Reducing temperature control costs is one of the most important challenges faced by contemporary architects. The need for sustainable buildings that comply with ever more exacting standards has intensified the use of clean technology and the incorporation of renewable energy systems into building design.
Through Butech, PORCELANOSA Group studies and develops geothermal energy installations that take advantage of the constant temperature found below the Earth's surface to control the temperature in buildings cleanly and inexpensively.
Where is geothermal energy used?
The system can be applied to any type of construction, from single family homes to blocks of flats and public and administrative buildings.
How geothermal energy works
Heat is extracted through perforations in the ground and the installation of probes that transport heating into the building.
Geothermal energy’s advantages
Controlling the temperature of buildings using geothermal energy has significant advantages over other renewable energies, for example, it has no impact on building design, provides a regular supply and is an excellent return on investment.
