In spring 2023, the 25-year-old oil heating system was removed and replaced with a new environmentally friendly ETA pellet heating system. The new heating system has an output of 105 kW and up to 11 tonnes of pellets can be stored in the storage tank.

We would like to thank the company FREY Haustechnik GmbH & Co. KG from Saalburg-Ebersdorf for the installation of the ETA pellet heating system.
