In order to achieve the defined environmental targets, the state has a great interest in making existing and new buildings more efficient from an energy point of view. This is why owners of existing buildings now benefit from a number of subsidy programs, which are also available for ventilation systems in particular. In this article, we explain who can apply for these subsidies and how much they are.
What to look for when choosing a ventilation system?
Ventilation systems improve the air quality throughout the house and help save energy at the same time. The automatic ventilation exchange allows the windows to remain closed, so that the heat generated via the heating remains in the room. You enjoy your comfortable temperature in the room and still have fresh air. To benefit from the advantages of a modern ventilation system, you should consider important aspects when choosing the right ventilation technology.
Saving energy with ventilation and air conditioning systems
For a long time, ventilation and air-conditioning systems were considered the energy guzzlers in the home. Consumers had to dig deep into their pockets for an optimal living climate, and the environment also suffered considerably from the power-hungry devices. Thanks to modern air conditioners and adapted ventilation behaviour, today you can combine pleasant room air conditioning with efficiency and the conservation of our resources.
Properly ventilate the basement - this is what matters
When it comes to optimal ventilation and moisture control in a house, unheated basements are often a weak point. This is mainly due to the fact that they are surrounded by the ground and thus warm up much more slowly than the surrounding area. In addition, unheated basements are not integrated into the building insulation, which places special demands on regular ventilation. You can find out what to look out for in this article.
In garages, cars, bicycles, tools and garden equipment are reliably protected against theft, snow and rain. However, a common problem is that a strong influx of moisture can lead to the development of rust. In addition, increased humidity is accompanied by an increased risk of mold, which, as in living spaces, can lead to damage to the building fabric and health problems. Therefore, the garage must also be ventilated regularly. In this article you will learn what is important.
Ventilate the basement properly with ventilation components from LUNOS
Basement rooms place high demands on sufficient ventilation. They are often damp, smell musty and offer the best conditions for mould growth. Particularly in basement rooms with no or insufficient insulation, the walls and walls become damp due to constantly high humidity.
Poorly ventilated flats not only smell unpleasant, they also have an increased risk of mould growth. Therefore, it is important to carry out a regular air exchange in order to remove pollutants and moisture. In this article you will learn what is important.
How to clean decentralised ventilation systems properly
A decentralised ventilation system removes pollutants and moisture from the indoor air and ensures a comfortable and healthy indoor climate. In order for the system to perform this task reliably in the long term, it must be cleaned correctly. In this article, you will learn what is important and which factors must be taken into account.
Our ventilation units provide you with fresh air all day long. Do something for them too and take care of your ventilation units from time to time. This is not time-consuming, but should be planned in from time to time.
The Energy Labelling Directive 2010/30/EU, which was adopted in 2010 and replaced the old EU Framework Directive 92/75/EEC, is intended to make an important contribution to increasing energy efficiency in Europe. This EU regulation on the minimum efficiency of ventilation systems came into force on November 26, 2014.
For the purpose of long-term energy savings, modern buildings are designed in a particularly tight construction method that noticeably reduces the escape of heated air. However, since this also eliminates natural ventilation via joints and other openings, the EnEV stipulates that new buildings be constructed "in such a way as to ensure the minimum air exchange required for the purposes of health and heating." Since these statements open up some room for interpretation, the requirements can be met in different ways.
The different types of air according to DIN EN 12792
In building technology, a distinction is made between different types of air, depending on the place of use and the nature of the air. These are defined in DIN EN 12792 for residential ventilation and in DIN EN 13779 for non-residential buildings. The following article explains which types of air there are and how they differ.

In the course of the Corona pandemic, the topic of indoor air quality has increasingly become the focus of public attention. This is mainly due to the fact that aerosols contained in the air are among the central carriers of viruses such as COVID-19. But aerosols also pose health risks beyond this, for example when carcinogenic chemical compounds attach themselves to them.
