CO2 Emissions

Carbon dioxide is created whenever fuels are converted into heat energy. CO2 emissions are lower with electrically powered hot water supply systems than systems utilising fuels. Solar thermal collectors again achieve better ratings as they make use of solar energy, which produces no carbon dioxide whatsoever.
