Profitability and environment
Environmentally friendly energy
Electricity is environmentally friendly energy and produced in many ways. Today there is much focusing on environmentally friendly electricity production, so that in the future, production which could be harmful to the environment may be phased out.
Power consumption, Economy and Environment
A decrease in energy consumption for heating purposes is essential both for environmental reasons and to decrease energy cost. To achieve this without compromising the comfort we would like to have, there are some basic conditions that must be present:
• The heating system must be responsive, i.e. it can be rapidly heated
and rapidly cooled.
• The heat source must be collocated with the heat requirement, that is,
in every single room.
• The temperature in each room must be possible to regulate,
independently of the others rooms.
• The system must have high efficiency even when heating demand
• It should provide the desired heat distribution.
Direct electric heating is the only method that can meet all these requirements; good thermal management, good heat distribution, and rapid heating and cooling. With this system, each room is heated, independently of all the others, with near 100% efficiency. It does not require open solutions in order for the heat to reach the desired area, and rooms with low demand for heating can be shut off by simply closing the door.
The disadvantage of many alternative heating systems is that they need a long time to bring the temperature up, and continue to radiate heat for a long time after they are switched off. This is energy you pay for, which is really not needed!
Heating through use of air-air heat pumps require open solutions. That is, one is forced to warm up areas where there normally is no heating demand. In addition, there is often a limited lifespan and a requirement for maintenance substantially greater and more expensive than that of any direct electrical heating systems.
When the costs of different heating systems are compared in the media, the investment costs, transport costs, maintenance costs, repair costs and differences in efficiency are often "forgotten". This easily distorts the consumer’s perception of the facts when it comes to evaluation of energy consumption and private/household finances.
