More efficient heating could help homeowners achieve massive savings on energy bills
Although home owners across the UK could significantly lower their bills by taking up more energy efficient heating systems and controls, as well as cheaper forms of heating, not enough is being done to encourage the adoption of such technologies, a new research report has suggested.
The new Renewable Heat Report from renewable heating experts Innasol and analyst group Frost & Sullivan released today shows that many of the people who participated in the survey are poorly informed and are even suspicious of the costs involved when deciding to switch to a more efficient heating control system or a renewable heating solution.
Figures from the paper suggest that heating is the largest part (78%) of UK consumer energy bills, while our homes are the least energy inefficient in modern Europe.
The report also revealed that the main reason UK residents are missing out on the benefits of energy efficiency measures and renewable heating systems is due to a lack of awareness of the technologies available, a lack of understanding of their benefits and confusion about various government incentives.
Building Energy Management Systems are capable of delivering extensive monitoring and control options, compared to basic controls. They typically employ data from a variety of sources (boiler flow and return sensors, internal and external temperature sensors, occupancy sensors, humidity sensors, etc.), and enable the perfect optimization of a building’s boiler-based central heating system.
HeatingSave is also approved to work and save fuel within the Energy Technology List, which is managed by the Carbon Trust on behalf of the Government. It is also approved by the Department of Energy & Climate Change and the Energy Savings Trust and was specified by the Building Research Establishment for the energy efficient homes retro-fit program, called The Greenhouse Project.
Last, but certainly not least, it’s important to mention that HeatingSave is a component part of the Government’s Green Deal program.
