Induction stove

If we decide to use renewable sources to obtain electricity for our household or business we are usually guided by the two main advantages of this type of solution - ecology and economy. Or maybe we could use the still produced surplus energy from the photovoltaic installation and completely offset the emissions from our heating system?

An induction stove is just such a solution.

How does the induction stove work?

An induction furnace is nothing more than an electric furnace that uses the phenomenon of magnetic induction. The boiler's charge is heated by the flow of so-called eddy currents through it, which are generated in a conductive substance located in an alternating magnetic field. Importantly, the heated conductor is not in direct contact with the furnace elements connected to the power source.

By construction, a distinction is made between core and non-core induction boilers. Core furnaces are powered by low-frequency alternating current, and thus it is this technology that is used in home heating systems.

Advantages of the solution

infrared heating system
  • wide application - stoves can be used to heat not only single-family homes, but also residential and commercial premises, factories or water reservoirs;
  • An ecological solution - heating the house with electricity significantly reduces emissions of pollutants, primarily carbon dioxide, into the atmosphere;
  • Easy installation, servicing and long life - the stove can be connected to central heating, takes up relatively little space and emits nuisance noise. It does not require the installation of a chimney or ventilation system. The boiler does not contain a heater, which in standard heating devices causes hardening of water and leads to frequent failures. The average service life of an induction furnace is 30 years;
  • Safety - the stove is electrically controlled, there is no risk of explosion;
  • compatibility - most of the furnaces on the market today can be combined with photovoltaics, heat pumps or solar systems. Such a combination will allow us to minimize the cost of heating the building to a minimum.

Keep in mind, however, that an induction stove will work most efficiently if you take care of the proper thermal insulation of the building first. Heat loss can be minimized if only by replacing leaky windows, insulating the ceiling and walls. Partial reimbursement of the cost of such a project can be obtained under the thermal modernization tax credit and the Clean Air program, or in the case of entrepreneurs, the Energy Plus program.
