Comfort goes hand in hand with energy saving

Housing that combines user-friendliness, convenience and energy savings

Cost savings and Convenience

The Villapark Lavendel in Vlijmen is a unique residential development. It is very centrally located and yet offers the wonderful open feel of rural surroundings. The intimately designed housing complex comprises a series of free-standing buildings, each of which features the curved roofs typical of the Dutch architecture of the 1930s. Some villas are single-family dwellings, while others are divided into several luxury residential units. Crucially, each unit has its own heat pump system.

Although a heat pump requires greater investment than a gas boiler, it provides constant energy cost savings.


Each residential unit of the free-standing villa developments at the Villapark Lavendel in Vlijmen has been fitted with individual heat pumps from Thermia. Residents have noticed how user-friendly and convenient the pumps are, and are happy that they are contributing to a better environment. Ultimately, a heat pump is very different to a central heating boiler.


Thirty years from now, in 2050, all Dutch homes will be off gas, boilers will disappear, and heat pumps will replace them. This development can already be seen in the number of heat pump applications.

Residents have found that not having to worry about adjusting levels takes some getting used to. The way heat pumps function is
fundamentally different to boilers. “People are used to adjusting the thermostat if they want the room to be warmer or colder, but that’s not how a heat pump works,” says Lansdaal.

“You have to give the system time to find the optimum level. It’s sometimes difficult to avoid touching it, but the system has to stabilize itself.” When the development opened, a meeting was organized and the system was explained to residents. It proved very useful. “The most important lesson was that you really shouldn’t touch it,” says Mulder. “It takes about a year for the system to fully adjust and you only need to make very minor adjustments.”
