Winter is approaching and The risk of power cuts threaten . Add to that energy prices that fly away from the War in Ukraine . In this context, is it better to favor, electricity , gas , Bois or keep its old oil boiler? In other words, what is the least expensive? Hello Watt, energy advisor with more than 250,000 users, has screened several heating systems. The web platform created in 2017 took an example a 100 m² house. And for those who live in an apartment? " You depend on the goodwill of your condominium if you are in collective heating. In the event that it is individual, condominiums refuse, in 90% of cases, the installation of a heat pump. Or impose drastic constraints (in terms of decibels) for the remaining 10% , "explains Gautier Villard, head of energy and solar renovation at Hello Watt.

Junior minister says it is ‘disappointing’ Ukrainians left without accommodation

  Junior minister says it is ‘disappointing’ Ukrainians left without accommodation Minister of State at the Department of Agriculture Martin Heyden said this was not the space the Government wanted to be in. The Fine Gael TD added that from Monday an overnight facility will be in place at Dublin Airport to take in refugees who arrive on late flights, before being processed at the Citywest transit hub the next day.The Government admitted on Thursday that it cannot rule out that Ukrainian refugees will not end up on the streets due to a shortage of accommodation.

It is, in fact, the air-water heat pump which is the most economical, whether you are equipped with a hot water network or not (see the graph below) . It will cost you 1512 euros per year on average throughout the duration of the equipment (20 years on average as for all other heating systems). " This heat pump works on electricity, a relatively expensive energy, but it transforms a kWh consumed in 3 kWh of heat produced. This allows you to have a very low consumption and makes it the most interesting heating to install , "analyzes Gautier Villard. A downside and it is high: for installation, count between 10,000 and 15,000 euros. Despite public and private aid, the most modest will have to pay 3,500 euros. An amount far from being negligible for these populations. It remains to be seen whether the banks, requested by the government, will be ready to finance these sums.

“Stimulating Protest”: Violence against refugees

 “Stimulating Protest”: Violence against refugees Linking politician Kerstin Köditz is increasingly fearing attacks on refugees in Saxony and has asked the state government to act. "It not only threatens a wave of attacks and attacks like six or seven years ago, but this wave has already hit us," said the interior expert of her party of the German Press Agency. "The current accumulation of acts cannot be dismissed at all." For example, last Friday, unknown window panes of the former “Spreehotel” had thrown in in Bautzen and laid fire there.

shortage of wood pellets

other solution, slightly more expensive than the heat pump, but more ecological: wood. For two years, this fuel has been on the rise. The least expensive and aesthetic solution is the pellet stove (1637 euros per year). But here again the rest at the expense remains high: 4,600 euros on average. However, this heating system is only suitable for households that are not equipped with a hot water network. The others will have to opt for a biomass boiler, a little more expensive (1845 euros per year) and less comfortable because it is necessary to be able to store the pellets and the logs. A downside: the wood industry suffers from a supply problem but which will quickly be resolved, according to Hello Watt. " The sector has not been able to anticipate the high demand . Consequence: prices have climbed heavily in 2 years. But, unlike gas and fuel oil, this inflation, for wood pellets, is only periodic , "says Gautier Villard.

This tragic abandoned manor is bigger than Buckingham Palace

  This tragic abandoned manor is bigger than Buckingham Palace Located around the world, these self-build homes and renovation projects all faced their fair share of difficulties. From the Georgian townhouse that dramatically collapsed, to a 24,000-square-foot mansion that remains unfinished despite four decades of work, these might just be the world's most disastrous home projects.

What about gas, electricity and Fioul ? If your accommodation is connected to the network, natural gas is the 3rd solution to favor, after the heat pump and wood. But it will cost you some 5,000 euros from your pocket, despite the aid, to install a very high performance gas boiler and a consumption of more than 2,300 euros per year! In the event that your property is not connected to the network, high performance electric radiators are to be favored. But the invoice is racing even more - around 3,600 euros per year on average. Only the rest is more affordable, around 2800 euros on average. As for fuel oil, It is now forbidden to install new boilers. And for those who still have it, the best advice would be to get rid of it , given its annual cost (see above) . Ditto for electric convectors called "toaster".
