This is the all-in-one compact evolutive D+HVAC equipment for Passive Houses, multifamily buildings and anyone who wants to live indoor with one of the best indoor climates possible.
We’ll also talk briefly about compartmentalization principle for mechanical systems in MF buildings. That principle promotes unit space heating and cooling and hot water being provided by individual mechanical systems located in each unit. Compartmentalization principle for mechanical systems in MF buildings is a principle that as, amongst other sources, clearly explained in a 6-page article from Dr Joseph W. Lstiburek, PH.D., P.ENG., FELLOW ASHRAE who was published in the July 2019 edition of the ASHRAE Journal.
