Modern heating systems. Ecological and economical.
Even if one does not suspect it in times of energy saving and environmental protection, fossil energies such as natural gas and crude oil are not yet written off for the heating system. This is made possible by energy-efficient condensing technology. Because boilers with condensing technology have an efficiency of up to 98 percent, d.h. with condensing technology, almost the entire thermal energy of the fuel is converted into heating energy. Condensing boiler technology thus still makes sense, even if we also check during consultation whether another option might be more suitable. In addition, you can save quite a bit of money on existing condensing boiler systems through regular heating checks and the right settings.
How condensing technology works
The good energy utilization of the condensing technology succeeds with a small physical trick. Instead of simply letting the warm exhaust gases with the water vapor contained in them escape to the chimney, as is the case with conventional boilers, the water vapor is condensed in condensing boiler technology. This creates heat, which is used for heating. This saves natural gas and oil and ultimately cash on heating costs.
Particularly attractive: Despite the enhanced technology, appliances with condensing technology are still as compact as conventional wall-mounted boilers. The initial costs are also a justifiable, comparatively inexpensive investment. Let us gladly make you an offer. In addition, hundreds of euros are saved again over time. Another advantage of condensing technology: it is relatively easy to combine with a solar thermal system. That saves once again costs with the water treatment. At the same time, condensing technology provides security when it comes to hot water. So even on cold, cloudy winter days no one has to freeze under a cold shower.
Modernizing old buildings with condensing technology
But it is not only in new buildings and in combination with alternative energy sources that investing in a boiler with condensing technology makes sense. Retrofitting in old buildings is also worthwhile. Compared to decades-old boilers, up to 30 percent in heating costs can be saved. Even in relation to relatively new low-temperature boilers, condensing technology cuts fuel consumption by 10 percent.
The sun provides energy every day in inexhaustible quantities – free of charge and without any pollutant emissions! With the right (solar) technology, you can use this energy for hot water and comfortable residential heating. This can also be retrofitted on your roof or carport in a large or small version in an optically appealing way. Also in combination with a heat pump system a sensible investment in the future.

How does a solar system work??
In principle, a solar system works like a garden hose lying in the sun: the sun heats the solar fluid circulating in it via the absorber in the collector. This is transported via a circulation pump to the lower heat exchanger of the solar storage tank. Here, the transfer of thermal energy to the drinking water takes place in the storage tank. If the solar radiation is not sufficient to heat the drinking water, the z. B. a conventional heating system in the storage tank to the desired set temperature after. The plants provide an annual average coverage of ca. 60% of the drinking water requirement.
Solar systems can be used not only to heat domestic hot water, but also to provide additional heating support: In this process, the sun heats the solar fluid circulating inside via an absorber in the collector. This is transported to the storage tank by a circulation pump in the solar station. The heat is stored in a combined storage tank, a buffer storage tank in combination with a drinking water station or a bivalent storage tank with a buffer storage tank.
The integration into the heating system is usually realized via a return increase of the heating circuit. The systems typically provide solar coverage of approx. 25 – 30%.
All heating construction measures that reduce the burden on the environment and save energy are subsidized by the federal, state or local governments. This applies to regenerative energies even to a special extent. That's why it pays to act quickly, especially when it comes to solar systems: you can get z. B. currently from the federal government for a system in the stock for combined solar water heating and heating support 120 € / m² up to 40m ² collector area and beyond + 45 € / m² for each additional square meter of gross collector area. In addition, the KfW loan program offers you low-interest loans that are fixed for 20 years, provided you replace your old heating unit with a solar system. Application forms are available from your local bank. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us!
Heat pump system
Heat pumps are the first choice when it comes to combining heating cost savings and environmentally friendly heat generation. Because the energy that uses a heat pump heating, the environment provides unlimited and free of charge. The full heating system requires only a small amount of electricity for the drive and pump to make this energy usable. A heat pump works independently of fossil fuels and actively contributes to the reduction of Co2 emissions and thus to climate protection. In combination with a solar system (but this doesn't have to be), it's possible to get even more free energy out of it. Another plus point, there are government subsidies that make the installation even more interesting. We have a competent partner at our side in the company Viessmann!
How a heat pump works!
Heating like a refrigerator: the heat pump works on a simple principle and achieves an astonishingly effective effect. Put simply, it works like a refrigerator – only in reverse. While the refrigerator conducts heat to the outside, the heat pump takes energy from the ground, air or groundwater through the heating system into the living space.
