gas heating for aparment

Hi
In other countries heating for apartment / house can be done with a gas boiler
https://www.alamy.de/fotos-bilder/gas-boiler.html

This has pipes to connect the radiators in each room or the underfloor heating pipes.
Also can do warm water

It is an economical alternative and it costs normally not more than 1000-2000 EUR.

Have you seen anything like this in Switzerland? I have not seen so far.

You would need a gas hookup, which is rare in Switzerland, though I have seen one or two here.

I have exactly this in my house. It was installed when the houses were built. Since then I replaced the boiler and tanks as a) the original was good for an apartment block of 8 apartments and b) it failed the emissions test when we moved in. Cost about 16K, if I remember correctly. (Tax deductable).

Not endorsing this company, just to show the system exists: gasheizung.

https://www.viessmann.ch/de/wohngeba...ng/kaufen.html

There's also plenty of biogas, so it may even possible to warm the house with cow manure by-prodcuts Also a quick overview of where's possible to have access to the gas distribution network, spoiler: NOT on Ticino https://www.energieheld.ch/heizung/gasheizung
