With a heat pump or with systems like the solar fireplace you will save both on heating both on expenses related to the air conditioning system. In addition, all the expenses incurred to optimize the energy efficiency of a building are entitled to tax deductions of 50-60% or can access the Thermal Account or, in the case of photovoltaic systems, the energy sales system commonly called "exchange on the spot ".
