North-South divide also visible in terms of heating habits

The heating habits vary largely across the UK, especially on the North-South axis, with southerners more prone to switching on the heating early, a recent news report on the matter was able to reveal.

A poll of 1,000 people by price comparison service Make it Cheaper found that the attitude towards heating varies a lot, with northerners being the most reluctant to switch on the heating early.

The Scots appear much more tolerant of colder conditions, waiting until the outside temperature falls to a balmy 10.8°C before firing up their radiators, while Londoners do the same when the temperatures reaches 12.6°C.

Residents of South Wales, on the other hand, are much less resilient to cold weather, switching on the heating as soon as the external temperatures reach 13.5°C.

Furthermore, residents in the south tend to heat their homes to a higher temperature. While northerners typically maintain an average temperature of around 19 degrees Celsius around the house, those in the south push it up a notch, to an average of 21.5°C.

The HeatingSave Building Energy Management System helps customers save more than 30% on their bills by optimizing any heating system’s overall functionality. This is done by taking into account a variety of factors, such as internal and external temperatures, occupancy, time of the year, the particular characteristics of installed boilers, etc.

All of the data is used in order to determine the best heating patterns for the various heating zones within any building, using our proprietary heat-loss algorithm.

The end result is that users still get a very good level of comfort, while in the same time saving energy and money in the process.
