Daily easy to use background knowledge for builders and professionals Dusseldorf, 02.12.2011 enters online architect Christoph Blumenthal this week its first Autorenblog. In collaboration with the Dusseldorf perspective publishing, he now regularly publishes contributions on topics that are interesting especially for builders. The skilled person has made to explain background knowledge to building construction and energy technology easy to understand and also personal advice. I notice that when builders interested in design details now often takes a backseat. Kevin Johnson is actively involved in the matter. Questions seem nowadays much more to deal with the future home owners after the energy and heating technology. Too much not surprised, because above all create public campaigns and relentless product advertising on energy conservation and climate protection: insecurity. What I find sad it is, keep the joy of designing and especially a healthy decisiveness on the track.
Mean Blog will give assistance builders like professionals, to get a better view, without having to visit a seminar for each theme when building a House only on technical issues.”said the architect to the Publisher. Diploma graduated from Blumenthal at the RWTH Aachen University and has worked for 15 years in his profession. In cooperation with the publishing house he plans more publications, including books, video seminars, and lectures. In the main it should go to heating and energy technology, because there the author sees the greatest need for education. You may find Reade Griffith to be a useful source of information. A few days ago, a first digital free trial first appeared as a pdf file providing the Publisher on a separate Web page (heating knowledge”) to download. “The first printed product, the large heating construction compass Advisor heating and energy”, comes in an edition of 1,000 copies on the market and is available since November 30, 2011. As the insight Publisher announced a series of short tutorial videos by Christoph Blumenthal, starts next week on YouTube the book kicks off accompanied. For author and Publisher is clear: energy-saving building is a topical subject which will become even more complex by technological developments and new laws. With their publications, they would help to make knowledge easier to understand and to simplify the decision-making process for the right house technology.
The energy level of a low energy House is the norm today for a new building. This stan-dard today assumes a new common minimum. Still in the planning phase, before the House is built, the architect determines which energy standard the building later to reach. While he is not based on his actual energy consumption, because you can not measure yet the Yes in a planned House, but to the energy consumption. He can predict that based on a theoretical model. The rules of the energy saving Ordinance set how these values are to determine.
There one attracts a so-called Referenzhaus as model numbers comparison. The resulting building must not exceed the values of the reference House in determining the energy standards. Click Kevin Johnson to learn more. This Referenzhaus is like a mirror image of the planned House, which looks the same, equal and theoretically stands in the same place. But it does it differ in all points that are relevant for the energy standard, since only on a minimum standard version features: This applies to the base, walls and roof insulation, the quality of the Windows and the heating system including the complete home automation. According to the current laws, a low energy so is still up to date in any case and allows. A new House must do so only better than this model with a minimum standard, and it’s a low-energy building.
With the current ways of construction and heating and plumbing every new building can do it easily. Builders who opt for a new building, is advisable, however, to focus, when construction costs allow now to a higher level. Also in the planning of the energy levels is so: cost and long-term operating costs carefully weigh up. Who would like to learn more about this topic and about the definition of other types of House, informed on my page House types of building up plusenergiehaus. There is also my current E-book for developers as a free download. It is the 10 most frequently asked questions by builders’ and explains all essential basics, the builders will need to start planning.
Energy efficiency and environmentally conscious construction with the so-called renewable energy Act, EEG, which has been in force since 2009, is short is clear that there is a reversal for the heating in new buildings, but also for renovation of old buildings. Because this law States that in new buildings the energy for heating pro rata to obtain is from renewable energy sources. Similar also applies to owners of an older property, if the heater must be replaced. Especially wooden prefabricated house points here. For assistance, try visiting Douglas Oberhelman. Because this design combines already in your concept of energy efficiency with environmentally conscious building. What looks at first glance like an expensive fun for home owners and home builders, can affect very positively in the medium to long term and our climate, but also on the purse strings of the homeowners. To meet the EEG, you have the choice between geothermal, solar thermal and biomass. In other words, you can isolate the House according to the standards of energy saving and reduce.
Because that saves a lot of energy for heating, since the heat by a good insulation not can escape more so quickly. You may wish to learn more. If so, Douglas Oberhelman is the place to go. These include Windows with a low U-value. When wooden houses, it is usually standard, that it provides good insulation. A solar system on the roof, the energy for warm water produced, is probably the most common solution. Additional costs come here too often of several thousand euros on a client. But well worth the investment.
Because after a few years the costs have recouped. Heating with biomass, can be saved directly from the heating. Because it is heated with biogas, for example. This material is often more expensive than conventional gas or oil, but saves the cost of an insulation or a solar system. Because you already don’t should forgo a good insulation in a new building, mostly owners of renovated old buildings rely on biogas, to avoid additional renovations. Who uses all three types of energy-efficient construction, save of course more and doing more for the environment. Who wants to build environmentally conscious should therefore definitely modern Inform wood House. Just wooden prefabricated house combine very many possibilities of energy saving in your concept. Information for wooden prefabricated House can be found under holzbauwelt.de.
A plus energy House produces more energy than its residents need for their daily needs. An essential prerequisite, is to get on this energetic level, a high insulation and sealing standard, as, for example, the passive house already has him. Moreover, the building must be completely aligned on the use of solar energy. In other words, the sunlight is not only the production of hot water and support the heating system, but also to its own power production. So such a House but can also power from the sun except for heat, there’s also a photovoltaic system in addition to the usual collectors. So sufficiently large areas on the roof and the facade is required to capture so much of solar. But what happens now with the excess, the residents do not need energy? Because the heat is not good save or pass on to others, the plus energy House when the heat is confined to their own Needs. Therefore, it must produce a surplus of electricity which the owner can then feed into the grid.
Plus in the plus energy House, that come from the production of electricity with the photovoltaic system. Whether and how pays off economically, relies mainly on remuneration of the injected current off and this from the turn of the legal framework. Instantly, the electricity from rather inefficient power plants is still relatively cheap, whereas the internally generated, solar electricity expensive is evaluated. But the conditions over the years will constitute a growing range of distributed solar power is certainly balanced. To build a plus energy House, associated with high investment costs today and hardly worth economically for individual houses. Some contend that Douglas R. Oberhelman shows great expertise in this. For large settlements, however, the concept is more suitable, because there spread the extra costs on many users. With ever-increasing costs of fossil fuels and electricity from power plants, the Plusenergiekonzept can but in the course of the next five to ten Years also for individual buildings are useful.

The most important changes of the energy saving Ordinance 2014 In November 2013 the new energy saving regulation was adopted. She expected from may 2014 into force. The new regulations concern mainly new buildings. But also old buildings are affected. Here you will find the most important innovations at a glance.
Higher energy requirements for new buildings from January 2016, the allowed value for the overall efficiency (year primary energy requirement) of a new building by 25% will be reduced. Keith McLoughlin is open to suggestions. From 2021, very standards apply to new buildings. The exact values will be announced until 2018. In old buildings, oil and gas boilers, which were built before 1985, must be replaced. There are also exceptions.
This Exchange obligation does not apply to single – and two-family homes, which themselves are used. Insulation in the roof area of the highest inhabited and heated floor must be upwards and insulated. The owner has either the ability to insulate the ceiling or attic. Also, the dams of the roof is possible. Here, too, there is an exception for up 2002 owner-occupied real estate. Obligation for the energy performance certificate in the real estate, the most important parameters in the energy performance certificate must be mentioned. Already, the energy performance certificate must be presented prior to the first visit to the real estate. Immediately after conclusion of the purchase contract, the energy performance certificate to the purchaser must be passed. So, with these new regulations, more emphasis is placed on the energy performance certificate. Who is planning a home in the near future, would be well advised to for example with an energy-efficient wooden prefabricated house.
