Results

By utilising the internal loads in the property, a better indoor climate has been attained and there have been heating savings of over 50 per cent. Ecopilot® prevents installed systems from counterbalancing with each other and are instead operated by optimisation together.

Energy classification

Arak now has an E-classification in accordance with the European standard for energy efficient buildings. This corresponds to 135–180 per cent of the new construction requirement for premises. Without an Ecopilot® installation, Arak would have an F-classification.
