The field of heating technology has witnessed substantial development over time. Just a few short years ago, Germany was home to a great many coal furnaces that provided people with heat in the winter months. Today, in contrast, heat pumps have risen to become one of the most sophisticated forms of technology for heating and hot water generation.
THE KfW DEVELOPMENT BANK
The state shares this view, offering market incentives for the procurement of efficient heat pumps by means of various funding programmes and low-interest loans including repayment subsidies. The loans are granted by KfW, which is the largest national development bank in the world. It provides funding within a range of programmes as part of a public contract, promoting aspects such as energy-efficient construction and renovation. In this way, it offers a variety of possibilities for financing the installation of a heat pump through low interest loans.
When it comes to the market incentive programme run by BAFA, the heat pump must be responsible for room heat and drinking water heating in order for funding to be granted. However, there are two situations that are exempt from this rule:
The scope of this second situation covers systems such as service water heat pumps and solar thermal systems. Electrical flow heaters can also be recognised as an option for meeting the obligation to ensure renewable drinking water heating.
For this purpose, one of the following conditions must be met:
Ecodan systems are especially suitable for modernisation. There has never been a better time to bring the energy revolution into your home, with the efficiency of Ecodan and the current funding options providing ideal conditions for your customers!
