Did you know that energy efficient heating technologies can help to tackle climate targets by reducing CO₂ emissions? Most of the currently installed stock of heating appliances in European countries are old and inefficient.

Replacing them with new, more energy efficient and/or renewable heating solutions, will help to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions and, thus, the environmental impact.

In addition to this general co-benefit, we can also achieve energy and money savings! Maybe you already knew about that?

“The heat you know” will test your knowledge, and each question will teach you more about efficient heating.

What can I learn?

Interesting information about efficient heating, from general definitions to technical information.

Here are some keywords:

  • Energy efficiency
  • Renewable energy
  • Fossil fuels
  • Energy labels
  • Rebound effect
  • Smart heating and energy saving behaviours
  • Efficient heating systems
  • Energy savings
  • Cost savings
  • CO₂ emissions

Are you ready for The heat you know?

Quiz “the heat you know” is produced as part of the European HARP project.

About HARP project

HARP (Heating Appliances Retrofit Planning) project gathers 18 partners from 5 European countries. The main idea of the project is to motivate consumers to plan the replacement of their often old and inefficient heating appliances, with more efficient alternatives.

Within the HARP project, the HARP online tool developed will help you to check the energy efficiency of your current heating system and find a tailored solution based on the most efficient alternatives available on the market, depending on your country.

You will also get a list of the main advantages associated with a more efficient heating system such as energy and costs savings and reduction of CO2 emissions.
