What becomes of one kWh of energy?

Here is an example.

Make the comparison yourself! A pellet boiler must produce temperatures of up to 1,000°C for a room temperature of 20°C. Meaning a single-family house needs approx. 5 tons of wood per season. Heat loss is also enormous with gas and oil. Does it still make economic sense? In this respect, direct heat emission offered by high-tech infra-red scores big.

Professional consultancy helps save energy

Our experience has shown that making calculations based on objective standards leads to the most significant results. In Austria, this standard is the “economic comparative calculation for energy systems” (ÖNM7140). It offers a complete representation of your cost-benefit calculation. This allows objective comparison of different systems.

Ecological and economical

Tons of timber, pellets or oil – these are quantities that must be transported. Natural gas must cross continents. This costs a lot of money and resources. Even a heat pump, as the comparison shows, is costly; it needs a lot of space, maintenance and an electric drive. easyTherm customers are happy to have found a sustainable solution that is smoke-free, requires little space and consumes considerably less energy . easyTherm efficiently uses the practical benefits of electrical power. Photovoltaics and an energy storage system are perfect additions to an ecological house.

Good news – we do the math for you

With a professional heating design such as is included in the service package of easyTherm and its partners, all essential cost factors are taken into account: So you plan in advance how much your heating costs today and in the future. The following aspects are taken into account:

  • Acquisition costs – financial costs
  • Operating costs for service, maintenance, delivery, storage
  • Consumption costs depending on the thermal heat requirement

A comparison of operating costs already shows that maintenance-free heating with electricity from the socket saves considerable energy. This system decreases the heating requirement, since radiant heat offers a quicker and better sense of well-being. 

This is what the cost-benefit calculation for a house with 150 m² of living space & an energy rating of 30 per year looks like:
