Abstract [en]

When constructing a new house many questions appear, from architecture to decisions regarding installations. Sweden is situated in a cold part of the planet and questions regarding which heating system to install face everyone who decides to build a new house. This thesis describes a construction solution of a villa in Kiruna. The extended essay analyzes which heating system is most suitable for the construction. The options are geothermal, district and pellet heating systems. The aspects of interest in this study are economics, service and maintenance, as well as environmental impacts. Another important factor is how well the system can be integrated in the indoor space design. Conclusions are made from facts presented about the systems. The conclusion drawn from the comparison is that the choice of heating system is a complex question with many possible answers. A combination of individual values and the geographical area of the house are essential factors. In order to give the systems equal conditions they were all presumed to have great geographical localization to the villa and also buyers that, according to the writers, has normal values. The study showed that a geothermal heating system is the best solution for the constructed house. However, the comparison indicated that the other systems are almost as good solutions. That is probably why district, geothermal and pellet heating systems are all so common on the Swedish market.
