Legal aspects of room ventilation, the German Energy Savings Regulation (EnEV), DIN standard and regulations.

German Energy Savings Regulation (EnEV) and Energy Performance Certificate

Since the first Energy Saving Regulation (EnEV) came into force in 2002, residential buildings have been considered in a holistic manner: building and installation engineering are supposed to form a reasonable whole. The primary energy demand required for heating, ventilation and drinking water heating has been restricted by the lawmaker and the limiting values have been tightened several times in the meantime.

Energy Savings Regulation & saving energy

According to the Energy Savings Regulation (EnEV), en terms of convenience ventilation systems with heat recovery via a cross counterflow heat exchanger, for example, a heat supply rate of 80% can generally be taken into account. Details

Determination of the required volume flow

The amount of air to be supplied to the house and discharged from it is defined in compliance with DIN 1946-6, depending on the surface area and the number of persons. An air exchange rate of 0.4 can always be applied as a general value for the design of the ventilation unit for flats and detached houses. Details

Cross section openings

The supply air usually flows from the “supply air room” through the hallway, entrance or corridor (cross section rooms) to the exhaust air rooms, such as bathroom, WC, kitchen. Details
