Collective eco-friendly heating

 

 

logo-lvh-projet-transparent-tourBehind La Forge is the central heating room for all the houses. When our three gas heaters were no longer functional in 2005, we have installed a wood chip heating system of 55 kw. On the south-facing roof of the building are 15 m² solar panels that heat up 750 liters of water. If the sun does not show up for a while the wood heating takes the work over. The wood for heating comes from our fir forest. Once a year, a machine comes for two or three hours, “voring” about 100 firs and spitting out the chips directly into the drying barn. From there they are taken as needed into the storage room next to the wood heater.
