Local council in Enfield to launch new Smart Homes scheme

A local council has revealed plans to launch a new scheme aimed at helping private home owners bolster their houses’ energy efficiency, a recent news report in the local business media has been able to reveal.

Under their own Smart Homes scheme, Enfield Council offers government grants of up to 75% of costs towards energy improvements in homes to a maximum of £6,000. The grants are open to both owner occupiers, private tenants and private landlords.

Smart Homes also supports other energy improvements highlighted in a Green Deal Assessment such as double glazing, secondary glazing and or energy efficient boilers. The project is being run by Haringey Council, working with the boroughs of Enfield, Camden, Hackney, Islington, and Waltham Forest, and will run until the 31 of March 2015.

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.
