Glasgow housing associations to receive energy-saving advice

Glasgow City Council has decided to lend housing associations a helping hand by providing them with advice on cutting energy bills, tackling fuel poverty and reducing the impact on the environment.

A specialist council team has recently presented the associations attending an event hosted by the local authority cutting edge technology and renewables such as district heating, biomass, projects and programmes for insulating city homes, a news report revealed.

The council’s Energy Efficiency Loan Scheme provides interest free loans to help home owners get involved. The scheme is unique in Scotland because it targets all homes in the city, not just public sector stock and because it helps housing associations by pulling together complex funding packages for affordable warmth projects which could not be accessed otherwise.

The aim of the project is to maintain a good supply of quality and sustainable housing, achieved through improving energy efficiency, tackling poverty and deprivation by reducing fuel bills, bringing jobs and investment into the city, reducing Glasgow’s carbon footprint and and tackling fuel poverty.

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.
