ECO energy efficiency scheme only benefits 6% of UK homes, ONS data reveals

Only 6% of British households have actually benefitted from the Energy Company Obligation (ECO) scheme by having an energy saving feature installed in their home, recent statistical data published by the ONS has been able to reveal.

Provisional figures show there were more than 2.1 million measures installed under ECO up to the end of March 2017, with 29,345 installed in March, 47% more than the 19,918 installed in February.

Around 35% of ECO measures were for cavity wall insulation, 24% were for loft insulation and 23% were for boiler upgrades.

Around 19% of activity took place in the North West (384,857), 12% in Scotland (239,672) and 5% in Wales (107,356).

The 694,146 ECO measures in the ‘Affordable Warmth’ subcategory, installed before December 2016, are estimated to deliver £8.25 billion of savings.

HeatSave programmable wireless TRVs – delivering excellent results in saving energy

The HeatSave wireless thermostatic valves (TRVs) can help customers slash their energy bills by up to an impressive 30 percent by allowing them to thoroughly control the heating patterns for every single one of their radiators.

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.

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.
