Home Boiler Control system reduces domestic carbon footprint
Manchester United footballer Gary Neville has submitted plans for a subterranean £6m carbon-zero home. It is due to go up next to the 12-bedroom property that he and his wife have already constructed on the site of the hamlet he owns in Harwood, in the Lancashire Pennines. The defender commissioned one of the country’s leading architects to come up with the design. Despite opposition from neighbours, local council officers have recommended that it be built.
Roughly 40 per cent of CO2 emissions come from buildings, so clearly the England veteran is taking the issue of carbon emissions seriously. An ideal way to reduce your home’s carbon footprint is an energy management system from HeatingSave. The House and Home Boiler Control system comes complete with a HeatingSave controller, five temperature sensors, free ‘PC lite’ software and installation instructions. A special rate is available if you buy on-line, and the system is approved by the Carbon Trust.
The PC Windows Explorer style software enables you to have complete control over your central heating system by entering the heating patterns you require for any particular day and allowing you to see the carbon emissions (and money) savings you are making graphically on the PC screen. It will make a difference on heating bills and your environmental impact by up to 30 per cent.
