Keeping good neighborly relations in multi-family residentials is extremely important, as anything less than pleasant interaction really hinders cohabitation. One subject that causes a lot of disagreement between residents in multi-family residentials is heating. After all, apartment heating is the most expensive part of monthly expenses, and high costs often lead to arguments.
Reworking a building’s energy efficiency is often necessary simply for the massive savings gained following an investment. In addition to replacing the facade, multi-family residentials can benefit the most from overhauling the whole apartment heating system. This is where Kronoterm is the specialist of choice. Our expertise was recently put to the test in an overhaul of 18 luxury apartments in Austria’s Lannach.

Modern lifestyles and fast-paced technological advancement have made it increasingly necessary to turn to renewable sources of energy and other methods of protecting the environment. Multi-family residentials are complex systems that present our experienced experts with the opportunity to develop advanced solutions for the better standard of living of everyone residing there. For such an important investment as is heating, we aim to make our customers satisfied for at least the next 20 years. After all, our heat pumps are rated to last on average a good two decades.
We all know that heating with hot water and electric heaters is wasteful, and that the consumption of renewable resources is one of the keys to winning the fight against climate change. The biggest obstacle to using a different source of hot water is distributing it in multi-family residentials. That’s why the decision was made in Lannach to opt for our air/water WPL-70-K1 HTT/HK heat pump, which handily takes care of all heating, cooling, and sanitary water needs. Modern technology and clean sources of energy made their transition to green heating both accessible and affordable for all residents. Besides just saving on costs, the investment led to better relationships among residents, which itself led, in addition to the more pleasant temperatures, to better sleep at night. After all, everyone sleeps better when we get along. The WPL-70-K1 HTT/HK is also extremely quiet, so the owners of these luxury apartment have been able to use those better nights to listen to just the sounds of their own quiet thoughts.
Buildings with other heating systems do not distribute heat evenly throughout all apartments. Consequently, apartments with high ceilings or those on the shady side can be too cold, making the quality of life for those residents significantly worse. Choosing a proper, technologically refined heating system can go a long way to providing for a stable quality of living in multi-family residentials. In addition to even heat distribution, Kronoterm also ensures that the installed system perfectly matches the building’s requirements. And this is one of the main reasons that clients happily choose Kronoterm heat pumps.
The residents in Lannach that chose our heat pump said goodbye to their heating worries in 2014, both drastically slashing their heating costs and also making for a much more sustainable heating system. Maintenance is practically a non-issue, and all that’s recommended is a brief annual inspection.
The WPL 70-K1 HTT/HK has built-in weather protection. In this Austrian case study the heat pump was installed on the roof, but no additional protection against the elements was needed. Mounting it on the roof also had no effect on the building’s structural integrity, in fact blending in with the surroundings due to other similar elements in the building’s architectural design.
Every resident in a multi-family residential deserves a comfortable life and it’s only proper that, at the same time, they contribute their part to improving the environment and mitigating climate change. The WPL-70-K1 HTT/HK is perfect for all the heating needs of even the most complicated multi-family residentials, especially after a complete heating system overhaul. After that, all that needs to be done is replace the old boiler with one of our heat pumps. As easy as that!
