SMART DESIGNS & INSTALLATIONS
WITH I-BUS® KNX

KNX installations

KNX is the world's only open standard for house and building system technology. In Europe, KNX is established in the CENELEC EN 50090 and CEN EN 13321-1 and 13321-2 standards, and internationally by the ISO/IEC 14543-3 standard. In China, it corresponds to the GB/Z 20965 standard, and in the USA to the ANSI/ASHRAE 135 standard. KNX is thus a globally valid as well as applied standard. All KNX products from all manufacturers are certified by the KNX association. This means all components are guaranteed to be compatible and future-proof, across the several manufacturers.

HOW HEAT PUMPS HELP US MINIMIZE
ECOLOGICAL FOOTPRINT

How heat pumps help us minimize ecological footprint

For climates with moderate heating and cooling needs, heat pumps offer an energy-efficient alternative to furnaces and air conditioners. Like your refrigerator, heat pumps use electricity to move heat from a cool space to a warm space, making the cool space cooler and the warm space warmer. During the heating season, heat pumps move heat from the cool outdoors into your warm house and during the cooling season, heat pumps move heat from your cool house into the warm outdoors. Because they move heat rather than generate heat, heat pumps can provide equivalent space conditioning at as little as one quarter of the cost of operating conventional heating or cooling appliances.
