The Benefits of Thermally Active Building Systems

The use of thermally active building systems (TABS) started in Switzerland in the early 1990’s. Mostly used in new office buildings, TABS have been installed in offices across Europe, North America and Asia.

TABS are water-based heating/cooling systems in which pipes are embedded in concrete slabs of buildings. The main advantage of using this system is that it reduces the peak load by activating the thermal storage capacity of the buildings concrete slabs.

In this blog, we will take a simple look at how TABS work and the main benefits of using this system in new construction projects. Continue reading

Thermally Active Building Systems with Geothermal Energy Design Basics

Thermal utilisation of ground energy in conjunction with thermally active building systems or TABS provides an ideal heating and cooling solution. On the one hand, it can make a contribution to environmental protection; and on the other operating costs are reduced through the use of this sustainable energy solution. A distinction is made between horizontal and vertical collectors in the ground as seen in the image below.
