New heating system
In 2004, the Heldal family moved into a newly built detached house on Fana in Norway. The detached house has a total living area of 235 m²,, with 191 m² on the ground floor and 44 m² on the first floor. The heating system is a combination of underfloor heating with a stoneware oven in the living room and an old, inherited antique cast iron oven in the kitchen, which complements the style of the home. A heat pump was installed to provide the floor heating. In the summer of 2014, a severe storm caused major damage to the electrical system. It also ruined the heat pump, which had to be replaced with a new one. After the family had carefully considered a range of different options, they settled on Thermia Atec.
