Gas heating is becoming more and more expensive every year from an economic point of view. The increase in gas prices is dictated by a gradual decrease in the amount of blue fuel produced. An alternative to gas heating is the use of diesel, electric and solid fuel boilers, which allow not only to eliminate the connection of subscribers to gas pipelines, but also significantly save during the heating season.
Alternative heating is the use of the latest automated heating systems, which are characterized by efficiency, high reliability and efficiency. Alternative heating is primarily beneficial to private homeowners living away from the laid gas pipelines.
Diesel boilers are the most mobile, but the most expensive alternative to gas heating. Installing a diesel boiler is cheaper than installing another type of heating plant. Diesel fuel boilers are characterized by high efficiency and ease of operation. The disadvantages of diesel boilers are the need for regular maintenance and the high cost of fuel.
Electric boilers are considered a relatively good alternative to gas heating. Installation of electric heating is simple, the operation of electric boilers – convenience and reliability. A wide range of adjustments allows you to flexibly configure the electric heating system to a certain degree of heating of each room. Electric heating has a high efficiency (close to 100%) and small dimensions, which allows you to place it in any room. The disadvantages of electric boilers offset all their advantages – they include the high cost of electricity, dependence on stable network performance and high power consumption. Electricity tariffs force residents to use energy-saving appliances, but an electric boiler cannot be called economical – even the smallest unit constantly requires several kilowatts of electricity to operate.
Economical solid fuel boilers are the best alternative to gas heating. The efficiency of solid fuel boiler equipment is 80-95% with a wide range of types of fuel consumed. This fact makes solid fuel boilers the most popular today.
Solid fuel boilers are characterized by high reliability, low sensitivity to changing types of fuel (they burn wood, pellets, wood chips, briquettes, peat, husk equally well), convenience and cost-effectiveness.
Solid fuel boilers are of the following types:
- direct combustion;
- long burning;
- pyrolysis boilers;
- pellet boilers.
The presence of automation greatly facilitates fueling boilers with fuel (pyrolysis – once every two days, long burning – once every two weeks, pellet – in continuous mode) and allows you to control the combustion process for the most efficient use of raw materials.
The use of heating systems using solid fuel makes it possible to significantly save (up to 60% of money); long service life (up to 25 years) of such systems guarantee their quick payback. A wide range of power indicators allows you to choose a solid fuel boiler for residential and industrial premises of any area.
The advantages of the most modern solution – high-tech pellet solid fuel boilers are in the highest efficiency (90%), convenient loading, stability of technical indicators, efficiency and quick payback.
