Have you been looking for release from “gas dependence”? There is a solution!
Despite the fact that the gas energy supply at present moment is probably the most convenient variant for heating and hot water supply in private, commercial and municipal sector, the new tariffs make it not the most economically feasible. In fact, gas heating may be completely automatic, it does not load the power grid, it is relatively safe, however, at heating of a private house, shopping, production or office premise with the area from 300 m² and more, the gas heating becomes more expensive than heating with the use of solid fuel boiler.
At present moment the solid fuel boilers are one of the most economically efficient heat sources for heating systems and hot water supply. The coal, wood, pellets and other combustible biomass are rather cheap. The cost of heat kilowatt, generated at combustion of solid fuel, is lower than at use of gas or electricity.

Of course, the specificity in use of solid fuel heating system differs from operation of gas or electric boiler. First of all, the people fear the necessity constantly to load the fuel to the boiler, as well as difficulties with the use of solid fuel boilers to provide with hot water supply during summer period.
In fact such problems are either not urgent, or easily solvable!
High level of comfort
The well-known problem with boilers that use the solid fuel – the necessity in constant maintenance – is today coming to the background. The modern solid fuel boilers are the high technology equipment that can operate in fully-automatic mode. You do not need regularly to put the wood or coal to the furnace anymore – the duration of stand-alone operation at modern pellet boiler or boiler that uses “eco-coal” (pea coal) is up to some days!
Heating with the most available kind of fuel – wood and wood wastes – can also be comfortable. The wood boilers of long combustion can work at one fuel filling during up to 35 hours!
The use of solid fuel boiler for provision with hot water supply during warm season is not as efficient as in winter. However there is the solution: the use of solid fuel heating boiler together with solar system, which will take the provision with hot water supply upon itself.
The hybrid energy system “solid fuel boiler + solar system” provides with a great number of undisputable advantages in comparison with gas heating system or purely solid fuel heating.
The use of solar system even at not high cost of solid fuel will provide with additional saving, substituting from 30 to 70% from the need in heating in winter, spring and autumn, and providing the needs in hot water supply during warm season by 100%.
Your savings in comparison with gas or electric heat supply will be much more!
Solution for problem of poor efficiency during summer period
The solid fuel boiler operates at 10% from its capacity in summer in order to provide only the need in hot water supply, hereby its efficiency is reduced by 40% – the boiler efficiency is decreased up to 38-45%! If heating of one cubic meter of hot water by solid fuel boiler costs about UAH 6.8 in winter, in summer the price for one cubic meter of water will grow to UAH 10.9.
This is the significant disadvantage of solid fuel boilers in comparison with gas or electric boilers. However, there is a way out.
When solar system is used, in summer the price for heating of one cubic meter of hot water is zero as the solar heat is free of charge!
Neither gas, nor electricity can offer this!
Boiler storage in summer
In summer the use of solar thermal system to heat hot water allows completely refusing from use of solid fuel boiler. It enables reducing the expenses for maintenance of boiler equipment during that period, as well as significantly – up to 45% – increasing the total service life of boiler.
The solar system operates fully automatically, so, you can just forget about heating equipment for the whole summer!
Low expenses for implementation
The solid fuel heating system costs not expensive at all. And the implementation of solar collector into solid fuel heating system is very cheap!
The heating system, based on solid fuel boiler, already includes a larger part of equipment, necessary for operation of solar thermal system. Thus, the expenses for integration will be only 30-35% from the cost of solar system “from scratch”
Refuse from gas without any extra expenses!
The scheme of hybrid energy system “solid fuel boiler + solar system” is simple and very efficient. The heat, generated by solar collector, may be used not only to heat water for hot water supply but to keep heating.
Thus, the solar heat during sunny autumn and winter days will not warm only hot water supply but the heating system. And the available, so powerful heat source as a solid fuel boiler will allow compensating the lack in heat generation by solar collectors during the period of minimum insolation.
Hybrids “solid fuel boiler + solar system” – an optimal variant for saving and autonomy!
The solar systems may be integrated practically into any existing heating system with pellet, wood or coal boiler regardless of complexity level.
The engineers from Atmosfera are ready to calculate the optimal scheme for integration of solar thermal system into heating system with solid fuel boiler pursuant to the heated area, consumption of hot water supply, capacity of existing boiler and existing configuration of system.
Besides, if you only plan to implement solid fuel heating in your house, at municipal, commercial or industrial facility, or if you like to switch over from gas to biofuel or coal – the specialists of Atmosfera are ready to help you to calculate and to design the new system, as well as to select the necessary equipment.
