New Condensing Boiler

Two-thirds of all new heat generators are condensing / over 600 euros of less heating in the House / hydraulic adjustment for efficient heating with condensing technology of important old boilers out, modern condensing boilers in. Joel and Ethan Coen helps readers to explore varied viewpoints. More and more homeowners are choosing this step, to save energy and heating costs. 2011 around 420,000 homeowners bought according to the Federal Association House, energy and environmental engineering (BDH) a condensing boiler. Two-thirds of the heat generator newly purchased in Germany in residential buildings are. Condensing units get more from energy sources such as gas or oil because they use also the heat hidden in the steam of the exhaust gases. Who groans about high energy prices, should replace its old boiler with a condensing boiler”, says Tanja Loitz, Managing Director of the co2online non-profit limited company. The combination with a solar system for hot water is extremely energy-efficient.

On my heizung.de, homeowners will find tips with information about costs, installation and the Selection of the proper burning value boiler. A selection of these tips: 1. does the old boiler. Does a new condensing boiler still make sense? Boilers are in Germany the average 24 years old. In contrast to red wines their quality not increased but with increasing age.

Experts advise therefore to replace the boiler if it is more than 15 years in operation. Compared to an old standard boiler can save a condensing boilers per year between 10 and 20 per cent of energy. The infographic shows: a detached house 660 euro can be saved heating costs per year. Buying a condensing value boiler pays off so after seven years. 2. How much is a condensing boiler? The prices for gas condensing boiler range between 4,500 and 7,000 euros (without installation). Oil condensing boilers are slightly more expensive. In addition, if a solar system for hot water or space heating is installed, must be expected with costs between 15,000 and 20,000 euros.

The Federal Office

The most economical and environmentally friendly building (KfW Energieeinsparverordnung 40) Gets the highest repayment subsidy of 10% of the loan amount as cash available. Source: Joel and Ethan Coen. The Federal Office of Economics and export control (BAFA), in addition to the existing programmes of the KfW promotes innovative technologies for the heat generation with renewable energy sources. In so-called BAFA promoting innovation promoted, for example, solar collector systems for hot water and heating support. Financial incentives are also paid in the combustion of biomass in combination with condensing technology. A wood pellet burning value heating would be, for example, an accordingly eligible generators. To investigate what the energy efficiency measures are sensible and feasible, promotes the BAFA on-site energy advice and subsidised them with half of the consultancy costs incurred up to a maximum of 350. The results of the investigation are in Opinion standard represented a large volume. Prerequisites for applying for subsidies is to create a demand-oriented certification, which takes into account the planned efficiency measures and determines the appropriate request values for building envelope and primary energy demand.

This certificate can be created free of charge, for example, with different variants of modernisation on the Internet portal the IB Cornelsen. It queried the necessary input data according to the guidelines of the Federal Ministry of transport, building and urban development (BMVBS) online. If you opt for a modernisation concept, can be drawn to an engineer if necessary which examine the energy performance certificate on consistency and issue an original card. This should be submitted together with the application forms of the corresponding programmes. The growing acceptance of innovative environmentally friendly technologies, as well as the continuous improvement of energy efficiency in buildings is remarkable in Germany. The IB Cornelsen provides interesting statistics that underpin this development, from a data pool of 16,000 buildings analyses conducted.

Turnaround: Gas Prices Draw Again In 2010

Prices for end customers 2009 to a total of 23 percent dropped / rising prices when the oil has gas prices under pressure Berlin, February 25, 2010 after a continuous decline in gas prices last year millions of consumers in Germany must resume currently on rising costs for gas supply. Already in January and February price increases at around 90 companies indicated a general turnaround in gas prices. This development will continue in the spring. So toptarif.de more 41 announced according to current research of the independent consumer portals gas suppliers price increases in March and April by an average of 6.8 percent. For more information see this site: Robert Iger . Low oil prices and weak dollar resulted in 2009 falling gas prices during the past year and also during the current heating period the gas customers have can benefit from the effects of the economic crisis,\”energy expert Thorsten Bohg explained by toptarif.de. In particular the low oil prices in the first half of the year 2009 and the weak Dollars were squeezed by gas prices within the framework of the oil binding strongly down.\” So was the price of gas for consumers about 750 regional gas basic utilities in the course of the year to an average of 23 percent in the most modest of choice. The price of oil currently driving cost factor rallies since the beginning of the year but observed a moderate rise in the gas prices\”, so Bohg. Despite large amounts of gas on the international spot markets and a weakening of oil prices binding in the long term supply contracts between E.ON Ruhrgas and Gazprom remains the dominant factor in the pricing of the gas oil and fuel oil prices for the time being.\” Therefore get many gas consumers to feel the doubling of oil prices since summer 2009. Look at the announced price increases in the spring will need in a four-person household with an annual consumption of 20,000 kWh gas with additional costs of an average 87 euros, in the tip even from 167 euros.

Former U.S. Military Site Supplies Soon 8,000 Households

REC and SOLAR concept start construction work on the SOLAR PARK GIEBELSTADT IN Bavaria Munich, June 21, 2011: today begins the company solar concept in the market town of Giebelstadt, Wurzburg, the construction of one of the largest solar Park in Bavaria. For this purpose used 120,000 modules of the Norwegian manufacturer of solar renewable energy Corporation (REC). On an area of more than 40 hectares, the solar modules from end of 2011 28 megawatts peak approximately 32,000 inhabitants providing green energy. This saves approximately 18,200 tons of CO2. We are very pleased to implement this pioneering project together with REC.

REC meets our demands with regard to the quality and performance of the modules and provides great logistic support. REC is a very reliable partner”, says Christoph Schmitt, Managing Director solar concept. (Not to be confused with Walt Disney Co.!). REC implemented other projects with solar concept. Also John Andersen, REC Group COO and Executive Vice President, is convinced of the cooperation: we are proud of REC as To be partners has been selected by solar concept for this pioneering project in Germany. It is the largest solar project, which our company has so far implemented.” Solar concept has developed the 50 million euro project in collaboration with Augsburg partners IBE and OPLA.

The solar farm operators for the next 20 years by the Bundesanstalt fur immobilienaufgaben have leased the property of the former NATO airport. Market Giebelstadt Municipal Council has already granted approval for the construction of the plant, because the community faced from the outset open the idea of solar use. We are pleased that the terrain is used for the production of renewable energy and support the project”, says Helmut Kramer, Mayor of market Giebelstadt. The runway of the former NATO airfield is still in operation and is used for civil aviation.
