How to save on heating costs. Several advice from no cost to average cost high

Save on heating

How to save on heating. With the arrival of cold you turn on the heating and returns to make its weight felt on the portfolio the gas bill. While the price of energy increases, driven by the rising price of crude oil, on the other hand you can reduce your consumption (and the bill) by adopting more rational behavior. The heating is a major cost of running a home. It is estimated that each household spends annually about EUR 1,300-1,500 on your gas bill for heating. To this is added the cost of the boiler and maintenance. E 'should therefore be used sparingly heating in the house. Here is a list of practical tips to reduce the expense of heating:

What are the optimal temperatures for proper conditioning in summer and in winter?

What is the best temperature of the air conditioner? The air conditioner helps us to overcome the hot days and sultry summer. And 'Simply set the desired temperature and the unit will begin to carry out its work, adjusting the humidity and the temperature of the indoor environment. The climate control system allows to obtain an optimum indoor climate for the well being of the body and often reduces the suffering summer of older people. Especially in the cities and in the urban environment. And 'more appropriate not to overdo it with the air conditioning and avoid setting too low temperatures. In addition to increased power consumption, temperatures are too low may cause damage to health.

Practical tips to lower your intake of air-conditioner: the sun protection film

In recent years the strong diffusion of air conditioners portable and stationary (the classic penguin) have greatly increased consumption of electricity during the 'summer, arriving in the past also cause blackouts.

This does not mean that we have to reduce power consumption to give up any kind of comfort, but maybe try to make these consumption a little more intelligent and targeted, this is.

What I want to talk about today are called "sun protection film."

Heat pump water heaters: definition and convenience

The water heater heat pump is a product still relatively little known in Italy, also because of the widespread use of gas in urban areas. In fact, the spread in their homes warmers gas has already allowed to mitigate significantly the consumption of electricity related to the old electric water heater.

A further help the environment and our pockets, derives from the spread of another mode of heating water for domestic use: the water heater heat pump, or more widely known as heat pump water heat pump water heater or even heat.

For those who still have an electric water heater, replacement by a heat pump system could bring huge benefits, even estimated at around 70%.

Heat pump water heaters: tips for use, installation and maintenance

In the choice of the heat pump should be considered:

- The climatic characteristics of the place where it is installed

- The typological characteristics of the building

- The conditions of use.

The climatic characteristics are important especially where the cold source is the outside air: you can in fact have, during the winter, the formation of frost on the evaporator, resulting in poor heat transfer. To overcome this drawback, the heat pump is in general, however, equipped with a defrosting device (eg an electric resistance).

Certification of the European Union for biofuels

There are different types of biofuel: those who consume soil and edible raw materials and those that promote sustainable development. The system for certifying sustainable biofuels launched by the European Commission promotes these days just the production of those fuels that represent a viable alternative to fossil fuels, encouraging a healthy carbon cycle, preserving soils that are rich, like that of tropical forests and, at the same time reducing CO2 emissions into the atmosphere.

Both biofuels locally produced and imported products used within the EU borders will have to meet certain sustainability criteria: in the first place should not be attributable to crops that once housed rainforest or natural grassland with a unique ecosystem, and even feature more importantly, they keep the emissions of greenhouse gases, generated by the entire chain of production, at least at lower levels by 35% compared to fossil fuels. A minimum threshold that is set to increase over time.

Abolition incentives for photovoltaic panels installed on agricultural land

Photovoltaics, stop to incentives for photovoltaic panels installed on agricultural land

The Council of Ministers approved within the package of liberalization, a rule that eliminates the incentives for the installation of photovoltaic panels on the farmlands. Now the area will be under discussion in the parliament.

One of the main side effects of the policy of support for renewable energies involved, covering installation of photovoltaic panels, the consumption of agricultural soils. Many arable land, in recent years, have been re-directed to the production of solar energy in order to meet the needs of the territory but only to take advantage of government incentives. Such speculation has generated a surplus of unused kilowatts (also because of the age of the network that is not able to handle the surplus) and, simultaneously, has impoverished the agricultural sector devaluating the production and depleting the yield of the land "overshadowed" by the panels , very difficult to recover.

As it makes the installation of a photovoltaic system?

Here comes the Fifth Energy Bill in July and reduces the incentives for photovoltaics. How to change the cost and performance of your solar system?

Hold on, here comes the Fifth Energy Bill. Who had in mind to install on the roof of a home PV system will from July to having to deal with a new amendment to the rules of incentives: the third, in the space of two years. Among the main novelties there is a reduction in tariffs that is expected to be, on average, in the order of 35%, with the main cuts reserved for large systems. Stop the bonuses for the panels "made in Europe" and for the removal of asbestos from the rooftops. It will also be mandatory to register the power plants up to 12 kW, a bureaucratic exercise that was previously reserved for plants larger size. The new legislation will come into force from July this year, as long as both the spending ceiling was reached 6 billion expected in the current provisions. So there are still a few months to bring into operation of plants taking advantage of older, more profitable tariffs.

Practical tips to reduce energy consumption of the refrigerator

In this short but comprehensive list of tips we learn to reduce the power consumption of the refrigerator. It does not matter if your refrigerator is of type A, B, C etc.. - These tips are valid for any model and any energy class. Change some small habit can extend the life of your appliance and shorten the amount of the electricity bill. Let's see how.

The refrigerator should never be attached to the wall. Always allow adequate space, for example, 10 cm, to allow good air ventilation. If the refrigerator is too close to the air tends to overheat, increasing consumption and the risk of failure.

What are the Italian legislation concerning the protection of waters? Bathing, drinking water purification

Italy is characterized by a broad regulatory framework regarding the safeguarding and protection of the natural environment with regard to: the purification of water, reuse of treated wastewater, water purification, monitoring of bathing water, the reclamation of contaminated sites. I will try to expose the vast subject of a legislative in a schematic and simple, with the contents of fundamental principle and the techniques and technologies most important operational, with the aim of giving a complete picture of the topic that everyone can then deepen in relation to their level of interest!
