Heat pump stories

Hidden heat pumps provide comfort for residents

In the heart of Sint-Truiden in eastern Belgium stands a remarkable apartment building called Griso, comprising 14 apartments. But what makes it special is its secret: 14 split heat pumps from Vaillant, discreetly installed on the roof, ensure individual comfort for each apartment, providing both air conditioning and hot water. 

The choice of individual configuration for air conditioning was a deliberate decision by the architect. This choice grants residents control over their consumption and expenses. Strategically placed out of sight, the heat pumps operate seamlessly, offering reliability and efficiency. 

Supported by split heat pumps, each apartment benefits from its own hydraulic unit and a 190-litre indirect hot water boiler. This not only saves energy, but also optimises storage space, a valuable asset in apartment living.
