We are reaching the end of August, and although there is still time, autumn is fast approaching and with it the changes in temperature and also the opportunity to equip our house for the cold and rainy months that are approaching
It is time to go from air conditioning to heating and in this sense, one of the possibilities that we find to heat the home is to use a heat pump. For this reason, this model can be interesting thanks to a feature that makes this heat pump an intelligent model and thus be able to save on the electricity bill while helping the environment.
smart and green
We have already discussed the price of energy in different locations and, for example, every week we see what the price of electricity is to know what we are facing. And that’s what this heat pump does. Like other household appliances, study the price of electricity to find the moment when it is cheapest and also clean to function and heat the house.
The heat pump comes from the Austrian manufacturer, Ökofen and receives the name of greenfox. The striking thing about this model and what makes it special is that it is an intelligent heat pump.
To function and help save energy, it performs on the one hand a study of the price of electricity to determine when it is cheaper. And not only that, but based on meteorological and CO2 data, as well as photovoltaic production or energy prices, it can establish when the origin of the energy consumed is cleaner.
The result is make heating the house more economical and at the same time have a lower impact on the footprint we leave on the environment.
Available in white, gray and anthracite colors to adapt to the design of each house, The operation of this model is based on intelligent control thanks to the system Green Mode or Green Mode.
Is about an intelligent regulation system that based on the price of electricity, its origin and CO2 data in real time, allows fully automatic optimization of the heat pump.
To achieve this, it has access to a database that imports country-specific live electricity forecasts. Data indicating the origin of the electricity and whether it is more or less ecological. If, for example, it determines that electricity from coal-fired power plants is used, the heat pump reacts and changes its heating times to a time when the source of the electricity is greener and thus use electricity with low CO2 emissions.
Having said that, it will be the user who has the last wordsince at any time you can make the heat pump run more economically, even if the energy is “less green”.
In addition, in the case of users who have self-consumption systems, this heat pump allows to take advantage of these photovoltaic systems so that it allows you to continue heating the house in a truly ecological way.
This system stands out because it can be easily upgraded to a hybrid pellet system, at the time of purchase or later. In addition, it uses the refrigerant gas R290more respectful with the environment.
Price and availability
Greenfox heat pump will go on sale for purchase as of September 1, 2023.
