Traditional House Built at ZEB standard in Rural Area of Romania
Keywords:ZEB, renewable energy, adobe house, rural development
An energy analysis was performed on a house built in a Southern village of Romania. The house has a typical traditional architecture and size for a single-family dwelling and is made of concrete structural frame and adobe bricks, roofed with unheated attic. The zero-emission building (ZEB) performance could be achieved with proper thermal resistances for envelope elements, an air-to-water heat pump for underfloor heating and DHW and solar- panels mounted on the roof. The analysed house is the third of its kind built in the village neighbourhood in the last 10 years, proving its good living quality and cost affordability, as well as the local market demand. The extension of solutions to existing houses is proven feasible.
