GEAK and MuKEn

Energy-efficient renovation

Benefit from our expertise in energy efficiency, GEAK and MuKEn As an energy consultant for buildings with a federal certificate (graduation in summer 2021), FeuerWerkstatt owner Philipp Tinner offers you holistic energy analyses and consulting and implements MuKEn-compliant renovation projects together with you.

The model regulations of the cantons in the energy sector (MuKEn 2014) are part of the National Energy Strategy 2050, which was adopted at the ballot box in spring 2017. They are to be incorporated into cantonal legislation by 2020. What is at stake? On the one hand, the MuKEn are intended to make buildings more energy-efficient, i.e. to consume less energy such as heating and electricity. To this end, the federal government and the cantons are providing subsidies, among other things. On the other hand, the cantonal energy and building regulations are to be harmonized nationwide. At present (as of July 2020), the new energy law is in force in eight cantons, and another five cantons are about to do so.

In order to be able to benefit from subsidies for energy-efficient renovation, an overall analysis of the existing building fabric (building shell and building technology) is required. On the basis of an inspection and the plans (if available), we develop renovation proposals for you.

The aim is to achieve a better classification after the renovation. Old buildings built before 1990 should have at least energy class D after renovation.

Our focus is on natural building materials (, alternative heating systems ( as well as stove and fireplace construction. We are happy to realize sustainable heating concepts for you (ground stoves, fireplaces, wood stoves, pellet stoves and fireplace stoves).

These water-bearing heating systems can be designed as stand-alone heating systems (whole house heating) or as additional heating, for example in combination with a heat pump, with solar thermal and/or photovoltaic.

For the completion of my training as an energy consultant with a federal certificate in spring 2021 I am writing a networking paper about a real renovation project. For this purpose I am looking for a property for the development of the energy certificate and I am looking forward to your contact!

Do you have any question or need my expertise?

I look forward to your call or e-mail.
