About Hysopt

Our goals

Better HVAC performance

Hysopt is a spin-off from the University of Antwerp: our technology has been developed on the basis of years of research. We want to use our software to optimise HVAC installation performance levels on a large scale. We do this by supporting installation companies and engineering offices with powerful, user-friendly engineering software and services.

Lower costs, higher margins

We offer added insights into the design and ultimate system performance levels of hydronic installations. This means we can significantly increase margins for installers and make the HVAC sector more sustainable. Energy savings can fluctuate between 10 and 50%, and be even higher for new build projects.

Always make the right choice

The ultimate hydraulic design is exceptionally clear, as are the KPIs. Mapping out the various KPIs for every design enables the client to make a quantitative evaluation of their installation’s energy consumption, thermal comfort and control behaviour, and so make the right choices.

Better installations

The current working method in the HVAC market is to focus mainly on price and reputation, without taking the real system performance into account. We’re changing this by also measuring installation performance levels.

Sustainable future

This new design method being pioneered by Hysopt ensures a sustainable future. Precise calculations for all components lead you to the best combinations, and we’re constantly developing our software further and sharing our expertise and know-how with our clients.
