Austrian consumers unanimous about the benefits of modernising their boilers

According to a survey conducted for Eurofuel’s Austrian member IWO Austria, 87% of the consumers who modernised their oil heating appliance over the past three years considered this decision “very good”, 11% considered it “good”. IWO Austria has been very active to encourage oil heating customers to modernise their boilers. € 15 million is mobilised on a yearly basis by industry organisations to subsidise modernisation works, which reduces the necessary investment by homeowners. The amount of energy saved with a new oil condensing boiler is impressive, sometimes above 60% savings in the consumed heating oil.

This brochure gives figures and details about a few “exemplary houses” which used the subsidy scheme.
