Boiler energy management system reduces oil usage by a quarter
There is currently zero confidence in BP following the fiasco when the Deepwater Horizon oil rig sank on the 20th of April after an explosion, killing 11 workers. Deepwater Horizon has become the United States’ largest oil spill in history – an estimated equivalent of 528,000 to 836,000 barrels spilled. As a result, the Pensacola soft white sand beaches, which hundreds of thousands of tourists visit every year to surf, swim and sunbathe, are inundated with soft globules of tar. The previous largest US spill was the Exxon Valdez in Alaska in 1989 when around 260,000 barrels were lost.
Interviewed on US television, BP managing director Robert Dudley vowed the company would learn from its failed attempts to clear up the mess and continue trying.
Consumers worried about this disaster causing oil and fuel shortages (and thus more inevitable high prices) can rest easy because there is a way to cut your domestic fuel usage by a quarter. A cheap – it can pay for itself in as little as a year – and easy to install Building Energy Management System (BEMS) reduces the amount of fossil fuel energy burned in the home.
HeatingSave’s state-of-the-art microprocessor controller is connected to a number of temperature sensors measuring the external outside temperature, room, hot water tank and heating flow and return temperatures. Among its fuel and money-saving measures, it can switch on the boiler later and switch it off earlier on warm days than cold days.
