HeatingSave Transforms Energy Efficiency at Hillview School for Girls
Situated in Tonbridge, Kent, Hillview School for Girls provides education to girls aged 11 to 18, including a vibrant mixed sixth form. Hillview School for Girls was first established in 1854 and has evolved into one of the leading non-selective girls’ schools in Kent. Notably, in 2022, the school achieved a significant milestone by being one of the first institutions in the country to receive the esteemed updated 'Platinum Artsmark Award' from Arts Council England.
Fostering a dynamic and inclusive environment by focusing on performing and visual arts specialties, Hillview School for Girls prioritises building self-esteem and nurturing high aspirations in their students. To influence the learning experience between the students, they promote a ‘can-do’ culture, encouraging students to be astute, ambitious, and independent.
Hillview School for Girls has been a HeatingSave customer for more than a decade. Since getting their system installed back in 2010, Ben Lacey, the Site & Facilities Manager of the school, told our reporter that “HeatingSave has brought significant savings and advantages to their building”.
“Our HeatingSave goals were to save on gas and heating bills and have more precise control over heating throughout the building,” revealed Ben. He added that the school encountered no problems during the HeatingSave installation process and that subsequently they received training on how to use the system so that they were competent with its day-to-day running. Ben himself did not receive any training for the system, but through discussions with HeatingSave's HelpDesk, he acquired significant knowledge so that he could run the system.
When asked his view of HeatingSave, Ben replied, “What I like most about HeatingSave is the ease of use of the system and the ability to control the heating from any PC on site.” He particularly emphasised the efficiency of the HeatingSave AI software system and the analytics it produces. When asked if HeatingSave made it easy for the school to collect energy consumption and environmental data, he replied, “Yes! It gives us everything that we want in a graphical and visual way that makes the data easy to understand.”
Hillview School for Girls has been a loyal customer of HeatingSave for a significant period, so we asked them about their after-sales experience. "The HelpDesk is amazing! The team has been exceptional over the years, addressing any issue that has arisen."
We also asked if Ben would recommend HeatingSave to other schools wanting to save energy and reduce costs. Ben enthusiastically affirmed, “Yes, I would!” Summing up his experience, he concluded, “HeatingSave is excellent for saving energy and money.”
