MINERGIE is the quality certificate that guarantees optimal comfort with low energy consumption. Next to the normal standard of insulation, the better insulated and thicker GebaANudehülle ensures more living comfort through controlled living space ventilation, the lungs of MINERGIE-Bauten.

The comfort ventilation system supplies the residents with fresh air. Noise, pollen and germs remain outside. Excess moisture is also removed, reducing the risk of building damage considerably. Naturally the windows can still be opened with comfort ventilation, ensuring connection with the outdoors.

The capital costs of a MINERGIE building lies between 5 – 10% higher than that of buildings with a normal standard, but the operating costs are substantially lower. Many cantons help to promote building using MINERGIE and even some banks grant MINERGIE mortgages with advantageous conditions. There are also additional benefits such as increased comfort, less building damage, independent of energy prices, etc.

MINERGIE is a registered trademark. The certificate (Minergie label) and the associated number, guarantees that that particular building is up to standard.
