In winter, Molehouse does not require to be heated, you only adjust its indoor temperature according to your needs
The main source of heat is the sun, and that is for free
In Molehouse, there is no need for air-conditioning as the house never gets overheated by the sun in summer
The interior is thermally stable – the house maintains a comfortable indoor temperature all year round, so if you do not use heating even during the coldest winter, you will never freeze
In winter, technical and storage rooms are warmed-up by the heat emitted by the surrounding soil for free
02. FRESH AIR
The fresh air is supplied through gravity ventilation effect and by windows
The fresh air does not need to be changed by the active ventilation with heat recovery – less technology means more freedom from technological progress
In winter, the supplied fresh air heats up quickly from the surrounding earth serving as a thermal mass. In summer, on the contrary, it cools down rapidly. Thus, the supplied fresh air does not require to be extra heated or cooled.
