The Climate Facade is a project combining post-insulation of critical building elements with an efficient integrated heat source. Through controlled preheating of the ventilation air, the two-parted facade element aims to improve the comfort of indoor climate in historic floor buildings in Danish and other European cities. The facade is adaptable to the architectural qualities of existing buildings, and thus become a suitable alternative when traditional mechanical ventilation is a challenge. The project is divided into five phases. This report includes work from the first phase: development of a digital modelling tool for simulation of different solutions. The model is created in the IDA ICEsimulation program and demonstrates the main idea of the Climate Facade; preheating and solution of incoming air in a facade element for renovations and new buildings. The model developed in phase 1 presents a key tool in the following phases of the project.
