Ariston Thermo exceeded the threshold of 1 mln. thermal power plants sold in Romania

3 June 2021

Ariston Thermo Romania registered in 2020 an increase by 15% of the number of thermal power plants sold, above the growth level of the domestic market, which was between 5-10%. Thus, Ariston Thermo Romania has exceeded the threshold of 1 million units sold in Romania since the beginning of its activity here, over 20 years ago.

“Ariston Thermo has consolidated its leading position in 2020, recording a record growth. We have benefited from factors such as the positive dynamics of the construction market, but also from the greater concern of consumers for home design, a natural trend during the pandemic in the context of traffic restrictions and the implementation by many employers of home work programs,” said Cătălin Drăguleanu, Country manager Ariston Thermo Romania.

Ariston Thermo sells in Romania condensing wall-mounted thermal power plants with a capacity of 24-35 kW. In general, customers opt for the 24kW boiler, suitable for apartments. In the last year, however, the tendency of people to migrate to small rural or urban areas, under the impact of the pandemic, has generated an increase in demand for power plants with a capacity of 35kW, more suitable for large homes.

Condensation models have a total efficiency, by recovering heat from the flue gases, of up to 108%, compared to 94% for a conventional model. In addition, they save up to 35% on gas consumption compared to an old conventional plant, which is important given that, according to statistics, utility costs have risen steadily in recent years.

In the last quarter of 2020, a household spent on average almost 500 lei on housing, water, electricity or gas, more than 15% compared to the same period in 2019, according to the National Institute of Statistics.

At the same time, ANRE data show that approximately 460,000 homes were disconnected from the central heating system in Romania in the period 2010-2019, of which almost 30,000 in 2019 (the last for which ANRE provided public data), down from 2018, when the number of disconnections exceeded 42,000.
