The price of energy has increased significantly in recent months, and for many families it is practically impossible put the heating if they don’t have any help. Faced with this situation, there are those who look for different alternatives to heat their home in winter without paying a fortune. Well, one of the best options that currently exists are aerothermal systems that, although they require a very high investment, are amortized in the long term.
These systems are especially suitable for homes of more than 100 square meters, and can be installed using radiating floor or low temperature radiators. Underfloor heating bases its operation on a network of pipes installed under the pavement through which hot water circulates, so that the heat radiates from the ground. In this way, great thermal comfort is achieved with minimal consumption.
In underfloor heating systems, the water temperature it is between 30 and 45 degrees, so it is well below the supply temperature required by conventional heating systems. In addition, the flow rate required for its operation is also lower, so energy consumption is much lower. It can mean savings of up to 20% on the bill.
Aid of 6,500 euros to pay for heating
Although installing these systems has a very high cost, there are subsidies for it, as part of the Next Generation funds of the European Union and in the Recovery, Transformation and Resilience plan of Spain. The aid will be in force until December 31 and is intended for residential use only.
There are many requirements What is important to know in advance:
- The homeowner does not have to have received another grant to install the equipment. In addition, he has to commit to continuing to own it for another five years from the installation of the system.
- It must be demonstrated that the aerothermal equipment will be used with air-water technology. This technology must have a seasonal yield of at least 2.5 COP and have a mobile monitoring system for energy production and consumption.
- The installation must comply with the requirements of the Building Thermal Installation Regulations (RITE).
Depending on the equipment purchased, help to pay for heating can be up to 6.500 euros. There are subsidies of up to an additional 5% if the home is located in a municipality with less than 5,000 inhabitants.
To request it, the first thing is to ask for a installation estimate. Then, it is sent electronically along with the personal data of the home owner to the corresponding body of the autonomous community.
