Calls made to bolster energy efficiency in British homes
All homes that are being sold or let should uphold a minimum set of standards for energy efficiency, a fresh report by think tank ResPublica has suggested.
This is just one of a number of measures being suggested to help consumers improve the energy efficiency of their properties, as the organization has also called for Government-guaranteed low interest loans for homeowners to install measures such as insulation and double glazing and for people who make their homes more energy efficient before they sell them to pay less stamp duty.
Furthermore, the report argues that cities should be allowed to keep revenues generated from carbon taxes and levies on energy bills so they can use the funding for local home energy efficiency projects. Plus, local authorities should designate “warm home zones” to target areas where there are few energy efficient properties and people are suffering from poor health as a result, requiring homeowners and landlords to meet strict conditions on energy saving improvements.
Boosting energy efficiency can cut consumer bills, reduce energy demand and carbon emissions, and improve health and well being, the report concluded.
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.
