A gas heat pump can be of the 'compression' or 'absorption' type. The first is a variant of the 'traditional' electric heat pump equipped with a compressor which, instead of electricity, uses the mechanical energy generated by a gas engine (methane or LPG). In the case of the absorption heat pump, without compressor, it is instead a completely different technology based on absorption refrigeration cycles.

In this article we will talk about energy saving once again and we will do it by looking at how to save diesel fuel. The strategies for saving diesel fuel are similar to those seen for consuming less petrol: it is true that the more you press the acceleration pedal, the more fuel is consumed, but it is also true that that pedal can be pressed in a much more intelligent way!
The performance of heat pumps is evaluated in terms of efficiency regardless of the different technologies. What changes according to the operating principle is the way of expressing this performance. In the case of compression heat pumps, the efficiency is measured in Coefficient Of Performance (COP) and Energy Efficiency Ratio (EER).
The external walls of buildings can also be thermally insulated with transparent or semi-transparent insulating materials. For example with glass, Plexiglas, polycarbonate or acrylic glass panels. Panels of this type are able to transform a wall into a kind of heat accumulator, with all the advantages of the case.
Aid to Southern companies on the energy saving front. The companies of Calabria, Campania, Puglia and Sicily will be able to benefit in 2014 from subsidized loans at zero interest rate for the reduction of energy consumption. decree of the Ministry of Economic Development, and there is the usual risk that the available funds run out in a short time.
Nothing should be thrown away, here's how to reduce waste! Reducing waste is everyone's duty for the whole of society to support its production. Until half a century ago, the expressions "reduce waste", waste recycling, separate collection and degradable waste were almost completely unknown.
A high energy efficiency boiler is an equipment that carries out the passage of heat to a fluid (water) with the least expenditure of energy. A high energy efficiency boiler has a low impact on the environment and on the energy bill, especially if it is a device that uses clean energy as it happens with solar thermal and solar boilers.
For an irregular Energy Performance Certificate there is a fine which, in the case of Lombardy, ranges from 500 to 2 thousand euros, in addition to the cancellation of the certificate from the regional land registry (which makes the property unsaleable). The alienator for consideration that does not produce the APE risks from 5 thousand to 20 thousand euros.
Energy Performance Certificate (APE) is the document that replaced the previous Energy Certification Certificate (ACE) starting from 6 June 2013. The APE is valid for 10 years but must be renewed and updated in the case of renovations or redevelopment that change the energy class of the building.
Good insulation of the roof from cold but also from heat is important for saving energy and for living comfort. In fact, it is not uncommon for heat losses through the roof to make up 30-40 of the overall losses of a building in winter. Nor is it uncommon for poor roof insulation to overheat the attics and increase air conditioning costs in the summer.
Water is an indispensable resource for life, and it is not renewable! Contributing to saving water is a duty of every citizen, an act of responsibility towards a common good. In this regard, below you will find a series of tips on saving water at home.Water saving, at homePeriodically carry out the classic maintenance work: even small leaks in the long run can result in enormous water wasteInstall smart mixers on taps: old knobs waste a lot of water in the temperature regulation phase Reduce the water pressure: a jet of water that is too strong causes enormous water waste Install the taps with low water consumption: alternatively you can use high-efficiency showers to be installed on the existing taps Insert a regulator for flushing the toilet.
What are the tricks to consume less diesel while driving? A liter of fuel costs around € 1.60 and saving diesel with the car means reducing the running costs of the car by safeguarding wallets and money. Tricks to consume less diesel, from car maintenance to driving style Change the air filter regularly, check the tire pressure at least every two months, travel without any load, use the air conditioning wisely, disassemble the luggage rack, change gear at the right moment… these are measures that can save us diesel in considerable quantities.
Energy Communities are local entities created with the aim of self-producing energy and optimizing its consumption. An Energy Community can be made up of industries, condominiums, public administrations, shopping centers and hospitals that interact with each other by applying energy efficiency measures so as to guarantee advantages in procurement and consequently lower bill costs.
The condensing boiler has low polluting emissions and lower consumption compared to a traditional boiler, but in order for these characteristics to be preserved over time, maintenance must be regular. Maintenance of the condensing boiler must be done at least once a year. Every two years, instead, the verification of the combustion efficiency with the analysis of fumes.
It is interesting to see that EOS - Exposition of Sustainability, the Italian exhibition of environmental sustainability (the first dedicated to the carbon footprint) dedicates ample space to solutions to save energy in buildings. It is no coincidence: the issue of pollution linked to the energy consumption of buildings and low-emission buildings is among the most current.
How to use the dishwasher in order to consume the least amount of electricity possible? The ideal would be to feed the dishwasher directly with hot water from the gas water heater. With some devices it is possible and it is a decidedly convenient solution because electricity is saved and washing times are reduced.
The Efficient User Systems allow an operator who installs a photovoltaic system on the roof of a customer to sell the electricity produced directly to the latter. The novelty of the SEUs consists in the fact that, instead of selling the photovoltaic system, a company in the solar sector can sell the kilowatt hours produced by that system.
After the bad price increases on electricity and gas, we just have to learn how to save at home. In this regard, we refer you to the article "Electricity suppliers how to choose well" In the meantime, we will show you how to save on your electricity bill, following some very useful domestic guidelines.
To thermally insulate your home adequately, specific interventions are also required on the fixtures: heat loss is avoided, consequently saving on the electricity bill. In this regard, we will show you which choices to make to avoid heat loss, especially focusing on the choice of insulating windows.
Energy saving practical tips to apply at home! Today we offer useful tips that will save you some money: aiming at energy saving means cutting CO2 emissions and lightening the cost of the electricity bill.Over the last few years, IdeeGreen has given you several tips on energy saving, most some of which are useful and applicable in everyone's homes.
