Electric / Re: Enel - compensation for power outage
« Last post by Orbito on Today at 01:28:28 AM »
I got a letter a few months ago which said go to the post office with the usual documentation, and I got Ä100 back. Didn't request it and couldn't believe how simple it was.

But don't get me started on pet passports....

Thank you very much OliveOyl, it sounds wonderful. They are not common in the UK, but there are a number around that burn just about anything and with logs some have a feeder type hopper, but not too sure how well this worksÖ Like Iíve said, it sounds the ideal way to go for anyone looking to instal a new system.

It has an electronic selector - when you use wood, the hopper screw doesn't feed into the main boiler. It's a lot easier to use pellets/nocciolino cos you just fill the hopper up and let it do its own things once you've adjusted the flow rate. With wood, you have to open the furnace door (carefully!) and throw a lot of logs in. It's actually less controllable with wood - you just put less in and that's about as technical as it gets but of course if you have your own wood, a bit of wastage doesn't matter. Last year we heated the house all winter for nothing - win, win 😊 We'd never come across anything like this but it makes perfect sense here as long as you have the space for it.

I think Some have, some are still waiting. Fir example, the compensation for my rental arrived over a month ago but the compensation for my house is still not here. They have got in a muddle in my case by offering credit off future bills but as Iíve now closed the account.....

In fact, Iíve recently ditched ENEL altogether and moved to ENI, which do both gas and electric. Iíll let you know if they are any better😬

For culture vultures and anyone who just wants a night out. I have been told that films are often shown in their original language.

Has any one received this compensation as I was notified in May of the compensation amount, filled in and returned the enclosed forms but nothing has arrived in my Italian bank account!   ???

OliveOyl that also looks a brute! I just wondered how you swap between fuels. I guess it makes no difference for pellets and sansa as they will feed in the same way, but does wood have a different means of access. Also how do you stop the pellet/sansa feed when using wood?

We have the Ecosystem basement boiler with a Puffer for storing excess heat in hot water form so that our underfloor heating works whether the boiler is operating or not (once it gets up to temperature.) You can get smaller ones if you just want to use pellets - it would be the size of the unit on the left in that case. We find it's brilliant - best buy we made!

This D'alessandro site (same Company make as we have) gives an example of what a sansa boiler looks like. A quick at the CS30-100 (look more like ours) PDF indicates they have come on somewhat since our old model, but are still big brutes circa 1m high and 1.7M wide. I could not see any prices, but this site gives an idea for at least one of the types. I would guess installation costs would not e cheap here.
