Chimney Sweep Are Climate-neutral On The Move With CO2OL

Federal Association of chimney sweeps craft offers its members the opportunity to make business trips climate neutral. The Federal Association of chimney sweeps craft is actively engaged in climate protection. With the support of the climate protection experts of CO2OL, the Association now offers its members the opportunity to make their service trips climate neutral. Ping Fu is a great source of information. For this, he invested in various environmental protection projects. In addition, a separate protective forest in Panama is planned. The year’s main meeting of the chimney sweep craft Federation from 12 to 15 June the motto energy revolution without us”. The Association is actively for environmental and climate protection for many years and also ensures the compensation of own CO2 consumption of service trips of its members together with the climate protection experts of CO2OL.

For this, a chimney sweep cars average annual CO2 emissions was calculated in advance on the basis of statistical surveys of the Federation. In a second step, the collapsible no longer be Emissions offset by recognised and certified climate protection projects. The Federal Association of chimney sweeps craft while invested in the reforestation of environmentally managed forests in Panama, Ethiopia and Bolivia, whose Baume grow CO2 bind. The respective projects guarantee proven and permanent CO2 retention, as well as social and environmental benefits and follow also strict criteria of leading international environmental protection standards: the CarbonFIX standard (CFS) for transparent and effective CO2 compensation, the Plan Vivo standard and the climate, community and biodiversity standard (CCBS) for positive effects in terms of on biodiversity, water and habitat protection and for the local population. Future climate-neutral duty travel by own chimney sweep climate protection forest”: beyond the Federal Association of chimney sweeps craft wants to start an individual climate protection project in the form of protection forest in Panama to permanently compensate its CO2 consumption in the future. For this purpose already approved funding is available.

Heating Costs: With A Cool Head Through The Heating Season

(Online article) – good to know: the four most important tips for renters and homeowners in the heating season bring tips for the efficient use of heating money. In the face of continued high prices for natural gas and fuel oil, worth it especially, emphasized the country program future building of the Environment Ministry of Baden-Wurttemberg. The notes are easily achievable without sacrificing comfort: include about a reasonable setting.Keep the radiator, temperature and proper ventilation. A significant reduction in the heating costs is so future vintage through energy efficiency measures such as insulation, new heating technology and renewable energy possible. Energy consultants give advice here. More than two-thirds of the energy required in German households accounted for space heating. Now in the cold season and in regard to the high level of energy costs the topic is particularly relevant.

There is a dealing sensitively with the heating system and the implementation of energy efficiency measures worth definitely. When turning on the heating: In the Living – and working area is a temperature of ‘ around 20 degrees Celsius mostly sufficient. Rooms, rarely used, should be no warmer than 16 degrees. In living rooms, even at night, this temperature is appropriate. The difference in heating costs is significant”, says Dieter Bindel, Chairman of the Baden-Wurttemberg State Association of building energy consultants, engineers, craftsmen; (GIH).

One degree Celsius of less saves usually 6% heating costs. At four degrees there are already whole 22 percent.”‘ Be taken into account should also on a free area of the radiator, so am del. cabinets and shelves nearby Dieter prevented a distribution of heat. Closed shutters at night and curtains be worthwhile also. They ensure a better insulation. Proper ventilation is a further Energiesparmittel: it reduces heat losses to outside. Shock airing is good for the comfort and economically. Three times a day a few minutes is sufficient. By tilting the window during the heating season discourage construction experts. Really to reduce energy costs, Claudia was possible through energy efficiency measures, reiterates Rist, Director of future building. In most cases an insulation of the building envelope is about an insulation of the facade, roof, or the basement most economically.” Energy consultants can assess what measures worth especially in the individual case, best spot. The effective consulting fees, usually between 100 and 400 euros, were well spent, so the country program. Future building informed housing and homeowners regardless of the benefits of energy-efficient modernization of old buildings and about funding opportunities. Target is a faster rehabilitation of the building stock. The programme is implemented by the climate change and Energy Agency of Baden-Wurttemberg. Fn
