In the near future, your building will also be more expensive when it comes to operating costs. This is due to the rising energy costs caused by the poor construction and insulation of most older homes and business premises. An investment in Phase Change Material concepts will significantly reduce your energy costs. Most concepts can pay itself back within mostly 3 years. Our solutions include sustainable and energy efficient heating, cooling and ventilation.
Phase Change Materials store heat or cold for use at a later time. The applications are countless. The application is both simple and effective. For example, for the Western European climate, we usually choose a PCM with a melting point of 18-23 °C for cooling. A PCM with a melting point of 25-30 °C is very suitable for (floor) heating. If the room temperature exceeds the melting temperature of the PCM, the PCM will melt and thus warm up. During the phase transitions melting - solidifying - melting etc., which occur at a constant temperature, large amounts of latent heat are stored and being released again.
This feature is used to control the temperature gradient in a building or to dampen it. This, according to the known principle of Trias Energetica; reduce the demand, which automatically results in energy saving. Thus, with PCM's we reduce the capacity by creating virtual building mass. Payback periods of less than 3 years are more the rule than the exception. Even when renovating older buildings, our GAIA PCM's can play an important role in achieving the energy objectives. The use of PCM's usually does not require special facilities for a building or installation.
With only the use of Phase Change Materials you are not there yet. Advice and consultation on the overall concept is equally important. We also advise on the installation technique to ensure the optimal operation of the Phase Change Materials.
Our GAIA PCM's offer great benefits. Some of these are:
GAIA PCM's achieve unthinkable savings, more than you could ever imagine. A few examples:
