Heating accounts for most of the energy used in 1- & 2-family houses

Most existing houses have potential to realize significant energy savings, by improving the heating system and optimizing control of heating operations.
When it comes to new builds, it is important that houses, as early as the design phase, are equipped with high-performance heating equipment, which can ensure the lowest possible energy consumption, combined with high levels of comfort for the homeowners.


By using high-performance, recommended Danfoss heating equipment, such as radiator thermostats, hydronic- or electrical floor heating, heat pumps, smart heating solutions, allowing individual room control, homeowners can experience significant energy, emissions, and cost savings, both when it comes to new builds and renovation projects. All homeowners are interested in keeping indoor temperatures comfortable, while maximizing the efficiency of their heating system.
