Choose the energy source of your heating

On the other hand, the region and the type of housing can impose choices. Thus, a house in the South, occupied in the summer months, is content with a very simple heating representing a low investment. However, in the case of a principal residence, an efficient system is more justified.
  • The delicate question of cost must also be studied from two angles: the price / heating value ratio and the investment cost / maintenance ratio.
  • Finally, theenvironmental aspect must be taken into account. Renewable energies make it possible to heat and produce domestic hot water in an individual and autonomous way.
