How to save on heating when smaller energy companies put up prices
HeatingSave’s intelligent heating controller is the answer to fuel bills going up. The price comparison site confused.com said that the smaller energy companies, because they do not benefit from the bigger economies of scale, tend to be the first to pass on reduced prices in a falling market, and of course are the first to raise them as wholesale prices go up.
The advice from confused.com is to keep prices down as much as possible by looking at online deals, or paying by direct debit. Consumers may act too late if they try to shop around for a better tariff because, as mentioned above, the bigger companies will soon follow in putting up prices.
An easier option is the HeatingSave central heating control system, which delivers savings of up to quarter – you will not find that on an online tariff. This uses the principle of “install and forget”, as its controller makes heat-saving calculations based on the outside temperature, the inside temperature and the heat-loss algorithm that it creates for each building or heating zone. You can track how much your heating is costing on the included PC software. The home system costs only £428 plus VAT when purchased on-line at www.heatingsave.co.uk, and can pay for itself in just 12 months.
The system is supported by the Department for Environment Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA); and the Energy Saving Trust, which for more than fifteen years has provided free, impartial advice, information and tools to people across the UK looking to save and generate energy.
