Boilers and Equipment

IMG_0587There is a wide variety of biomass boilers and heating systems on the Moldovan market, with the capacity to heat up from 30 sq.m. to industrial areas. The boilers are produced or assembled in Moldova using the most state-of-art technologies from countries like Germany, Italy, Poland, Czech Republic or Greece.

When choosing a heating system pay attention to price and efficiency – the two parameters of primary importance for the budget of the user of pellets and briquettes.

The variety of boilers is wide and you can choose a boiler with pellets, briquettes or a mixed one. The boiler efficiency varies depending on the fuel. It reaches 75% with briquettes and 85% with pellets. In general, the more efficient boilers have much lower operation costs, many of them offering additional options, such as setting the temperature in your home remotely using the PC or even the cell phone.

Besides providing nearly the same level of comfort like the gas heating solutions at an initial lower cost, the biomass heating solutions have other benefits as well. To connect to the heating system households do not need their neighbors’ approval (connecting to the gas network requires a design to be developed and signed by the regional gas supplier, which is a costly process); it takes less time to install the boiler, because there is no need for the compulsory coordination and permits that are required to connect to a gas boiler. Finally, a biomass heating system can be connected to the dwelling’s heating infrastructure – pipes and radiators, or can directly warm the air around it without requiring any additional investments in infrastructure.

The Energy and Biomass Project in Moldova subsidized the procurement of biomass boilers by households and micro enterprises. The subsidy amount was 1300 Euros for the procurement and installation of a boiler, either with pellets or briquettes, with 85% efficiency, at least 36 hours of battery life and automated control panel and 700 Euros for the less efficient boilers fired with briquettes, with at least 75% efficiency, at least 6 hours of battery life and automated control panel. More than 750 families and micro enterprises applied to the Subsidy Program and installed efficient boilers, part of their investments having been reimbursed by the European Union.
