What makes copper so attractive for heating?
You are always on the safe side with copper tubes, whatever heating system you have chosen. And in two ways. It makes no difference whether you heat with oil, gas or a geothermal system. Thanks to their material properties, copper tubes are ideally suitable for all types of heating. Copper tubes for wall, underfloor or conventional heating installations are not only a sound investment but additionally help to save energy.
Copper can also save energy?
With the exception of electric cookers, central heating pumps are the most inefficient electricity consumers in private households. Studies have shown that 90 percent of all central heating pumps have design weaknesses. What is more, the fittings of other tube systems may inhibit the flow of water, forcing the pump to work harder than necessary. The cross sections of copper tubes, on the other hand, are constant throughout the installation. This means that a system built entirely with copper tubes can reduce pump action by up to 50 percent. That is good for your wallet and for the environment.
What are pellets?
Wood pellets are made of pressed sawdust and wood shavings, i.e. waste material, and are burned in pellet heating installations. Since wood is a renewable raw material, pellet heating is used in combination with solar panels to reduce CO² emission and to save energy.
Conventional boiler vs. pellet burner
The main difference between a conventional boiler and a pellet burner stove is that the latter runs on hard fuel. The entire system has to be adapted to this type of heating, from storage to the flue, to reduce maintenance and obtain a maximum of convenience and functionality.
Pellets are industrially produced and practical to handle. A pellet heating system can therefore have all the advantages of a modern heating installation. Because their energy content is so high, a few square metres of storage space will normally be enough for a year's supply. Modern silo vehicles deliver the pellets and blow them into the pellet store. The exact quantity is automatically recorded.
