FOR many people that move to Spain from Northern Europe one of the most surprising aspects of life here is the need for central heating during the winter months. With many not expecting temperatures to drop as they do, a hot topic is often “how can I keep myself warm?”
Traditionally central heating options were mainly limited to gas or oil-fired boilers. Now Solar in Spain is offering a very attractive renewable energy alternative that is growing in popularity year by year; the wood pellet stove or boiler.
Wood pellet heating is wood chippings from a timber mill that are compressed into a pellet form and used as a source of heating. The pellets replace the need for oil or gas at your property.
The heating can be provided either by a stove, which looks very much like a conventional wood burner where you have a glass front and can see the flame, or a pellet boiler that can replace a conventional gas or oil boiler.
A conventional central heating system whether it is operated with radiators or with under floor heating can also be changed to the pellet option.
There are many advantages of wood pellet over oil or gas; running costs are reduced by up to 60 per cent; there is no need to store hazardous fuels at your property such as gas bottles and govern-ment grants of 50 per cent are available for some stoves and boilers.
They are also easy to use and can be operated by remote control and warm air from a stove can be directed into other parts of your property.
Wood pellet heating really is the modern solution to our heating needs and Solar in Spain offer a large range of stylish stoves and boilers for your home. Grants are available for solar energy hot water, electricity and wood pellet systems that are certificated by the Spanish government and installed by accredited installers.
Solar in Spain is one of the few accredited com-panies that have been working for many years with the government’s energy department to obtain generous grants for their clients.
Solar in Spain has been established for 15 years and has thousands of satisfied customers who are enjoying the benefits of very low household bills as a result of installing a renewable energy system in their property.
