“Show Homes” could inspire more home owners to implement energy efficiency measures, research suggests
Increased Government support for energy efficient “show homes” could inspire other home owners to retrofit energy efficiency measures into their own households, a recent report by the National Energy Foundation (NEF) has been able to suggest.
The new study aims to demonstrate the benefits of Show Homes in raising awareness of energy savings through retrofit and renovation, and identifies the award-winning SuperHomes as beacons of inspiration for homeowners – these are more than 200 domestic properties that have reduced emissions by at least 60%.
Three in five visitors say it is very likely they will improve the energy efficiency of their homes following a visit to a SuperHome.
Gabby Mallett, Director of Households and Communities at the NEF, said: “If this government is serious about cutting carbon emissions and renovating our aged housing stock, as well as reducing fuel poverty, it needs to address the issue so clearly avoided by the Bonfield review and stimulate some demand.
“What better way to do that than by supporting initiatives such as Show Homes, which have been shown to work?”
HeatingSave Building Management System (BMS) – the easy-to-retrofit energy saving solution for any home
The HeatingSave Building Management System is registered on the Government Energy Technology List, which means that its energy-saving credentials are fully accredited.
Plus, as it allows home owners to cut energy bills by up to an impressive 30%+, HeatingSave is the perfect energy-saving measure to implement, given the huge long-term savings it enables.
The system is built around the idea of optimizing the energy consumption levels within any area with the help of an advanced heat-loss algorithm that creates a specific profile for any building and based on that, switches heating on later if it’s warm and off earlier if it’s cold.
It also automatically adjusts your boiler depending on how warm it is outside – save up to another 10%.
Additionally, the automatic occupancy detection allows the temperature to reduce to a background when areas are not used and quickly brought up to temperature when they are being used.
