The public utility Strömstadsbyggen has chosen their path for heating their buildings. Heat pumps from Thermia are the key.
"Heat pump technology is absolutely the right strategy for us, from both an environmental and economic point of view," says Sven-Erik Adolfsson, MD of Strömstadsbyggen.
At present Strömstadsbyggen has around 240 heat pumps in operation All new builds have heat pumps installed and there is a program to replace electrical and oil fired boilers with heat pump technology in older buildings.
"Thanks to heat pump technology we have one of the lowest heating costs per square meter in Sweden. We know that many people are watching developments with a keen interest and I would be glad to see more people following us", says Sven-Erik Adolfsson.
Strömstadsbyggen means that heat pumps are unbeatable from an environmental; point of view. When in operation they require minimal supervision and have a low impact on the environment. In addition no fuel deliveries are required, which is an environmental benefit in itself.
"It is a combination of the efficient and reliable technology and the good collaboration with Thermia's dealers Strömstad Värme & Sanitet that has led us to invest so heavily in heat pumps", says Sven-Erik Adolfsson
