AVERAGE APARTMENT HEATING COSTS – 2013/2014 HEATING SEASON

BELGRADE, Wednesday, September 4, 2013.

The highest heating costs during the 2013/2014 heating season will be borne by households using heating oil, propane butane gas and electricity directly in heating appliances and boilers for floor heating (according to the prices of fuels in early September 2013.). They need to earmark RSD 174,000 for the procurement of heating oil, RSD 131,000 for propane butane gas and RSD 106,000 for electricity. Natural gas costs are twice or three times lower and they amount to RSD 54,000. Almost the same level of costs will be borne by those households using pellets for heating purposes, if these are burned in furnaces constructed for this fuel, as well as by citizens using firewood at RSD 5,500/m3 price in low-efficiency furnaces.

AERSThe lowest heating costs will covered by households using wood in those areas of Serbia where it is cheaper (for example, RSD 4,000/m3) and, in particular, if they use more modern furnaces with the efficiency of around 70%. In that case, it takes RSD 31,000 to finance fuel purchase for the season. These furnaces secure affordable heating in comparison to other options even at the firewood prices such as those in Belgrade and in Vojvodina.

The households using electric thermal storage heaters will also bear lower hosts which amount to RSD 39,000 in case they exclusively use cheaper electricity at night time. Every time one recharges the heater in day time and thereby, uses more expensive electricity, one considerably increases the costs. For example, the recharge of two heaters of 3 kW for two hours only during day time will increase the heating costs by around 45%, i.e. up to RSD 57,000.

Households using coal will earmark from RSD 43,000 to 46,000 depending on the coal type, transport costs included. In case they have furnaces with the efficiency exceeding 55%, the costs will be lower accordingly.

In general, investments in the increase in energy efficiency of buildings and in more efficient furnaces lower the costs and are certainly cost-effective.

Heating an average apartment requires around 9,000 kWh of energy during the season. The table indicates annual costs for the purchase of energy from different sources, depending on the furnace efficiency and prices. These costs do not include investments and maintenance costs. Electricity prices are given per public supply tariff rates. Electricity losses during the use of electric thermal storage heaters were taken into account.
