For several months now, the energy crisis has caused gas and electricity prices to explode. The question arises more and more of finding solutions to heat efficiently without breaking the bank. It is moreover the heart of a co-ideation campaign launched on the EDF Pulse & You platform. And some ideas are worth discovering.
There are many innovations in the heating market. They are more or less known, more or less promising, more or less accessible. And this is the subject that is currently being debated on the EDF Pulse & You co-ideation platform. A subject that is all the more topical as many of us are looking for efficient and affordable heating solutions in these times of energy crisis.
A truly innovative heater, what do you think it would be?
There are already some that can be deployed fairly quickly. For those who heat themselves with electricity, for example. Because it is known, in the new as in the old, heating with electricity is expensive. Reason enough to choose efficient and energy-efficient radiators. In aluminiumaluminiumthe radiator at inertiainertia fluid AtollAtoll of Acova ensures a rapid rise in temperature and delivers a heatheat soft and homogeneous. Fitted with a control unit, it allows the heating periods to be programmed according to three daily programs predefined by the manufacturer and another customizable one. As an option, for intelligent heating management, this radiator can be connected from its pilot wire to a connected programmer. Available in different sizes, this radiator has a very small thickness (10.5 cm). Finally, it has a raised on/off button, practical for visually impaired users. Available in large DIY stores (GSB) or specialized sites.

On the consumption side, depending on the maximum power, count 1.6 kg/h of pellets for 6 kW and 2.4 kg/h for 9 kW. However, this equipment has a nice reserve of pellets between 16.5 and 17kgkg. in full saisonsaison of heating, it ensures nearly three days of heating.
