Heating and cooling of offices and commercial buildings – cost and energy efficiency
If you think about planning an office or commercial building you’ve got to include ventilation, air-conditioning and heating. Each one has a considerable task and investment in itself. Now think again: Why not integrate indoor climate in the construction from scratch?
The Uponor TAB system operates with pipes embedded in the structural concrete slabs. These way ceilings, floors or walls contribute primarily to the sensible cooling and secondarily to the base heating of the building. The embedded pipes activate the concrete core in the building mass for storage and discharge of thermal loads.
While the Uponor TAB system is no air-conditioning and does not substitute any ventilation system the task of conventional technologies is reduced to a minimum – which helps assuring the best possible indoor environment in an invisible, inaudible way without draught. That’s innovative to the core!
