BUVA Advanced homecare system
The BUVA Advanced homecare system is an advanced solution for residential construction. As in the other systems, in the Advanced homecare system the PreSet hinges and locks is the basis.

This system is also characterised by demand-driven mechanical ventilation for existing buildings and balanced ventilation for new buildings.

As a heating solution, BUVA offers the hybrid heat pump in combination with a central heating boiler in the Advanced homecare system for existing buildings and the all-electric air/water heat pump for new buildings.

Securely closed windows and doors

Every system starts with BUVA PreSet hinges and locks for windows and doors. This ensures that the house is optimally sealed and there is minimal heat loss. An important basis for BENG- (Nearly Energy Neutral Buildings) and NOM- (Zero on-the-meter) homes. In addition to the high demands of wind and water tightness, the products are fully tested for functionality and safety. The PreSet complies with all the requirements laid down in the Buildings Decree.

Healthy indoor air

Healthy indoor air, this is a very important aspect in any home. This is often underestimated because the quality of the air is usually not visible. BUVA has developed autonomous ventilation systems for this purpose. This means that the resident does not have to worry about the quality of the indoor air and the system regulates itself fully automatically.

Smart sensors continuously measure indoor air quality and extract more or less.

In the BUVA Advanced homecare system, this is:

  • for new buildings the EcoStream HRV-unit as a balanced ventilation system,
  • for existing construction the Q-Stream mechanical domestic fan and
  • in high-rise the SmartValve ventilation valve.

The result is optimal air quality with minimal energy consumption.

Sustainably produced heat

Every homecare system has a sustainable heating solution. In the BUVA Advanced homecare system, this is an all-electric air/water heat pump for new buildings and a hybrid heat pump in combination with a central heating boiler for existing buildings.

BUVA offers in the Advanced homecare system:

  • for new buildings EcoClimate air/water heat pump and
  • for existing buildings EcoClimate hybrid heat pump possibly in combination with the EcoHeat central heating boiler.

10-year product and performance warranty

The BUVA homecare systems are a collection of BUVA products that are attuned to each other in such a way that an optimal synergy is created. This leads to a sustainable, healthy and safe living environment.

The homecare systems are supplied as standard with an associated maintenance contract, which, in addition to a 24/7 available breakdown service, also offers a 10-year product and performance guarantee.

BUVA homecare app

The BUVA homecare systems operate completely autonomously so that a resident does not have to worry about the quality of the air. If desired, a resident can overrule the systems with the BUVA homecare app. For example, at the push of a button, the ventilation can be increased or decreased, or a clock program can be set for the heating.

In addition to operating the system, the app also shows the indoor air quality and status of the system. For example, a resident has quick access to the operation of the system and whether servicing is required. For example, the app indicates when the filters of the HRV system need to be replaced.
High quality hinges and locks

Securely locked windows and doors

Mrs. Singh has recently become a widow, so she considers securely locked windows and doors to be very important. In her holiday home, the contractor opted for the BUVA Advanced homecare system, with special hinges and locks for this location. This house is situated on the beach with a salt lake for which BUVA, together with the carpentry manufacturer, has developed special fittings for the outside door. 

“I always lock everything up”, says Mrs. Singh when the camera crew arrives. "It gives me a nice sense of security since I've been alone. Because the contractor opted for the BUVA Advanced homecare system, the house is fitted with the PreSet and the hard glass to get the maximum amount of daylight into the house.

“Since my husband died, I think it's very important that I just have good locks and hinges” explains Mrs. Singh. While her son is asleep, she's going to walk the dog. "I can leave with great peace of mind.”
Lower heating costs thanks to balanced ventilation

Healthy indoor air

Mrs. Singh proudly tells us that her holiday home is very sustainable. This is made possible by, among other things, the heat recovery system.

While she's in the kitchen, Mrs. Singh says: "I've always loved having friends around for dinner.”  When a table grill is used in a house, a lot of harmful substances are released into the air. "The HRV system in the house measures all the particles, and the more particles it finds, the harder it extracts.”

In addition, the Singh family benefits from lower heating costs during the winter. “In the summer it stays nice and cool and in the winter we don't have to add a lot of extra heat” says Mrs. Singh. This is because the BUVA EcoStream HRV unit reduces heat loss through keeping ventilation to a minimum and only ventilating when necessary.
A gas-free holiday home for the Singh family

Sustainably produced heat

Because the client and the contractor considered it important to install sustainable homes in the nature reserve, it was decided not to install a gas connection. The Singh family therefore uses an all-electric air/water heat pump.

“In view of the rising gas prices, I'm not worried,” explains Mrs. Singh.

SINGH FAMILY | ADVANCED HOMECARE SYSTEM

"In this remote area, I think it's important that my home is securely locked”

Since the death of Mrs. Singh's husband, she has been a single mother. She wanted a place where she and her son could relax and get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

Their holiday home is located far outside the big city, in the dunes on the water. Mrs. Singh thinks it is important that when she walks Spike in the evening, her son can stay in bed safely. We paid a visit to the Singh family.
