GOOD ADVICE ON NEW HEATING SYSTEM

Our general wellbeing depends on a pleasant and reliable supply of heat. On this page, we would like to introduce you briefly to the most important types of heating.

The sheer diversity of advanced heating technologies can be confusing. We would be happy to inform you about the options available for your apartment, home or new building.

WHICH HEATING SYSTEM WOULD SUIT ME?

For many years now, most people have been opting for advanced gas heating systems that use condensing technology. In Germany, this is the most popular type of heating system. The reasons are obvious: in the past, gas was a relatively affordable fuel; most households are connected to the gas mains and therefore require no fuel storage inside the building; and finally, it is a method of heating that, from a technological point of view, is exceedingly well developed.

However, oil heating systems are still a force to be reckoned with, particularly if you live in a rural area where mains gas is not available or you have sufficient space for fuel storage – oil has to be stored locally in tanks, just like LPG, and must also be able to be delivered to site. Advanced condensing technology also makes this an extremely efficient resource.

Heating systems that utilise renewables are becoming increasingly popular. Solar thermal systems and heat pumps have the major advantage of operating with free energy from the environment, such as solar (for solar thermal systems) or energy from the ground, water and the air (for heat pumps). For these cases however, you will need a suitable buffer or DHW cylinder that provides intermediate storage for the energy harvested from the environment, so you have heat available should the sun refuse to shine.

Heating costs compared

These different types of heating system vary regarding both purchase costs and operating costs.
