Optimal indoor comfort in your office

Every person working in an office building should be provided with optimal indoor comfort. The more comfortable a person is, the higher their productivity and the lower the sick leave percentage. At the same time, it is also important to keep costs under control. With an average of 50% share in the energy costs, HVAC systems are required to provide the highest level of comfort at the lowest possible operation costs. 

Danfoss HVAC solutions can help you. We offer an extended range of products and solutions for the production, distribution, hydronic balancing and temperature control of heating, cooling and domestic hot water systems.

With years of experience in assisting building investors, consulting engineers, facility managers and technical staff, we have proven that reliability, energy efficiency and cost savings can be achieved at the same time.

Danfoss’ HVAC solutions for offices can be used in renovation or new-build projects, are easy to install and can achieve significant savings on the energy bill.

A breath of fresh air for productive environments

Offices, schools and sports arenas occupied by people must provide a safe and healthy indoor climate for their occupants. Danfoss AC drives ensure that buildings are supplied with fresh air – and at the optimal temperature for eveybody to focus and perform at their very best.

Electric Heating for Comfort, Safety and Health​


Underfloor heating ensures indoor comfort for office employees.  Due to the even heat distribution from the floor, ​
the temperature can be reduced by around 20% - which is both an economic and an environmental advantage. ​

Electric Heating is utilized for the outdoor safety during the winter period. One of the greatest advantages of electric ​
systems is that they are considered the most energy efficient solution for the ice and snow melting applications.   ​

Electric Heating systems for domestic hot water meet all the requirements to provide Healthy Solutions​
 to the office buildings.
