Heat pumps: what are the next key dates in the EU?

Keeping a comfortable temperature throughout the year has become a must. Not so long ago, people used to just have a stove to heat the house in winter, with temperature control based on their own perception and opening windows when feeling the temperature was too high. Moreover, heating and cooling have been traditionally considered as separate concepts, different fields of study… or even...

Maximising heat recovery efficiency in ventilation units

Air quality inside residential and commercial buildings is an important parameter for personal comfort. Human activity in general produces CO 2 and other odorous contaminants, meaning air change is required by introducing fresh outside air. The increasing quality of insulation makes natural infiltration negligible, and therefore controlled mechanical ventilation is needed. This is the...

Ever since beverage coolers were patented in 1979 , hundreds of variations have been made to these cabinets that keep our bottles cold so we can enjoy a cool drink any time. Something that is especially pleasant these days, with maximum temperatures of 30°C in Padua, or even higher, 38°C in Madrid. So, before going into details about how efficient beverage coolers should be (also called ...
