The energy performance certificate is mandatory! What homeowners need to know which card variant is the correct? The revised energy saving Regulation (EnEV 2007) into force occurs at the 01.10.2007. This establishes the legal basis for the introduction of energy performance certificates for existing buildings which are prescribed for new buildings since 2002. Thus what is self-evident in refrigerators or washing machines, will in future also apply to residential and non-residential buildings. Details can be found by clicking Bank of New York Mellon or emailing the administrator. Through the energy performance certificate, building can be energetically evaluated and compared with each other. Owners who sell their house or their apartment, lease or rent new, must submit in the future the energy performance certificate the purchaser or tenant at its request.

It is not in the implementation phase to bottlenecks at the card show, the following schedule was set by the Federal Government for different buildings. The energy performance certificate is compulsory: July 2008 for residential buildings of the construction completion years until 1965 January 2009 for later built residential July 2009 for non-residential buildings thus must be owners who sell a residential building that was built before 1965, new rent, lease or lease holder of a certification to 01.07.2008. This applies to newer residential buildings only at 01.01.2009. which pass for which building? Basically there are two variants of the demand-oriented – or consumption-oriented energy performance certificate. The building envelope, the building materials used and the heating system are considered in the demand-oriented energy performance certificate (certificate of need). As a result, the heat loss of the building is calculated. The result is an objective analysis of the energetic quality of the building.

The consumption-oriented energy performance certificate (consumption card) determines the energy consumption per square metre based on the creation of heating bills for the last three years. Measured consumption but very much depends on the behavior of the lessee, weaknesses of the building can be very difficult show. The EnEV 2007 writes for certain buildings before the variation of the energy pass: residential buildings with up to 4 apartments (planning application not modernized before 01.11.1977,): demand ID from 01.10.2008 duty all other residential and non-residential buildings as well as the above-mentioned, according to specifications from warm protection Regulation (11.08.1977) were modernized: freedom of choice between requirements or consumption card however has however the legislature until September 30, 2008 for owners and landlords of residential buildings the unrestricted freedom of choice between demand and consumption-oriented ways for all building allows.

The Infra-red Heating

Frequently asked questions about the infrared heating due to infrared heaters ElectroSmog? Avoid beams of infrared heating through the glass? These and other questions are answered here. Are this infrared waves hazardous to health? In any case, the use of infrared heaters is not dangerous. The generated infrared radiation moves in the harmless band, the one which is used for medical purposes. If you have no sunlight allergy, then also infrared heaters for you should be no problem. What expenses do I have with high-quality infrared panels? Infrared heating systems are completely trouble-free. Under certain circumstances, you every now and again the individual heaters should wipe to remove any dirt, as well as other furnishings in the apartment. When my heating is constantly in operation, will the current cost be not enormously high? If you properly apply infrared heaters, as well as with a thermostat, so the infrared heating is usually not more than a few hours be switched on per day.

Overall, infrared heaters are highly efficient. Compared to conventional heating with oil or gas heaters with maintenance work connected infrared. There is virtually no heat loss consecutive quick warm-up during aeration. Takes a flat screen by the infrared rays damage? In any case, in this regard you need don’t worry. Flat screens are manufactured so that they can absorb solar radiation and this is considerably stronger than the power of an infrared heating system. Created by infrared heaters ElectroSmog? The majority of manufacturers are almost all infrared heating systems elektrosmogarm and below the legally prescribed norm. The resulting strain is similar to a conventional light bulb.

If you are not sensitive to this, you can stay still worry. Infrared heaters are a to modern concept for me. Should I wait for the time being once until there is more experience of infrared rays? The infrared heater is not a current invention. Also many years ago was heated with a similar concept – namely with the tiled stove. Escape the radiation the infra-red heating through the glass? This is only partly so. The beams of infrared heating escape just five per cent through the window, and almost no medium wavelength of radiation because window glass lets go through particularly long-wave rays of the Sun. However, it is not recommended to set your infrared heating systems, because Yes glass can not use as a heat storage on the window. It is more advantageous to align the infrared heating panels en on an interior wall or on a piece of furniture. An installation on the ceiling is mostly advisable, unless the Board is composed of natural elements such as wood. The infrared heater of aquarium water can be hot? No, this is not possible! Because the glass of an aquarium can pass up only 5% of the heating radiation, this performance is clearly too small to heat the water in your aquarium. Mark Tugenlieb

Anders Condensing

More efficient condensing technology increases the efficiency of oil heaters and is therefore environmentally friendly. Over many decades, the oil burner was the system of choice when it came to modern heating. Speaking candidly Danny Meyer told us the story. She has replaced old coal-fired ovens in many homes because it burns cleaner, developed less soot and the supply of the fuel is easier. New York Museums does not necessarily agree. Modern oil heaters have but now nothing more with the old models with constant boiler in common. Roughly speaking, an oil heater still consists of a boiler, a burner, a pump, the exhaust duct, the heating pipes and of course the radiators.

In the boiler, water is heated by combustion of fuel that flows through the heating, cooled then the boiler flows back and is warming up again. The gases resulting from the combustion derive from outward through the chimney. In conventional and low-temperature boilers must exhaust the water vapour in the exhaust gas does not reach a certain temperature, thus condensed and versottet the fireplace or boiler corrodes. Oil heaters with condensing Anders in a modern oil heating system with condensing technology. Here, the heat in the exhaust gas is used. It is cooled via heat exchanger so far, that condenses the water vapor. This condensate is derived. For an oil heater with condensing technology, a new exhaust pipe is necessary because the exhaust is so cool.

For new buildings, this represents a great advantage, because the exhaust pipe requires significantly less space than a large chimney. The efficient use of the fuel oil heating achieved very high efficiency with condensing technology. That in turn is accompanied by a very low consumption of fuel oil. Savings of twenty to forty percent old constant boilers are quite. Modernization this high saving potential shows that it is worth for consumers anyway even with a modernisation, to draw an oil heater with condensing technology into account. The slightly higher cost will pay for itself in a modernization within a very short time, especially as rising prices for heating oil must be assumed.

More and more uranium comes from hot crisis zone of Kazakhstan Astrid Schneider cleaned up with one of the cheekiest atom lies. Because dasUran of the German nuclear reactor comes more from unsafe regions of crisis. “Uranium is absolutely no indigenous energy sources, as Germany is dependent on imports to 100 percent. Also, depending on the Kazakhstan, located in high-explosive hotspots between Afghanistan, Pakistan, China, Russia, and the Iran. “, said the Green deputies Astrid Schneider.

She systematically disguised uranium by the industry and the Federal Ministry of Economics supply situation, criticized Schneider sharp. “” Because even on the homepage of the Federal Ministry of Economics is wrongly claimed that uranium is a domestic energy source “, just because the refining step” achievements of uranium in Germany. She took kursierender even if the IPCC scenarios of nuclear – that the so-called nuclear renaissance ideologically driven to speculative uranium resources and more speculative technologies, such as always based fast breeder technology shifted again in the distant future or of nuclear fusion. German nuclear reactors are all homicidal underinsured an energy future with more nuclear power would be safer and cheaper for the consumer? In the case of a nuclear disaster, the German nuclear operators were all homicidal underinsured. “, said Astrid Schneider, who is responsible in the Berlin House of representatives for consumer protection.

Schneider explained that the liability for nuclear power plants in Germany is only 2.5 billion euros. According to Swiss nuclear supervisory authority, the expected costs of a GAU cheat approximately 4.3 trillion euros. If the damage is but the 1700-fache (!) of the ridiculously low nuclear liability sum of 2.5 billion euros. The gigantic damage and consequential damages would shuffle off profit-hungry nuclear power plant operators on the general public and therefore the injured citizens. “Not to mention the fact that Germany indefinitely to the nuclear contaminated no go area”, still under the level a dysfunctional developing country, would fall. Council of experts sees light at the end of the tunnel In the context of the envisaged energy concept of the Federal Government with the incident nuclear power discussion by June 25, 2010 the cost of nuclear, the uranium supply situation and incident record discussed. Based on a recent study, but also a contrasting view was offered by Dr. Christian Hey feasible switching to 100% abolishing nuclear power running renewable energies on. With corresponding political will in the renewable energy revolution is possible, in 30 years to 100 percent the Secretary-General of the Council of advisers of the Federal Government of Christian Hey.
