GRDF informs you about the benefits of natural gas
In partnership with GrDF
Natural gas, an energy full of strengths
Natural gas has many advantages. First of all, it's one of the most competitive energies in the market:
So you can save almost 500 euros (1513-1046 = 467 euros) per year by switching to natural gas thanks to the competitiveness of natural gas and efficient and modern natural gas heating solutions.
Natural gas is also a future energy that can be coupled with renewable energies, perfectly meeting the requirements of tomorrow's housing. Natural gas can also come from a renewable energy source: biomethane (or biogas), product of the decomposition of waste that can be injected into the network.
To benefit from the most relevant natural gas heating solution for you, GRDF and its natural gas specialists can inform you about:
- efficient natural gas solutions
- public aid available, subject to meeting the conditions of eligibility
Discover the condensing gas boiler
The natural gas condensing boiler is the central piece of equipment for a high-performance installation with many advantages for the user.
In fact, the condensing boiler allows you to benefit from constant heating comfort even in very cold weather, while allowing you to save energy.
How is it possible ? The condensing gas boiler operates as follows: gas burns to generate heat, then, during the combustion of the gas, the device captures the fumes produced and cools them for maximum heat before rejecting them.
This type of boiler thus recuperates the latent heat contained in the steam of the fumes, which allows you to obtain a yield superior to 100% * and to benefit up to 20% of energy savings ** compared to a standard boiler.
Thanks to this mode of operation, the condensing gas boiler guarantees you to reach and maintain a constant efficiency during the heating period, making you benefit from a reliable, stable and therefore very comfortable heating solution.
Finally, the installation of a condensing boiler with natural gas is eligible for public aid: zero rate loan, tax credits, reduced rate VAT... so many aids for a lower investment for consumers.
Opting for such equipment, so enjoy a warm and enveloping warmth even in the middle of winter, without weighing on your wallet!
For more information on natural gas and its equipment, do not hesitate to contact a GRDF expert.
