Heat generation, heating systems, heat transfer


A major key to achieving the ambitious targets for the protection of natural resources and climate lies in the largest sector of energy use in Europe and Germany, the heating market. This offers the greatest potential of all for saving energy and reducing CO2 emissions. In Europe, and particularly in Germany, the existing installed equipment is dramatically out of date. Of roughly 21 million central heating installations in German boiler rooms, some two thirds do not meet the standards that technology can now provide and consume far too much energy. The heating industry has an extensive portfolio of high-efficiency solutions both for renovation work and for new builds.

Modern state-of-the-art heating technologies – ranging from efficient heat generation to heat transfer – will be on display at ISH. In Halls 11 and 12, the heating industry will be presenting the latest solutions and heating systems, which combine high efficiency with increased use of renewable energies. Key topics for consideration include, amongst others, the sector integration, the strong coalescence of heating and renewable electricity, digital heating and the increasing inclusion of IT in innovative heating technologies that goes with it.

Heating with wood; Exhaust technology


Heating with wood offers many advantages – both for people’s sense of well-being and for the climate. By burning wood, we protect the natural stocks of fossil fuels; wood is thus an important corner-stone in the energy revolution and in the achievement of climate protection targets. Wood can be used both to heat individual rooms and to heat whole buildings. Fireplaces for individual rooms, together with integral masonry stoves and tiled stoves that heat multiple rooms, flues and flue liners, together with the relevant accessories, are all on show at ISH in Hall 9.2.

Heating with wood pellets – in other words, with the waste products from sawmills - is particularly environmentally-friendly and cost-efficient in comparison to the use of fossil fuels. Pellet boilers can be employed as central-heating units and can thus provide for all the space heating and hot water needs. The latest technologies in the field of heat generation with pellets and biomass fuels, as well as the accompanying flue gas and flue installations are exhibited in Hall 11.1.

Heat Distribution


Because of ever increasing energy costs, heat distribution within buildings is acquiring a hugely important role. Significant energy savings can be achieved with hydronic balancing of the heating system. This process involves matching the individual components of the system in such a way as to ensure that the heat gets through precisely to where it is needed.

Hydronic balancing also always involves checks on the heating pump. New models consume up to 80 percent less electricity than older, outdated pumps. Modern units have significantly higher levels of efficiency and adapt continuously to changes in heating load. As a result, valuable energy is saved, not only at peak load, but at the much more frequently occurring partial loads, too.

The manufacturers of high-efficiency pumps, together with other components of the central heating system, will all be brought together in the same zone in Halls 9.0 and 9.1.

You will find, amongst other things, the following products and technologies in Hall 9.0:

  • Pumps, expansion vessels
  • Storage tanks
  • Components for heating appliances

You will find, amongst other things, the following products and technologies in Hall 9.1:

  • Fittings for heating
  • Stations
  • Thermostats

Refrigeration, air-conditioning and ventilation technology


Human beings spend more than 80% of their lives in closed rooms. As a result, air quality in rooms and indoor spaces is especially important. Only technically sophisticated climate control units and / or appropriate ventilation systems in dwellings and workplaces can provide long-term solutions for ensuring adequate air quality.

Refrigeration systems are becoming ever more important elements in technical building installations. In addition to thermal comfort, increasing attention is being paid to architectural requirements and flexibility of use.

The segment refrigeration, air-conditioning and ventilation technology, will be concentrated in Hall 8. Intelligent building technology is an important part of ISH is – in both the private residential and commercial sectors. The joint presentation of expertise in the fields of refrigeration, air-conditioning and ventilation technology in harmony with innovative building automation is reflecting this development.

You will find, amongst other things, the following products and technologies here:

  • Central air handling units
  • Heat exchangers and cooling coils for air-conditioning technology
  • Heat recovery systems

Home and building automation; Measurement and control technology


Intelligent building services technology is the key to improving energy efficiency, whilst at the same time increasing the degree of convenience and comfort. The ISH Energy area brings together the entire spectrum of intelligent building services technologies. Home and building automation, energy management, together with Measurement and control technology, as well as test equipment, are all located in Halls 10.2 and 10.3. This means that they are right at the heart of the ISH Energy section, since this is the segment that links all the technical trades. Here, you will be able to find out all about Building Information Modelling (BIM), as well as about ‘smart’ building services technology. In addition, manufacturers of heating and air-conditioning units will also find here relevant components for their technical products.

You will find, amongst other things, the following products and technologies in Hall 10.2:

  • System, room and building automation
  • Mobile measuring and testing instruments
  • Measurement and control technology
  • House automation / Smart Home
  • Electric drive systems, actuators

You will find, amongst other things, the following products and technologies in Hall 10.3:

  • System, room and building automation
  • Sensors, probes
  • Building management and automation systems
  • Energy management
  • Building Information Modeling

The Bathroom Experience


The modern bathroom is designed as an inviting and special room, which encompasses all the senses and in which both body and mind can feel equally comfortable. The ‘Bathroom Experience’, the manufacturers will be presenting the latest design trends, together with modern sustainable technology tailored to meet today’s needs. The challenges for bathroom planning in the future continue to reflect the need to bring together the various aspects that result from demographic change, together with issues such as health, wellness, comfort and convenience, not forgetting the sparing use of resources. What will the bathroom of the future look like? And how will it manage to meet the diverse needs of the people that use it? The exhibitors’ solutions, which you will be able to see first-hand in the ‘Water’ zone, are as varied as people’s wishes.
