HARP - Heating appliances retrofit planning, 2019

The main idea behind the project is to motivate individuals to plan the replacement of their often old and inefficient heating appliances, with more efficient alternatives. Among the 126 million boilers installed in the EU, a staggering 60% are inefficient (performing as a C or lower energy class) but individuals are rarely aware of the inefficiency of their heating systems and associated costs.

Through an application the HARP project will enable individuals to get an indication of the labelling classification of their heating system. The application will also provide an estimation of the costs associated with their heating system, related to, for instance, energy consumption or maintenance. The application will also give an overview of the most efficient alternatives available on the market, along with a list of their benefits, such as energy and costs savings, reduction of CO2 emissions, improvement of indoor air quality or noise reduction. Finally, HARPa will list the incentives and financial support available at national level to replace inefficient heating appliances with a more efficient alternative.

The application will be available in two different versions, a basic one for consumers, and an advanced one dedicated to professionals who, in turn, will be coached to provide a more detailed guidance to consumers regarding the replacement solutions tailored to their needs.
