The best funding options for ventilation systems

Ventilation systems play a crucial role in air quality and comfort in buildings. However, installing a high-quality ventilation system can not only contribute to an improved indoor climate, but also offer financial benefits. Subsidy programmes and grants make it easier for homeowners, companies and public institutions to invest in modern ventilation systems. In this blog post, you will find out which ventilation systems are eligible for subsidies and how you can benefit from the various subsidy programmes. From regional subsidies to tax concessions - we show you the many options available to you when installing a ventilation system.  

 

Which ventilation systems can be subsidised?

Various types and models of subsidies can be considered when installing a ventilation system. As a rule, subsidies are available for private households as well as for companies and public institutions. It is important to find out about the various subsidy programmes and their requirements before purchasing a ventilation system in order to obtain the best possible financial support. Depending on the type of ventilation system, different subsidy programmes are available. The energy efficiency and environmental friendliness of the system also play an important role. Active ventilation systems with heat recovery are generally eligible for subsidies, as they help to save energy and thus protect the environment. Passive ventilation systems, such as passive airflow supplies, can also receive subsidies as they contribute to improving the indoor climate and the health of the occupants.  

 

Funding programmes for private households, companies and public institutions

Many private households are faced with the challenge of making their ventilation systems more efficient and modern. Fortunately, there are a variety of subsidy programmes that can provide support. One popular subsidy, for example, is the Federal Subsidy for Efficient Buildings (BEG). Through the BEG, owners of residential buildings can receive financial grants or low-interest loans if they implement measures to improve energy efficiency, including the installation or modernisation of ventilation systems. In addition, some federal states offer specific funding programmes that support the installation of ventilation systems in private households. It is worth finding out about regional subsidy programmes and making targeted use of them to reduce investment costs. Private households should also bear in mind the tax benefits that can be associated with the installation of an efficient ventilation system. Professional advice can help to identify and utilise the optimal funding opportunities for the individual situation.

Companies that invest in commercial property can benefit from various funding opportunities. For example, programmes such as the "Investment grant - energy-efficient construction and renovation" offer financial support for the installation of energy-efficient ventilation systems. In addition, subsidies from the "KfW programme for energy-efficient construction" can be used to implement sustainable ventilation solutions in large-scale commercial projects. Another option is regional funding programmes that are specifically tailored to the needs of companies.

Public institutions such as schools and kindergartens can also benefit from funding opportunities. Programmes such as "Climate Protection Plus" support the installation of ventilation systems in educational facilities in order to increase energy efficiency and reduce environmental pollution. Grants and loans from the "Federal Support Programme for Efficient Buildings" offer financial incentives for public building projects that focus on sustainability and energy efficiency.

Hotels that want to improve their energy balance can also benefit from state subsidies. The "Energy efficiency in the hotel industry" programme promotes measures to increase energy efficiency, including the installation of modern ventilation systems. In addition, hotel operators can benefit from tax advantages such as write-offs for energy-efficient investments. The use of funding programmes offers companies and public institutions the opportunity to invest in sustainable and future-proof ventilation solutions that reduce costs and protect the environment in the long term.

You can now also benefit from the BAFA subsidy again, which incentivises the installation of ventilation systems with heat recovery. BAFA can grant subsidies for energy-saving and environmental protection measures. The BAFA subsidy provides financial support for the installation of efficient ventilation systems in order to lower operating costs and reduce CO2 emissions.

Another option for financial support is the KfW subsidy programme for companies and public institutions. The KfW programme can be used to apply for low-interest loans and repayment grants for investments in energy-efficient measures such as the installation of ventilation systems with heat recovery. This funding is used to realise sustainable projects that contribute to reducing energy consumption and CO2 emissions.  

 

Regional subsidies and grants

State subsidy programmes: Many federal states have their own subsidy programmes to support energy-efficient measures, including the installation of ventilation systems. Examples include:

Baden-Württemberg Energy Saving Programme (EEP BW): Promotes energy saving measures and the use of renewable energies.

Hamburgische Investitions- und Förderbank (IFB Hamburg): Offers various programmes to promote energy-efficient measures.

Progres.NRW: A funding programme of the state of North Rhine-Westphalia for measures to use renewable energies and increase energy efficiency.  

Municipal subsidies: Some cities and municipalities offer their own subsidy programmes for ventilation systems and other energy-efficient measures. These programmes can vary greatly from region to region. Examples include local subsidy programmes in cities such as Munich, Stuttgart or Frankfurt.

Energy supplier subsidy programmes: Some energy supply companies also offer subsidy programmes or grants for energy-efficient measures, including the installation of ventilation systems. It is advisable to contact the respective state and local authorities and energy suppliers to find out about current funding opportunities, as these programmes are regularly updated and adapted. In addition, many energy consultants offer support in finding and applying for subsidies and grants.  

 

Tax benefits when installing a ventilation system

As a responsible TGA planner or architect for commercial construction projects, it is crucial to know the tax advantages of installing a ventilation system in order to be able to offer your customers the best possible advice. By amortising investments in ventilation systems for tax purposes, your customers can achieve long-term tax benefits and increase the profitability of their projects. Subsidy programmes for energy-efficient refurbishment also offer attractive tax incentives that support the installation of energy-efficient measures such as ventilation systems. It is essential to always be informed about current tax regulations and subsidy programmes in order to provide your customers with the best possible tax benefits when installing a ventilation system. A tax consultant can help you to identify and utilise the optimum tax savings potential.  

 

Tips for optimising the use of subsidies

When planning ventilation systems, architects and planners should strategically incorporate the wide range of subsidy options in order to maximise the benefits for their customers.

1. Careful research and analysis: Start researching funding programmes at an early stage and analyse the conditions carefully. This is the only way to ensure that your projects fulfil the requirements and can benefit from the funding.

2. Consider the individuality of the projects: Every construction project is unique. Tailor the selection of ventilation systems to the specific requirements of the project in order to obtain the best possible funding.

3. Involve expert knowledge: Seek expert advice at an early stage to ensure that the ventilation systems meet the technical standards and are therefore eligible for funding. Specialists can help you select and plan efficient systems.

4. Continuous training: Keep up to date with the latest developments in the field of subsidy programmes. Training courses and seminars can help you to deepen your knowledge and optimise your planning in line with the funding opportunities.

5. Documentation and evidence: Keep careful records of all relevant documentation and evidence. Comprehensive documentation makes the application process easier and increases the chances of successful funding.

6. Focus on sustainability: When planning ventilation systems, pay attention to sustainability and energy efficiency. Subsidies can often be claimed for environmentally friendly solutions.

7. Networking and exchanging experiences: Use your contacts with colleagues and relevant institutions to exchange information about successful funding projects. The experience of others can give you valuable tips on how to make the best use of subsidies.
