The investments necessary in order to use this innovative product are less than half of the costs of exchanging a low-temperature boiler with a condensing model. The bottom line is that, based on calculations for homes, installation of a heat exchanger pays for itself within four to nine years. And money is saved during operation as well. For example, annual consumption of 2,000 liters of oil can be reduced by 150 to 300 liters.
Guido Jobst also emphasizes the positive effect on the environment. ”According to chimney sweepers’ statistics, there are approximately 1.75 million fan-driven heating systems that are capable of supplying 25 to 80 kW and are up to 15 years old in Germany. If we were to retrofit only 500,000 of them, the environment would be positively affected by an annual reduction of 600,000 tons of CO2 gases.”
To tap into this market even further, ATEC now offers new systems comprised of a combination of a heat exchanger and CHP (co-generator). For the future, Guido Jobst plans to retrofit the heat exchanger so it can be used with pellet boilers. ”The potential is there,” he claims. <
