Healthy thermal comfort for every living situation. Contemporary construction or energy efficient renovation and the specifications of the EnEV require a high level of energy efficient insulation. That is why central residential ventilation systems are now standard in passive houses, low-energy houses, and housing renovations. x-well residential ventilation supplies rooms with fresh air around the clock and thus permanently creates hygienic thermal comfort and a pleasant level of humidity, not too high. By filtering dust and pollen, your own four walls also become a place of well-being for allergy sufferers. As no window needs to be opened, street noise stays outside, as do pollen and allergens. We only install external filters of the highest possible filter class ePM1 according to ISO 16890 in all central ventilation units. During air exchange, odours are naturally also removed from the kitchen, bathroom, and WC. Apart from that, x-well residential ventilation systems consume very little energy while working due to the high heat distribution. So in contrast to window airing, no heat is unnecessarily lost.
The design air vents fit in with any interior design furnishings.
Benefits of x-well central residential ventilation
Central residential ventilation supplies the individual rooms with fresh air via a ventilation unit, usually placed in the plant room, and a distribution system.

The x-well S-series with heat recovery offers a wide range or compact ventilation units for comfortable and controlled residential ventilation. The volume flows can be controlled as required via the relative humidity of the extract air and they have a humidity sensor integrated in the extract air (depending on the unit configuration). With this sensor, it is possible to control the volume flows according to demand through the relative humidity. The countercurrent heat exchanger made of polystyrene used for heat recovery is proving to be particularly efficient. In contrast to that, the integrated summer bypass provides support in the summer to ensure that no warm air gets inside the building. The white powder-coated (RAL 9003) housings made of stainless steel are heat insulated and soundproof. The removable front part provides easy access for service and maintenance work or for replacing filter cartridges.
Using a flat ventilation unit as an example, the S280, shows how it is possible to install the unit as well as the main duct system in the suspended ceiling. Here, manifolds/collectors and the ventilation ducts are encased in the bare concrete ceiling.
When retrospectively installing an x-well residential ventilation system, it makes sense to integrate it into the floor construction. Here, the ventilation ducts are laid in the insulation layer. Ideal for renovation situations.
If the controlled residential ventilation is used over several storeys, then the ventilation unit is connected to the manifold/collector via silencers and main duct pipes. There are three different options for integrating the ventilation ducts: in the suspended ceiling, in the bare concrete ceiling, or in the bare concrete ceiling.
The x-well F-series with heat recovery as compact ventilation units offers comfortable and controlled residential ventilation. Thanks to the versatile installation options and due to their shallow construction depth, they are ideal for renovation and can easily be installed in drywalls and suspended ceilings. The volume flows can be controlled as required via the relative humidity of the extract air and they have a humidity sensor integrated in the extract air . With this sensor, it is possible to control the volume flows according to demand through the relative humidity. The countercurrent heat exchanger made of polystyrene used for heat recovery is proving to be particularly efficient. The white powder-coated (RAL 9003) housing made of sheet steel is heat insulated and soundproof. The removable front part provides easy access for service and maintenance work or for replacing filter cartridges.
Installation situation x-well F150 – The low installation depth is suitable for installation in pre-wall installations of modern bathrooms.
x-well F170 / F170 E ventilation unit (enthalpy heat exchanger for moisture recovery)
Installation situation x-well F170 - The versatile mounting options are perfect for installation in suspended ceilings.
Using a flat ventilation unit as an example, the F170, shows how it is possible to install the unit as well as the main duct system in the suspended ceiling. Here, manifolds/collectors and the ventilation ducts are encased in the bare concrete ceiling.
Integration in a suspended ceiling could be an option when fitting retrospectively, e.g. while renovating, if the ceilings in the rooms are high enough. For example, with manifolds/collectors which can be installed hanging from the ceiling, round or flat ventilation ducts are connected.
Ventilation unit especially for apartments and houses, without a special technical room, up to 210 m² of living space.
Installation situation x-well F270: Exactly right for installation in utility rooms or comparable rooms.
Control element for all central residential ventilation units. The control element is included on all S units and F170 and F170 E. It can also be ordered as an option for x-well F150. It is operated using a simple menu with easy to understand pictograms and language neutrality in the user menu. It is also possible to mount the control element on a wall as a surface-mounted installation.
Aesthetically pleasing and functional for optimal air. The x-well design air vents for airing the central residential ventilation are aesthetic solutions for various installation situations: They are suitable for both installation in a suspended ceiling and also in dry construction walls. As flow-optimised source air vents, they contribute to a comfortable ventilation of the rooms. A filter insert is available as an option as well as a throttle to balance the air flows.
x‐well hygienic is an electronic air filter. It was developed to improve the air quality of the supply air and to protect the health of the people who are in the building. The electronic air filter is based on the principle of separating particles present in the air by their electrical polarisation and their subsequent fixation on opposing, differently charged metal surfaces that form numerous strong electrical fields. As a result, pollutant particles become electrically charged and are attracted and held in place as if by small magnets. The electronic filter effectively stops particles of category ePM1 (fine dust), soot, pollen, biological substances, and viruses that are on the particles.
Benefits of the x-well hygienic air filter
For temperature control of outside air. Preheating in the winter / cooling in the summer. Unlike the air, the ground has relatively constant temperatures. That way, the brine/air geothermal heat exchanger can preheat the outside air at low outside temperatures in the winter and keeps it frost-free. As a result, optimum operation for the ventilation unit can be assured even at temperatures below the freezing point. In the summer, the ground temperatures are considerably cooler than the outside air. As a consequence, the outside air can be adequately tempered via the brine/air geothermal heat exchanger. Apart from that, the brine/air geothermal heat exchanger is an energy saving alternative to electric preheating coils thanks to the use of regenerative energies.
Heatable air vent for use in the supply air area. Suitable for installation in the ceiling and in the wall. Own heating output control depending on the air quantity through PTC heating element. For ventilation pipe flat. With adapter also for round pipe. Version SEA500 without electric heating element can be used for the extract air with an optional filter .

Whether it's a single-family house or an multi-family house, a new-build or a building that has been modernised for energy efficiency – controlled residential ventilation provides fresh air and healthy thermal comfort. Either centralised or decentralised ventilation systems are suitable. This guide will provide you with an overview as to which residential ventilation system is suitable for which building and should help you choose one.
Controlled residential ventilation continuously supplies living spaces with fresh air. The filters – outside air filters and extract air filters – play an important role here. What quality filters do you need? How often do the filters need to be replaced?
The topic of thermal comfort is really quite complicated and some of the terms used often need explaining. That is precisely when I can help you! As a real specialist, I am very familiar with all the system components and the way they work together, so I am able to explain these situations very clearly and in a way that is easy to understand.
