Most firms shy away from energy efficiency technologies due to “high upfront costs”
The majority of businesses who opt not to install energy efficiency technologies do so because of what they perceive as “high upfront costs” and savings that are only visible on the long-term, a recent report has been able to reveal.
The paper by financial services firm Standard & Poor’s suggests that the payback period for energy efficiency projects “varies greatly based on the client’s energy consumption and the technologies involved”.
It adds: “Energy-saving lighting with movement sensors can have a payback period of less than three years, whereas heating, ventilating and air conditioning equipment and insulation can have a payback period of 10 years or more.”
HeatingSave – the most cost-effective solution to bolster your energy efficiency
Replacing your central heating clock with a HeatingSave energy and boiler management controller is the quickest way of beating those tariff rises and saving on energy costs, often paying for itself in less than a year but almost always in less than 3 years.
HeatingSave can cut your energy usage by 20% to 30% with its energy management control, as its internal microprocessor constantly calculates and improves the efficiency and savings of your central heating system.
UsingHeatingSave, simply choose the room temperature and the hot water you want, and when, and HeatingSave does the rest. It works with all central heating systems – oil, gas or coal – and links up with a PC to produce reports and graphs to fashion a powerful and complete energy management system.
The system is backed by the Carbon Trust and the Energy Savings Trust.
