Jönköping municipality – Unionen

Results

In addition to an initial energy saving, Ecopilot® Analysis has identified weaknesses in the ventilation, heating and cooling system. The heating system has been rectified with very good results in terms of the total energy consumption.

Energy classification

Unionen now has a B-classification in accordance with the European standard for energy efficient buildings. This corresponds to 50–75 per cent of the new construction requirement for a multi-dwelling building. Without an Ecopilot® installation, Unionen would have a C-classification.
