The methodology of calculating the indicators of energy characteristics of buildings is regulated by the European Directive on the Energy Performance of Buildings no 2002/91/EU. The directive provides for introduction of energy standard and building certificate, as well as specification of its class in terms of energy performance.
The requirements contained in the directive will concern new building structures, leased and sold buildings as well as building and housing apartments undergoing major renovations and communal housing and public utility buildings. According to the recommendation of the EU Directive at the application for building permit or else sale or leasing of existing building it will be necessary to provide its energy certificate. The certificate should describe the current building’s effectiveness in terms of its energy consumption and monitoring its internal climate.
The quality of the building will unquestionably increase with the increased effectiveness of its heating installation and related to it lowering of building’s exploitation costs. Energy saving heating systems should be characterized by highly efficient receptors of thermal energy, small mass of energy carrier and a possibility of local regulation. Modern central heating installations should be made with radiators of lower thermal inertia and water capacity, able to quickly react to changing working environment and allowing for fast start-up.
These conditions are certainly met by the Verano® Convector radiators made by VERANO company.
