Millions of homes across the UK require energy efficiency upgrades, report reveals
More than 5 million properties across the UK have received no energy efficiency upgrades whatsoever, a new report by consumer group Which? has been able to reveal.
The group s calling for a switch to a long-term “local approach”, partly funded by a levy on energy suppliers and paid into a central pot.
The funds would be allocated to local authorities to roll-out energy saving measures from 2017.
The UK Green Building Council (UK-GBC) agreed the need for a local approach to boost home energy efficiency.
Policy and Public Affairs Officer Richard Twinn added: “The real game changer however would be for Government to back energy efficiency with infrastructure funds to create a programme that would not only transform the UK’s cold and draughty homes but create jobs and make additional money for Treasury.”
Wireless programmable thermostatic radiator valves offers the best returns in terms of energy efficiency. The HeatSave wireless TRVs enable users to set specific functioning times for each valve, and, since radiators are individually controlled, home owners are fully capable to maximise the zoning potential and reduce energy consumption in those areas that are not used 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%, especially when coupled with the HeatingSave Building Energy Management System.
