Payback period of the lion®-Powerblock
The lion®-Powerblock corresponds to a cutting-edge, effective heating system with condensing boiler technology saving additionally a large portion of the electricity purchase from the public network. Due to its efficient continuous operation gas consumption increases, if any, compared to a modern condensing boiler only slightly. The payback period depends on the electricity price and saved amount of electricity. In case of raising prices payoff period shortens accordingly. (Simplified representation: Annual increment in electricity prices and thus increasing savings are equated with debit interest of the total investment)
