58,000 Scottish homes had energy saving measures installed last year, DECC statistics reveal
In excess of 58,000 energy-saving measures were installed in Scottish homes as part of the Energy Company Obligation (ECO) scheme, official figures released by the UK Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) have recently revealed.
The ECO scheme requires energy suppliers to install a variety of energy saving measures in an attempt to eradicate (or at least significantly reduce) fuel poverty and lower carbon emissions.
The statistical data released by DECC showed that a higher proportion of houses in Scotland benefited from having improved insulation installed or new boilers fitted than the rest of the UK. In fact, 24.5 measures were installed for every 1,000 homes in Scotland, more than the UK figure of 20.5.
Nevertheless, the Scottish Federation of Housing Associations (SFHA) has expressed its serious concerns that the ECO scheme would be relaxed, under new rules regarding green energy set out by the UK Government.
The HeatSave TRVs are assimilated to the “heating controls” category of energy-saving measures and enable users to set specific functioning times for each valve. Because radiators are individually controlled, users are fully capable to maximise the zoning potential and reduce energy consumption in areas that are not occupied for longer periods of time (as for example, dining or sitting rooms and kitchens during the night, etc.).
Additionally, the HeatSave wireless thermostatic radiator valves also provide an automatic exercising feature when unused for 7 days, whose purpose is to minimise seizing of radiator valves in warmer months.
All in all, the HeatSave TRVs enable users to achieve some pretty impressive savings, as they will help reduce your heating bills by up to 30%.
