GERMANY: Panasonic’s Aquarea All-in-One Compact and Bi-Bloc heat pumps, and its Heat Recovery Ventilation Unit, have been certified as a Passive House component.
The Passive House Institute (PHI) is an independent research institute that has played a crucial role in the development of the Passive House concept. It is a voluntary standard for energy efficiency in a building, which reduces the building’s ecological footprint, It resulting in ultra-low energy buildings that require little energy for space heating or cooling.
“It’s an honour to have units from our advanced Aquarea range receive such an important certification,” said Jose Alves, UK country manager for Panasonic Heating & Cooling Solutions, “We strive to create energy efficient solutions to benefit all, whilst also providing a high level of comfort. This Passive House Component certification is one part in our aim to help create nearly zero energy buildings.”
Panasonic is one of only a few manufacturers to produce 3kW heat pump models, which is what most Passive House buildings use as it allows for energy savings and high efficiency.
