Green tips for heating your home

While many countries encourage environmental heating systems by important subsides the subject still remain in the state of curiosity, is an investment for many inaccessible.

What is a green heating system?

This system either not polluting either uses clean components and substances. For example, tyfocor (circuit agent used in solar collectors) is a propylene glycol, even drinkable. Such a heating system is based on a tanker that can connect storage to multiple sources of energy, being able to provide optional systems such as:
1 collectors + heat pump water / water + wood-burning stove;
2 solar collectors + heat pump air / water + stove peletti;
3 Any other combination is possible, the tank has two entries for renewable energy +solar collector coil system.

Hot water is made in a separate circuit by changing the heat being always fresh and protected against Legionella bacteria type.

How expensive is and about how long the investment pays off?

The investment can pay off in five to seven years, the lifetime of the solar collectors being40-50 years, and of a heat pump, for 25-30 years.

How open is the internal market in these systems?

Basically, the market is open, but relatively high costs and the fact that beneficiaries are not helped by fiscal measures or subsidies to install such a system transform this ecological idea into a simple dream for many people. In Sweden are exempt from taxes, according to the investment, in Austria 20-50% of the investment is repaid, the electricity consumed in France with a heat pump is paid at half the normal price and in Luxembourg 100% investment refund.

We can achieve energy independent house?

At the moment it launched a new device called “Shukey machine” that works in combination with solar collector panels. In an area not connected to a power network, the system fails to produce enough electricity and thermal energy to heat and cool a house, with capacities from 2.5 to 100 kW (electricity demand of a building housing the 250 sqm of approximately 6 kW, and heating / cooling a need for 20 to 25 kW).

There’s only one problem: equipment prices are for the time being prohibitive. Equipment is truly revolutionary, is the latest technology, we can only hope they will find ways to reduce production costs.

What are the advantages of heat pumps?

Maintenance and service costs are low, do not make noise, requires no investment in special technical rooms or chimneys and does not require special permits or approvals. As a last statement, using refrigerants art performance (“ozone friendly”) are also completely clean.
