We offer a solution for all the problems and challenges that homeowners in city centers face every day. Our heat pump VERSI-I is designed for historic urban apartments that lack much space for a boiler room or outdoor areas where an external unit of the device could be placed.

A relaxing winter Saturday morning, a good book, and a cup of hot tea? It sounds romantic, but if you have to get up practically in the middle of the night and kindle a fire two floors down in the boiler room, just to be able to step out of your pajamas into a reasonably warm bathroom, then all the romance fades away. Additionally, you have to wait a long time for the thick walls of the bourgeois apartment to heat up even remotely. Heating in apartments located in city centers can be a real challenge.


Characterized by high ceilings, thick walls, wide hallways, and a dark, cramped boiler room in the icy basement of the building, living in the old city center has its less charming side. If you have to wander down to the basement early in the morning to light a wood fire, it is, of course, very inconvenient. Bringing these spaces to a suitable temperature for real comfort also takes time. Gas or oil heating is not very environmentally friendly and, above all, extremely expensive.


Apartments in city centers are generally located in quite old buildings from previous centuries, many of which are monumentally protected. Such old apartments naturally have their charm, soul, a special touch that we are only beginning to create in new buildings. Replacing the heating system in such buildings is quite demanding, but if the existing system is replaced with heat pumps, it’s a different story.


We have designed a solution for all the problems and challenges that owners of apartments in city centers face every day. Our VERSI-I heat pump is designed for old town apartments that do not have much space for a boiler room or outdoor areas where the outdoor unit of the device could be placed. VERSI-I is intended for indoor use and can practically be placed anywhere in the room – in a corner, niche, attic, under the stairs – or even in your kitchen, as its design allows it to be placed alongside other household appliances. City center apartments usually have high ceilings, and the spaces themselves are large, where the noise of the heat pump could be a problem. As KRONOTERM specializes in quiet and efficient heat pumps, the versatile VERSI-I heat pump is exceptionally quiet, 40 times quieter than European requirements for such devices.


The adaptation itself when installing the VERSI-I heat pump is not too demanding, thanks to its small dimensions and low weight, allowing it to be placed in the attic and pipes to be led through the chimney or roof. The low weight and small dimensions of the device are even more welcome for old town apartments, as elevators are usually not available, and hallways and stairs are extremely narrow. Breakthroughs in thick walls are also not necessarily required, allowing you to make an efficient and economical investment in your apartment despite the strict requirements of the Cultural Heritage Protection Act.


So – a heat pump in an apartment?

Yes! The VERSI-I heat pump is actually quieter than your refrigerator – in fact, its sound could be compared to the volume of our breathing. In addition to its almost silent operation, its efficiency and economy compared to other heat pumps and furnaces using different fuels (e.g., gas, oil), as well as remote control, contribute to the comfort of your living space. Forget about morning walks to the boiler room, night watches to prevent anything from burning, cleaning the boiler room and soot, and, of course, finally putting an end to high heating bills.
