Solar Sun House

Subject areas:

Being independent of oil or gas- just a dream? No. At Baufritz we declare it possible! - With our Baufritz sun house. A complete solar system can – seen over the whole year - provide two-thirds of the heating for your home. Only the remaining one-third will you need to heat yourself. The sun house is the alternative to houses that are heated with fossil fuels. But that's not all: As the eco house pioneers we also guarantee an ecological and healthy construction - down into the details of the house, for example in the domestic technology. Such complete solutions only come from us - our official seals prove it!

Store heat instead
of electricity

With a solar house you are your own energy supplier. While the neighbours complain about high gas and oil prices, you will be heating nearly self-sufficiently your Baufritz home. The solar house principle is based mainly on three components: a solar heating system, a hot-water stratified storage tank and a booster heater. With Baufritz you are ideally positioned for the future.
