Modern sun shading meets a variety of requirements. It regulates the daylight, protects against prying eyes, creates a homely atmosphere, contributes to energy efficiency, is a style element on the facade and adds to the residents' comfort through intelligent control systems. But what kind of sun shading is best suited for your requirements? WAREMA offers support when making your selection and gives you the information and inspiration that you need to make the right decision for new buildings.
Which design do you prefer? A framed house is built over several months, has great durability and retains its value. The walls can hold in heat, but don't heat up too much in summer. A healthy room climate is typical for this design. Prefabricated houses are, above all, built quickly. They are very well insulated so that you can easily configure them as energy saving houses. No matter which type of house design you opt for, an architect is a reliable source of advice.
But of course, your wishes are decisive. Would you like a large garden and plenty of private space? Then a freestanding single family house is right for you. However, you need a large property, which costs money. For a terrace house you need less property.
In every case you should at least basically plan a functional, flexible layout with for few projections and recesses in the facade to prevent energy loss.
Building a house is frequently building for life. That's why it is advisable to already think about growing older. It may become more difficult to climb stairs, or there may not be enough room to move in the bathroom or it could be difficult to get into the bathtub. Frequently it's the small details that can increase living comfort for all generations. Ideally, you should build for full accessibility, or at least ease of access. Find out what this means in our house construction guide:
DIN 18040 - part 2 sets out which accessibility requirements a new building should fulfil. For example, doors should be at least 90 centimetres wide, so that wheelchairs and walkers can pass through without issue. Movement areas and design features are also regulated. You can orientate the planning of your house around the specifications of this norm.

Are you planning to build a new house or to buy an old one? In both cases, it is worth paying attention to energy efficiency standards. How do you keep the warmth in the house in winter without having to add additional heating? How do you shut off the heat in summer so that the air conditioning doesn't have to start? Would you prefer external or internal sun protection - or is the combination of both perhaps the best solution? Enter our virtual sun protection house, go from room to room and find the best products for your new home in a playful way! Use the WAREMA configurator and configure your sun shading system for new buildings individually and made to measure.

Essentially there are two ways of ensuring the hot water supply:
1. Central and coupled with the heating system
2. Decentralised via flow heater or small water tank
Important: these devices can be operated using electrical energy, but this is not necessarily practical. Since it is relatively expensive. With electrical energy you can feed power peaks and receive basic heat from renewable energy sources, for example with the help of a solar system. This allows you to heat about 60 percent of your annual hot drinking water supply. Clarify at an early stage of the planning of your new building what conditions should be fulfilled for a solar system. Examples here are the areas on the roof, the inclination and the shading.
If you're looking to save energy in construction, you should become familiar with the following concepts. They are included in the building energy certificate and will appear again and again over the course of planning:
Environmentally-friendly design begins right from the choice of plot. This has an effect on the energy consumption of the house. Because it depends on the nature of the building, which heating system can be integrated and which building materials must be used. Additionally, it should be ensured that air, water and soil are kept clean and that renewable energies are used.
When planning, always keep the health and ecological aspects in sight:
✓ Harmless materials
✓ Efficient heating systems
✓ Optimal waste disposal and avoidance of toxic waste
✓ Focus on regional energy and material flows
✓ Reduction of climate-damaging CO2 emissions
✓ Good thermal insulation
✓ Use of solar energy
For many, a garden simply means quality of life. There you can spend a whole day relaxing, grill with friends or let out your creative energy. Children have a place to play, and at the same time a well-planned, well-cared for garden increases the resell value of your house. A part of this is the proper sun shading system for the garden. This not only provides shade and keeps out damaging UV rays, but also protects against wind and rain showers.
Hint: not enough property for a garden on the ground? No problem. Facades, garages and roofs can be planted just as well. A balcony can also be transformed into a city garden.
