Buildings account for around 35 percent of energy consumption in Germany and are currently responsible for around 120 million metric tons of the greenhouse gas CO2 each year. These emissions would have to be reduced by more than 40 percent for Germany to achieve its climate protection targets by 2030 and become less dependent on energy imports.
This is where decentralized ventilation systems play an important role, enabling healthy and energy-saving air exchange. Installation is very simple and particularly interesting for existing buildings. Fans are installed in the building envelope to extract stale or moist air. For the fresh air supply, the fan operates in reverse mode or a second fan delivers fresh air from outside. Additional components such as heat recovery systems and air filters can also be used to reduce heating costs and improve air quality.
We manufacture the actual heart of this system and can offer you the appropriate fan unit for this. We continue to set new standards here, particularly in terms of increasing service life, reducing energy consumption, lowering noise emissions, and utilizing all the options offered by modern, integrated electronics. Examples of applications for our fans for decentralized residential ventilation from ebm‑papst are shown below.
