Energy efficiency in buildings

Improving the energy efficiency of buildings is one of the fastest, most efficient and reliable solutions to energy problems.

NorTech provides know-how about the management of energy efficiency in buildings and energy audits. As important components of energy efficient buildings, we also focus on heat pumps, as well as on air-to-air energy recovery.




Energy efficient buildings consume less electrical, heating and cooling energy. Consequently, the greenhouse gas emissions and other emissions associated with energy production and use will also be reduced. Energy efficient buildings also improve indoor air quality, bring economic advantages and add to the value of the building.
