Many European energy consumers will receive their heating bills for 2017 during these weeks. Anyone who is angry about the rising heating costs, should now start with the switch to a modern, economical heating system. Summer is the time to prepare for the next winter.
The long winter and constantly increasing energy prices for oil and gas at the end of the year have caused many consumers to pay higher heating costs than expected. This is annoying, but many citizens can use their own resources to reduce the costs of warm homes and hot water – by switching to highly efficient and modern heating systems that save heating costs in the long term and protect the environment.
“Many consumers in Europe only renew their old heating if it breaks down. This happens stupidly mostly in winter when heat is needed urgently. As a rule, then there is no time to find out about the different heating technologies, compare offers or talk to energy consultants about future-proof investments, “says David Wedepohl, Managing Director of the German Solar Industry Association. In particular, if the use of particularly efficient heating technologies or renewable energies would make sense, an emergency exchange would often be counterproductive. Because it is based on the technology that is available quickly and not the cheapest. Wedepohl: “When replacing a heating system, important opportunities are missed to save money in the long term with an efficient heater and to protect against rising energy prices. “Spring is therefore the ideal time to learn more about the solutions available on the market and to compare efficient new heating systems. In the summer or fall, these can then be easily replaced.
