Building heating controllers can help the elderly save energy and money
Building heating controllers and building management systems (BMS) can help the elderly save energy and money, and, more importantly, worry less about their energy bills.
This would be particularly important nowadays, as a recent survey of 2,000 respondents aged above 65 by comparethemarket.com suggests more than two-fifths of this group are worried cold weather will lead to higher energy costs.
As many as 11%, totalling around 1.3 million elderly people, don’t feel they can afford an increase in their energy bills, with a third planning to ration their usage as a result.
The survey found nearly a fifth of the elderly are on expensive default tariffs, equating to two million old age pensioners across the country.
HeatingSave – The most effective energy-saving system for homes
Efficient and effective Building Management Systems (BMS) 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.
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.
