Inventum Ecolution Modul-AIR heat pump
Sustainable, energy-saving solution with a long aesthetic lifespan.
Commissioned by Inventum Technologies, Alfred van Elk industrial design has designed the housing of the new Ecolution Modul-AIR ventilation heat pump and the GreenComfort heat recovery module.
The products are compact, energy efficient and quiet in use, and help to make homes more sustainable and to reduce CO2 emissions. The Modul-AIR heat pump can be expanded from a hybrid to an all-electric system, which can be used to provide homes completely free of hot water and fresh air.
Inventum is a Dutch company that has existed since 1908 and is a manufacturer of sustainable, energy-saving ventilation and heating systems for use in homes.
Inventum wanted a well-designed, environmentally-friendly design with a long technical and aesthetic lifespan and thus in line with the core values of Inventum. The clear design of the steel housing contributes to a well-kept and well-arranged user environment. All components of the heat pump and the heat recovery module are accessible from the front, making the products easy to install in small spaces and easy to maintain.
The heat pump can be used in combination with a central heating unit to reduce gas consumption, or – in well-insulated homes – function completely gasless as a stand-alone unit with a boiler. Together with the GreenComfort heat recovery module, the total efficiency can be increased even further. No outdoor unit is needed.
Next to a GIO 2020 Award, the Modul-AIR and GreenComfort received a Gold Award for Respect.
