Heating, domestic hot water

The new Sankt Franziskus elementary school in Halle went into use in February 2014. A scientific monitoring was initiated to evaluate the energy concept. The results show that the wood constructed school uses 90% less heating energy than comparable schools in Germany. The building envelope including box-type windows meets the passive house requirements. The school is heated by an air-heating system with district heating as energy source. The ventilation is connected to a ground-coupled heat exchanger and can be used to heat or to cool the building.
