Energy efficiency and use of renewables

High thermal insulation of envelope was reached with thermal transmittance values of 0,127 W/(m2K) for external walls, 0,146 W/(m2K) for the basement, 0,138 W/(m2K) for the roof, 0,70 W/(m2K) for the glazed surfaces and 0,80 for the frames. External automatic solar blinds are installed for solar shading when it needs. A mechanical ventilation system with heat recovery is completed by a an horizontal earth to air heat exchanger (about 150 m long at depth of 1,2 m below the ground). A reversible high efficiency heat pump is installed. A photovoltaic systems is installed on the roof. --> Project team: Architetti Associati Cappelletti & Cerliani (Mariano C.se)
