Reduce fuel poverty with savings from computerised heating controller
Official figures this week reveal the number of households who are in ‘fuel poverty’ has more than doubled in the last five years because of soaring energy bills. A household is defined as being fuel poor if it has to spend 10 per cent or more of its income on paying to keep the home adequately warm. For many pensioners this is the largest bill they have to pay all year, so many are struggling to keep their homes warm. In 2003 the number of fuel poor households was two million, but it climbed to 4.5 million in 2008, according to the Department of Energy & Climate Change.
The quickest means of reigning in fuel poverty and those surging energy bills is to install a HeatingSave building energy management system. The computer system automatically makes calculations on how to save energy and money. The HeatingSave controller measures the outside and inside temperature of your building, and by using its specially created algorithm, works out the minimum time to switch on the boiler in order for the rooms to be heated. Thus instant savings of 20 to 30 per cent off your bill can be created.
