Leaky windows, ice-cold walls, outdated heating system. In terms of energy, there is still a lot wrong with the kindergartens in stadtschwarzach and munsterschwarzach. On tuesday evening, the members of the town council had a look at the kindergarten st. Josef in stadtschwarzach an insight into the current situation. In the subsequent council meeting, they came to a unanimous decision: in the coming year, both daycare centers are to be renovated for energy efficiency. The immense costs of 370,000 euros for stadtschwarzach and 80,000 euros for munsterschwarzach are to be allocated in the 2013 budget.
"Move in head" during the inspection of the cellar in the kindergarten in stadtschwarzach, it was clear to the roughly grown members of the council. Architect stefan schielke, together with kindergarten director sabine schuster, led the municipal inspectors through the kindergarten building. Lothar nagel, the mayor of the city, set a clear goal: "we want to achieve a k-efficiency house in order to receive government subsidies." The kindergarten building in schwartzach currently has an energy requirement of 390 kwh (heating costs). After the energy renovation, a value of just over 160 kwh is to be achieved, which corresponds to a heating cost saving of well over 50 percent.
Brother edmar schafer (monastery list), who is responsible for the monastery project "regenerative energies" in the abbey of munsterschwarzach is responsible for the kindergarten, saw the current situation realistically and at the same time took a look into the future: "energy is becoming more and more expensive. That is why we should invest now in order to save money later."
Architect schielke had a certificate for energy-saving thermal insulation for the kindergarten in stadtschwarzach. The council brought with them a report detailing the costs, economic viability and environmental compatibility of the project. The proof had been compiled by the veitshochheim engineer anja kriege. Schielke considered it a priority to optimally coordinate the renovation measures from a structural point of view, to keep the investment costs for the entire package low and to make optimum use of demand programs. He recommended that all the energy-saving measures be carried out in one go.
According to the current plans, the exterior wall, the basement ceiling and the top floor ceiling are to be dammed. The old windows are to be replaced by triple-glazed thermal insulation windows. The heating system is also to be renewed. Three variants for a new heating system are under discussion, which the committee will decide on in the coming year: gas condensing boiler and solar system, pellet boiler or air-water heat pump with gas condensing peak load boiler. Whether a photovoltaic system can be installed on the roof of the kindergarten in stadtschwarzach because of its proximity to the parish church is to be decided by the kitzingen district office.
The council did not reach a final decision on the question of whether the bay window on the front of the building should be retained. Because the bay window was probably added in the 1960s, it is possible that it will be torn down in the course of the energy project.
In the kindergarten st. Felizitas in munsterschwarzach the energy situation is not quite as dramatic as in the neighboring village. Various energy audits have already been carried out there in the past few years. In 2013, the exterior walls and the top floor ceiling of this daycare center are to be dammed. The building is also to be fitted with triple glazing for thermal insulation. In munsterschwarzach, the members of the kindergarten association want to do the interior work themselves and thus save around 10,000 euros. Because the club has already installed a photovoltaic system on the roof, the municipality will save the cost of a solar system, which was planned to support the heating system.
