time and fast the binding behavior. They are connected with practical features for the client as low maintenance effort and resistance against acidic cleaner. Special plus: the formulation and the material conditional alkalinity protects the joint attack by certain fungi and bacteria. Now the Fraunhofer Institute for Interfacial Engineering and biotechnology confirmed the so-called protection effect. Our tests have shown that PCI Nanofug premium inhibits the development of certain microorganisms in sufficient exposure and duration”, reported Dr.

Iris trick. Tested in the lab In February of this year the Fraunhofer has effect of PCI Nanofug premium on the sample provided the protection Institute and confirmed. In addition to the natural alkalinity, which exhibit all cementitious products, the Flexfugenmortel by the addition of a titanium dioxide commodity protects against the infestation of Mold and bacteria. Because the special Crystal structure of this additive accelerates the photocatalysis with the help of light and water the chemical decomposition of organic substances. The effect on each a bacteria and a fungus that often occur in damp rooms tested”, explains trick. For testing, sample illumination and served areas were compared. “With impressive results: the bacteria nor the mold are detectable on the exposed PCI Nanofug premium inspection bodies.” Therefore, it is assumed that the selected test organisms on the material of the PCI Nanofug premium formulation do not breed.

In practice proven just the preferred areas of PCI Nanofug premium, the bathroom and the kitchen, benefit from the positive properties of the mortar: for hygiene at the top is very sensitive and vulnerable areas. A joint with a fine, functional surface, which can be easily cleaned, is right here. In PCI Nanofug Premium is successful the combination of fine surface quality with the special combination of selected additives us”, says Martin ubelaker, PCI product manager tiling. This a visually high-quality, color-brilliant joint with functional surface properties formed.” These are the be-all and end-all of the consumer: the easy to clean effect facilitates cleaning. While the premium grout scores at the same time with an increased resistance to acidic household cleaner. As with the surface properties convinced the processors shines PCI Nanofug premium with the processing profile. So, the material combines the advantages of normal – and schnellabbindenen grouts. This means in practice: the Tiler has a comfortable window of time approximately 40 minutes to bring the mixed mortar in the joints. This, after two hours, the then area is again accessible. This saves you time and I can continue to work quickly. Especially in small areas, for example in the bathroom, that is an advantage. And I must not abandon the comfort in the processing still in,”Robert Steindl, Fliesenlegermeister, summarizes. For fine porcelain stoneware surfaces, PCI Nanofug premium is therefore first choice because the mortar soon receives a sufficient strength. The profile of the variable Flexfugenmortels is rounded off by a high abrasion resistance (13888 CG2 WA DIN) and very low emission values. So the EC 1 plus license makes sure that PCI Nanofug Premium provides maximum protection against space charges and thus protects the health of the inhabitants.
