Old buildings are popular for their noble charme with wooden interior and warm colors. Only deficit is mostly the bathroom, which was very basic and functional designed in the old days without any comfort or aspect for a well-being feeling.
The German magazine casamia (issue 3/2014) shows how an old building bathroom was converted into a wellness temple. The upper part of the walls was designed with a classy grey colored plastering »Michelangelo Satinato« of the collection »Converit« from manufacturer JaDecor.
The energy-saving CLAGE CFX-U instantaneous water heater heats up the water for the two hand-wash basins and is installed invisible behind a trap door.

The energy label scheme regulates the efficiency labelling of energy related products (ErP) in Europe. This type of labelling is already familiar on household appliances like refrigerators and televisions. As of 26 September 2015 it will be compulsory for water heaters as well. From that date all manufacturers are required to label their products with a standardised energy label. The new labels contain various information about the appliance and are intended to assist consumers in making an environmentally conscious purchase decision.
In a comparison of different water heating systems, on-demand instantaneous heaters were classed as A, which is the best energy efficiency class. The reason is that, unlike storage systems, instantaneous water heaters only consume energy when hot water is actually drawn off. No energy is used keeping water hot in a storage tank.

Federal Minister of Economics and Technology Dr. Philipp Rösler visited CLAGE on 6th of September 2013. The two managing directors Jörg and Joachim Gerdes commented on the concept of decentralized water supply with tailored to suit a market need electronic instantaneous water heaters. They advised of the high possible savings. The minister received insight into the production processes of energy-efficient instantaneous water heaters during the factory tour. He also came to see the electronic production line and the production hall itself and talked to the staff at the face. In the closing discussion they talked about new ways of saving energy and the difficulty of energy labels.
Jörg A. Gerdes: “We expect an explicit strategy, a better inducement and consumer information from the next federal government. We also hope for more openness to new technology to stimulate the market for energy efficiency.” The main request is to create a fair and political condition concerning the cooperation of energy saving regulation and the law for regenerative energy. In one point everyone holds the same view: The best energy is the energy that is not consumed. Therefore the advancement of energy-saving technology is an important political task in the future.
Today Julia Verlinden, parliamentary candidate of the Green Party, visited CLAGE in Lüneburg. Managing director Jörg A. Gerdes demonstrated products which are energy efficient to the parliamentary candidate during the factory tour. Mr. Gerdes: “The technical solutions already exist to reduce the energy consumption a lot.” Mrs. Verlinden: “Energy turnaround is more than the nuclear phase-out, more than the ambition of 100 percent regenerative energy in the current range. An energy turnaround will be succeed quickly and more economic with politics against energy dissipation. (…) “Factories of the energy turnaround” like CLAGE itself show that we can reduce our everyday energy consumption by the right technique”
Face to face to the CLAGE head office we finished a modern new building lately. The new building consists of a new production hall and a two-storey office building. The new production hall is 500 sqm large and encloses the electronic production line. The 300 sqm large office building is used by our customer service and our advertising department. The light-flooded office and new facilities succeed a pleasant working atmosphere. The 3 million-euro investment package also includes another hall to widen out the capacity of the stock and warehouse department. The owners are pleased with the successful new building: "The new building provides enough space for innovative ideas and growth in future."
We now offer a metal display for the new under-sink instantaneous water heater CFX-U. A dummy (instantaneous water heater and remote control) is mounted on the display. The associated brochure can be insert at the top. You can place the useful displays on the sales counter or in the shop window (Size: height 46,2 x width 27,6 x depth 12 cm). The new display mesh with the existing MCX displays where dummies of mini instant water heaters are mounted.

One touch of the lever on the tab and boiling hot water begins to flow instantly into the teapot, the cup or the glass. Thereby every passenger on board can enjoy the selection of tea at all times without waiting for hot water.
Buildings are still a neglected part of the energy turnaround. House owners and leasers still spend too much money on space heating and hot water. These was criticized by environmental and consumer protection associations, industrial and trade unions and companies. The energy turnaround in the range of buildings is an important concern what we want to advance by bringing concrete suggestions and innovative ideas.
