Heating season in Lithuania lasts around 200 days, therefore, it is especially important to select the right heating method

The easiest, most comfortable and environment friendly accommodation heating solution is heat pump. Unfortunately, it is not the cheapest.

Even though heating using solid fuel (firewood) is still the cheapest, Lithuanians are now increasingly replacing old, inefficient solid fuel systems with convenient and cleaner gas systems. Research2 indicates that heating using natural gas is almost as cost-efficient as heating using solid fuel.

Installing modern gas boilers is much easier than installing solid fuel boilers, they take up a lot less space. Also, gas boilers can be controlled using smart devices, remotely.

In a long-term perspective, this option provides significantly more comfort for a similar price and is much more environment-friendly.
