Heat pumps are most popular solution for hot water production
In a comparison of different technologies for efficient hot water production with low energy costs, the heat pump is currently the most popular solution. The Federal Association of Heat Pumps has come to this conclusion, based on the fact that most applications for funding are received for heat pump technology. But there are also obstacles in the development of this technology.
More and more washing systems are trying to reduce the costs of hot water production and are relying on heat pump technology. The Federal Association of Heat Pumps is observing a large influx of this technology, because most funding applications relate to the installation of a heat pump system, followed by biomass and solar thermal energy.
The new German government continues to focus on the expansion of renewable and alternative energies. At a professional forum of the association, political representatives of the governing coalition confirmed during a panel discussion that “both the expansion of renewable energies and the issue of electricity prices and the renovation of property will be central issues of the new government.”
Widely used in the car wash industry
One of the biggest problems with heat pumps is their dependence on electricity. Many car wash operators are already opting for a combination of photovoltaic systems or solar thermal systems in conjunction with a heat pump. State subsidies for the use of heat pumps are also beneficial. The requirements of the subsidy are easy to meet for car washes in daily operation.
