Scottish government sets up new £224m energy efficiency fund
Around 28,000 homes in Scotland will have various energy efficiency measures installed under the Scottish government’s new Warmer Homes Scotland energy efficiency scheme, a recent news report in the local media has been able to reveal.
The £224 million initiative will target households identified as fuel poor, including those in rural and island areas.
A new service which will provide advice on how to reduce heating bills and which home energy improvement schemes people are eligible for has also been launched.
Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said: “Through this scheme, the Scottish Government will deliver the best possible help to thousands of people who are blighted by fuel poverty, struggling to keep their homes warm and pay their energy bills.
“Warmer Homes Scotland is tailored to give vulnerable households living in fuel poverty access to measures to make their homes more energy efficient.”
Wireless programmable thermostatic radiator valves offer the best returns in terms of energy efficiency and overall installation costs. 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.
