Many important steps towards self-sufficient energy supply have
already been taken. But much is still being developed. Therefore, it is important to think about the possibilities of tomorrow when planning today.
Buildings that are still heated with oil or gas today can, for example, be supplemented by electric radiators in the short term and converted into completely different heating in the long term. But even today you can heat an entire building exclusively with electric radiators using a photovoltaic system. Below are a few key points:
• a house with average insulation and about 100 m² requires about 6,500 kWh annually with our AeroFlow® electric radiators
• a conventional PV system with 10 kWp is sufficient for this
• for a 10 kWp solar system you need about 100 m² roof area
Due to the extremely high prices of gas and oil, there are hardly any major differences compared to heating with electricity. At the same time, you can further minimize your costs by feed-in tariffs, saving on a conventional oil or gas heating system, and due to the lack of maintenance costs such as chimney sweeping or the wear of parts in the heating system. Optimized use of heating and good building insulation can reduce costs further.
