Isle of Man government to promote eco-friendly homes to help to cut fuel bills

The Isle of Man government is encouraging house-builders to construct eco-friendly properties and buyers to invest in them in a bid to significantly cut energy bills, a recent news report in the local media has been able to reveal.

A recent report from the Cabinet Office in March revealed 9.9 per cent of households in the island suffer fuel poverty and highlighted the need to improve the thermal efficiency of homes.

Richard Ronan MHK, Minister for Environment, Food and Agriculture, and Ralph Peake MHK, the department member whose remit includes environment, safety and health, spent a day touring examples of European housing technology in Manchester and Lancaster.

‘The technology is increasingly being adopted across the UK in order to reduce property energy consumption and heating bills,’ said Mr Peake.

‘There is great scope for us to increase the use of this type of technology on the Isle of Man as the skills and materials become more readily available. Property is responsible for around 30 per cent of greenhouse gas emissions on the island, so it’s an area where everybody can win.”

HeatSave wireless thermostatic radiator valves – easy to retrofit, perfect for energy saving

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 valve’s controlling software, simple and eas, 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%.
