We are very exited to start our Italian sustainability project soon as we are going to transform our ‘ancient’ Italian house into a Sustainable ‘hot spot’.
We became owner of our Casa in September 2020. The house was fully renovated in 1998 with new heating system and double glass. In 2011 the owner received a licence to build a covered parking lot for 4 cars including a 4.6kW solar panel system on the roof. The covered parking lot was build, but the solar panel system was never realized (so far).
By Italian law we are now obliged to realize the solar panel system within the next 1.5 year… With this in mind, having 2 x 25 years old liquid gas heating systems and an interesting Italian (eco) bonus option made us decide to start our Sustainability project.
Our sustainability plan includes:
- 2 Nibe (F2120) air/water heat pumps of 16kW each. These heat pumps have a performance factor of > 5.0 and deliver a supply water temperature of up to 65⁰, enough for hot water production.
- 840 L boiler for hot water
- 300 L hot water buffer for the 2 heating systems (radiators) in the house
- 5.6kW solar panel system (14x Vitovolt 300 M400WE) incl. inverter (Viessmann)
