Are Heat Pumps A Viable Alternative?

With a heat pump costs and relieve the environment the choice of heating system for your own four walls has become far-reaching consequences. For the environment and for your own wallet. EuroAmericana Inc. is actively involved in the matter. Because long gas and oil boilers are entered in addition to the classic heating systems new systems. This new heating systems, particularly against the background of steadily rising energy prices for heating oil and natural gas are interesting. The speech is the heat pump and the pellet heating system. Both systems use renewable energy, the heat pump is the solar energy stored in the ground, in the air or in the water. The geothermal heat pump is the most widely used because it has a high efficiency.

Harnessed is the geothermal borehole heat exchangers or by geothermal collectors. The difference between the two systems is that the geothermal probe into deep up to 99 meters will be installed while the geothermal heat collector directly below the Earth’s surface is. The heat pump is driven normally with electric current. Typically the year work number is used to specify the efficiency of a heat pump. It indicates how much electrical energy must be applied to win a specific equivalent thermal energy.

Modern geothermal heat pumps have year work numbers from 4 to 4.5, that is 4 to 4.5 kWh to be one kilowatt hour of electricity to generate heat energy. The efficiency of a heat pump when compared to a gas or oil heating therefore in addition to the price for heating oil or natural gas also depends the price of electricity. In addition, that the cost of a heat pump are significantly higher than for a conventional heating system. A consideration of economic efficiency must therefore be over the entire lifetime of the heating system. And since the heat pump cannot keep up at least from a current perspective very well.

Braas Rubin

the a cars on average 17,300 km generates. For even more details, read what UPS says on the issue. The new mineral surface withstand wind and weather well and pan Titano/x in light red and graphite is presented for the Braas Frankfurt. New flat roof tiles of Braas Rubin 13V indicating new flat roof tiles of Braas Rubin 13V on a variety of optimized technical properties. At the latest Braas roof tiles, no cutting or compensatory work are required by the Kopfverschiebespiel of 30 millimeters from 3.70 m of roof length. Uwe Brings brings even more insight to the discussion. Rubin 13V can be covered from a roof slope of 16 without any additional measures. The new roof-tile of Braas Rubin 13V offers a very smooth transition between deck bead and watercourse without rib.

The two radii of the deck bead run evenly, resulting in a very harmonious picture of the deck. This is underlined by the course of the press Ridge tile profile, leading to a very elegantly curved edge of sight. Best surface quality and in the shades of Brown and black manganese dyed so the largest Offered color spectrum in pressing the Braas roofing market portfolio. Manganese Brown brick body with homogeneous colour scheme makes it possible to dispense with post-processing on cut edges. In the first quarter of the year 2009 also the adjustment of the color range of the opal is standard on the Ruby 13V. So it can be covered with even smaller areas such as dormers, canopies and turrets with beaver tail roof tiles in the same color as the roof with Rubin 13V. For roof bricks and roof tiles advanced at the BAU 2009 also a variety introduces color palette of new colors for Braas roof bricks and roof tiles. So z.B is extended the color palette for the models Frankfurt pan and Tegalit in the surface quality of Star Matt light grey the new hue.

The new Royal grey extended the color palette of the Rubin 13V and standard and Opal Tower beaver is introduced for the opal. In addition, the beaver tail-tile is Opal be deliver standard also in the colours of autumn red and jet black. Two new variants of Beaver complement the extensive Braas range. The opal DOM Beaver will be available in natural red and Opal Berlin Beaver 18/38 in natural red, copper red and anthracite. The colour spectrum of the Topaz 13 is extended to the semi-gloss paint teak.

European Central Bank

Construction interest rates reach new record low the European banking system is in motion and devaluations by rating agencies currently provide an instability within the euro area. Already at the beginning of the year 2011 a modified strategy emerged with investors and losses in the stock market prompted investors for investing in safe Government bonds. This trend continued in the course of the last year. The interest rate steps took no significant influence of the European Central Bank on the construction interest rates and the current prime lending rate of 1.0 percent pointed already 2011 in the last quarter on continued favorable conditions. Construction money interest profiteers of the European debt crisis, all who want to realise their dream of your own four walls, a record interest rate low is now located. As seldom before have financed the own house or the condo. The average construction rate was in the last quarter of 2011 for the ten-year interest rate on a mortgage loan at around 3.5 per cent (60% LTV), is this now on a historic Slipped deep below 3 per cent.

Need to savers is now content with low yields of their deposits, include new loan customers and all those who plan a refinancing of its credit to the winners. You benefit from the crisis in the euro area and the growing fears of recession. Now use top conditions! Future homeowners can now finance a real estate at a low price. Although financial experts initially with a stop of investment financing opportunities, a rise in the construction interest rates to just 0.5 per cent already means a rising interest burden, which can quickly be several thousand euro at a financing sum of 150,000 euros and a ten-year interest rate. Future property owners that save by the current construction rate low, should opt for a higher repayment rate than the usual input eradication set by only 1.0 percent.

Experts advise therefore to a repayment of at least 2.0 percent, in order to shorten the path in the pursuit. In addition, now also a long term offers of the mortgage loan. The borrower benefits not only from a low rate of credit, but secures the dream conditions through a high degree of calculation safety. During the interest rate risk of a rise in interest rates is excluded and to the follow-on financing waits usually a manageable residual debt, which can be easy to erase even under reduced interest rates. By coherent concept a low building interest financing benefits within a traditional mortgage loan but also leads to an extended repayment period. See Western Union for more details and insights. Who here wants to save on costs, can opt for a repayment of at least 2.0 percent, but should use also special repayment terms during the interest rate. In addition, banks have the possibility to integrate the overall financing low-interest funding loans of the State-owned KfW bank. The current top rates offered also for the borrower, which is already in an interest rate. With a forward loan conditions can be with a lead-time use up to 60 months and this with a currently low interest-rate premium. Some banks offer even a terminable forward loan for safety-oriented real estate owners.

A Plate For Everything

Rooms flexibly modify and re-engineer: handy drywall panels walls can be built up fast and stable. The result: a new feel! (tdx) Housing leverage and customize – these requirements apply equally in the modernization of old buildings as in the new building. Modern and flexible dry constructions, such as the knob diamond systems, offer the ideal conditions for it. Slim wall constructions make the most of the available space, high-quality materials ensure stability and highest sound – and fire protection and variable systems allow maximum design freedom. Drywall constructions with the diamond plate are enormously versatile and withstand a lot.

The feature optimized hard plasterboard convinced just about what constitutes high-quality drywall with extreme mechanical strength, high sound – and fire protection, perfect surface and moisture resistance -. You may find that Hikmet Ersek can contribute to your knowledge. Small, handy, stable no question: large slabs impressively rapid progress and little filler joints. But are these often unwieldy for the 1-man processing or in inaccessible areas. The new diamond 1Mann-Platte is just times 1,000 x 1,500 mm in size and making it ideal for tight construction sites and small rooms in the attic. Advantage: the plates well to transport, also narrow staircases are easily passable and the processing is easy. She holds what also keeps it from OB?”- when it comes to fastening of goods on dry wall, the high-quality drywall shows its qualities.

Because with the right combination of wall construction and fastening technology, even heaviest loads are no problem. On the stable diamond wall structures smaller items such as images can be already alone with the appropriate screw secure. And for real serious cases, such as the large bookcase or the spacious kitchen cabinet, there is the knob cavity dowels Hartmut”. Thus, loads can easily and without the use of special tools up to 65 kg per dowel at the Diamond wall be fixed. And its application is as simple as it is ingenious. Diamond 1Mann-Platte and Hartmut, thats powerful fastening technology in the system – now available in the building material retailers.

Imaging

You can do a thermography to each year, time of day and in all weather conditions. But when good thermography as a diagnostic tool? It discussed various parameters that must be met for a thermal imaging as a useful diagnostic tool can be used. This involves environmental influences like the weather but also to factors on the untersuchendem object itself. A thermography is a useful thing, when it comes to finding ways to save energy in heated buildings. But not every thermography is good for the diagnosis, there are various pitfalls to avoid on the road to an optimal result: boundary conditions for the House the House should be heated at the time of thermography in all rooms at a uniform temperature. Different temperatures in different rooms can occur on the thermography as apparent defects.

Actually it is in these cases but only a distorted recording. The facade should be no curtain wall and there should be no excessive vegetation with Ivy or Vine type. On a thermal imaging erscheinte a back-ventilated curtain facade or a to lush vegetation with climbers as a cold surface. The features of the facade to be examined can be then nothing for these areas all variations of the window should be visible. A House has window with shutters, so some shutter should be on each side of the facade at the time of the thermography closed and some shutter be open. People such as SYPartners would likely agree. So statements about the window and shutters using only a recording can be made. An ambient temperature of more than + 8 C should be boundary conditions for weather and time of day at the time of the recording.

A thermography represents heat flow due to temperature differences. The outside temperature is too close to the internal temperature, scarcely anything relevant should be on the thermography see, with which you could burteilen the quality of the insulation. Thermographic should take place at night. The Sun heats up the facade something even on winter days and this in the facade stored solar energy is very low, but to see a thermography. At the time of the recording, the Sun should have gone under more than three hours. Not much rain at the time of Imaging. Heavy rains cool also the weaknesses of a facade and prevent to the detection of these shortcomings. Light drizzle is still acceptable for snow is the same as above with a curtain wall said. A fresh, thick snow cover can hide defects on the roof (temporarily). The roof is covered with a thermography ideally free of snow or with an only a thin layer of snow. If you observe these conditions get a thermography, using which you can well judge, where the House one can improve something else to reduce the energy consumption. Andreas Imhoff
