Dundee council bolsters funding pool for energy efficient homes

Energy efficient homes are high on the priority list for Dundee City Council, who has recently granted an extra £3m in funding to this particular segment, following £25 million of investment over the past three years, according to a news report into this matter.

John Alexander, convener of Dundee City Council’s neighbourhood services committee, said: “With funding coming from the council, Home Energy Efficiency Programme Scotland (HEEPS) and Energy Company Obligation (ECO) from the utility companies we are more than half way towards completing our target before the 2020 deadline.

“This programme has installed insulation at almost 2,000 homes giving their tenants and owner occupiers more fuel efficient, warmer and easier to heat homes and the next phase will bring those benefits to almost 800 more in this financial year.”

The EWI programme is particularly welcomed by householders because it increases comfort levels, reduces fuel bills, tackles fuel poverty and reduces carbon emissions, as well as improving the overall appearance of the area.

Residents have reported that 91 per cent of them feel warmer in their homes and 88 per cent were completely satisfied with the work carried out in the programme. As much as 88 per cent of respondents have turned their heating down.

HeatSave Wireless Thermostatic Radiator Valves – The perfect solution for improving energy efficiency in old housing stock

The HeatSave TRVs are designed to work with an extensive range of radiators and enable users to precisely control the activity of every single radiator in their home, and perfectly program it in order to match their own schedule and living habits.

The HeatSave software, designed to run on any Windows™ PC, enable users to set specific functioning times for each valve. Since radiators are individually controlled, the HeatSave valves enable users 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%.
