From oil to renewables -municipal advice

Emissions from heating homes make up a significant part of Finland’s total emissions, and one of the most climate-damaging ways to heat a home is to do it with oil. In addition, it is expensive and many are surprised at how much money is saved by switching to oil heating as a renewable option. We know how to tell it, as well as many other good reasons to switch from oil to renewables.

What?

Impartial and fact-based advice for owners of oil-heated detached houses. The goal is cheaper and more environmentally friendly heating, without compromising on living comfort.

Why?

To save money for small house owners, meet the municipality’s climate goals, and support the local business.
