Protecting the environment and reducing heating costs – a sustainable heating system makes both possible. But how do I switch to renewable energies? Start with an impetus consultation, which is supported by the canton depending on the region. We will show you the advantages of this type of advice – and how you can benefit from energy-efficient heating.
Do you still heat electrically, with gas or oil, but would like to switch to a renewable heating system? Then have the impetus consultant show you the options for clean and sustainable heating. Experienced energy specialists offer consulting in your home. During the visit, which will take approximately one hour, the specialist will check whether a heat pump, district heating, solar energy or local wood, with pellets or chips, is suitable for you. Every property requires an individual solution. Together, you can select the right renewable heating system.
A heating system has a lifespan of 10 to 20 years. Study the issue in good time and without pressure before your heating stops working. How about just before the next heating season?
You may receive a grant for the "Renewable Heating" impetus consultation. Is your heating system more than ten years old and your building a detached house or a small apartment building with a maximum of six apartments? If so, you meet the requirements. You don't have to apply for funding; it is sufficient to arrange an impetus consultation with a specialist. Enter your postcode in the search field and choose your preferred expert. Your energy advisor will receive the funding for consulting. Remember to involve all those concerned, such as co-owners, in the planning process in good time.
If you replace a fossil-based heating system with a renewable one, you may receive additional subsidies. You must apply for these before you start construction. However, the payment will only be made after the connection. Please note that a building permit may be required when replacing a heating system. Find out more from your local authority.
Benefits for the environment and your property
The advantage of energy-efficient heaters is that they increase the value of your property. In addition, you will contribute long-term to the climate over the next 20 years. Because with renewable heating, you can reduce CO2 emissions to almost zero. If you use domestic resources for heating, this will also reduce dependence on foreign countries and create jobs in Switzerland.
Although renewable heating systems cost a lot to purchase, your heating costs will drop in the long term. In addition to the investment costs, your calculation must also take into account the expected lower operating costs over a lifetime of 20 years. The heating cost calculator gives you an estimate of the effective costs. You should also include any subsidies in your planning.
