Building management systems (BMS) make homes more energy efficient – and stamp duty should reflect that, experts argue
Building managements systems (BMS) can do wonders in terms of improving a building’s overall energy efficiency – and this should be reflected in the stamp duty, experts have argued.
In fact, the industry is hoping that stamp duty will either be cut or adjusted based on energy efficiency in order to stimulate transactions, which have seen a downward trend following the addition of the 3% Stamp Duty surcharge.
These hopes are partiaylly based on a recent statement by energy minister Claire Perry, who suggested Stamp Duty levels could be cut to encourage owners to make homes more energy efficient, and thus more attractive to potential purchasers who would benefit from such a cut.
HeatingSave – the perfect Building Energy Management System to make your home more energy efficient
The HeatingSave Building Energy Management System is registered on the Government Energy Technology List, which means that users can easily obtain Green Deal funding in order to have the system installed.
Plus, since it allows home owners to cut energy bills by up to an impressive 30%+, HeatingSave is the perfect energy-saving measure to implement, given the huge long-term savings it enables.
The system is built around the idea of optimizing the energy consumption levels within any area with the help of an advanced heat-loss algorithm that creates a specific profile for any building and based on that, switches heating on later if its warm and off earlier if its cold.
It also automatically adjusts your boiler depending on how warm it is outside – save up to another 10%.
Additionally, the automatic occupancy detection allows the temperature to reduce to a background when areas are not used and quickly brought up to temperature when they are being used.
