Implementing energy efficiency measures can help in the fight against climate change
Reducing the levels of energy consumption within one’s home or business can have a positive effect not only by reducing their bills, but also by helping in the fight against climate change, experts believe.
Speaking for Yale Climate Connections, a multimedia service providing daily broadcast radio programming and original web-based reporting, commentary, and analysis on the issue of climate change, Ralph Cavanagh of the United States Natural Resources Defense Council, comented: “When I started my work in the seventies, everyone assumed that in order for economic growth to occur, energy use had to grow just as fast or faster. And on that logic, a healthy and growing economy meant an inexhaustible appetite for giant new polluting power plants. Coal and nuclear were the typical orders of that time.
“What’s happened since is an energy efficiency revolution that has completely broken the linkage between energy use and economic health. Since the mid-nineteen-seventies, the U.S. economy has more than tripled in size, but total energy use is up less than thirty percent.”
“Energy efficiency improvements allow that clean energy to go further,” he added.
HeatingSave – the most cost-effective solution for energy efficiency improvements
Replacing your central heating clock with a HeatingSave energy and boiler management controller is the quickest way of beating those tariff rises and saving on energy costs, often paying for itself in less than a year but almost always in less than 3 years.
HeatingSave can cut your energy usage by 20% to 30% with its energy management control, as its internal microprocessor constantly calculates and improves the efficiency and savings of your central heating system.
Using HeatingSave, simply choose the room temperature and the hot water you want, and when, and HeatingSave does the rest. It works with all central heating systems – oil, gas or coal – and links up with a PC to produce reports and graphs to fashion a powerful and complete energy management system.
The system is backed by the Carbon Trust and the Energy Savings Trust.
