Winter is time for holidays, and those who are lucky enough to have a house in the mountains can’t wait to enjoy it, at least a few days.
However, as usual, we are faced with the issue of how to manage the heating system of a holiday home, especially if it is located in places where temperatures drop and if no one uses it for the majority of the year.
The heating system in a holiday home: why managing it correctly is important
Holiday homes, and mountain venues in particular, are notoriously colder.
So we need to choose a good heating system, and also adopt certain measures to prevent energy dispersion, on one side, which can generate wasteful consumption, and more critical system efficiency issues, on the other side.
Why is managing your holiday home’s heating system important?
In certain places, where temperatures drop often below zero, the risk that the system pipes freeze is a common occurrence.
When this happens, in order to solve the issue, it may be necessary to contact a specialized technician, with consequent additional costs which are often high.
In addition, if there has been a lot of ice, there is the risk of pipe issues (which can bursts due to the increased iced water volume), and consequently the entire system.
Indeed, this scenario would require even longer times to solve the entire situation, and even higher costs.
And don’t forget that, apart from the costs, even your comfort would be severely compromised.
Getting to your holiday home and not being able to immediately enjoy your heating system, may seriously ruin your sought-after holidays.
Sure, you could keep the heating running at low temperature the entire time, or use anti-freeze liquids to protect it.
In this case too, costs would be high.
The boiler would continue to work to generate heat in a house that is not inhabited for the majority of the year, using up energy.
So it would basically be a pointless expenditure.
Or you could thermally insulate the building, with a top layer, an efficient insulation cover, and the use of special insulating materials.
This too would be costly, though, especially if you use high-quality materials.
Lastly, don't forget that, even if your holiday home heating system worked correctly, heating up a very cold room would require a lot of energy.
