Around 500 homes in Worcestershire set to become more energy efficient

Around 500 Worcestershire homes are set to become significantly more energy efficient after taking part in a £3.5million scheme, a recent news report in the local media has been able to reveal.

The homes in Pershore, Pinvin, Evesham, Broadway and Badsey will have solid wall insulation installed as part of the program delivered by British Gas and Rooftop Housing, which means that residents will be able to heat their homes more efficiently and should also result in lower energy bills.

David Young, managing director of British Gas Energy Efficiency, said: “We’re really pleased to deliver this project in Worcestershire in partnership with Rooftop Housing. This scheme will transform residents’ homes, making them warmer and should result in lower energy bills for them as well.”

While insulation will certainly help keep costs down, putting in heating and zoning controls is certainly something residents should seriously consider.

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.
