Clever savings with green gas

While green electricity is part of everyday life in many households, eco-gas is still a niche existence as a sustainable energy supply. Not only the environment but also the wallet can be conserved with environmentally friendly biogas and climate tariffs. What is eco-gas? With a view to a sustainable gas supply, consumers have the choice between two variants.

Save in the long term thanks to solar energy - with solar thermal energy

Save in the long term thanks to solar energy - with solar thermal energy

Solar thermal energy is profitable and environmentally friendly. The purchase is subsidized by the state, the operating and maintenance costs are low. The energy costs increase from year to year. Who does not think about saving opportunities in-house? Two important costs are heating and hot water. With the solar thermal can save a lot of money here.

The Three-Liter House - Building with the Environment at a Glance

The energy age has spawned some terms that say little to the layman at first. What is, for example, a three-liter house? The Energy-Saving Ordinance Since 2002, the Energy-Saving Ordinance, or EnEv, has set the energy standards that a properly planned building must meet in terms of energy consumption.

Improving the indoor climate

Improving the indoor climate

Bad indoor climate affects well-being. However, there are suitable measures that significantly improve the climate. Simple Measures - Ventilation & Temperature A regular exchange of air ensures a healthy indoor climate. This is achieved by opening the windows two to three times a day for 5 to 10 minutes.

The thermostat is ready to go - and it should be warm and cozy inside. Nevertheless, the heater does not get hot and the stall stays cold.

The best insulating materials in comparison

The best insulating materials in comparison

Modern houses need good thermal insulation. The best insulation material can best be compared in a comparison. Wood wool - use with low requirements Wood wool is used in the form of cement or magnesite-bonded lightweight building boards for wall insulation. However, due to the comparatively high thermal conductivity and the associated heat loss, the wood wool has only a minor importance in the insulation of buildings.
