Local council proves successful in reducing carbon footprint

A local council has proved extremely successful in cutting carbon in its buildings, vehicles and street lights, a recent news report on the matter has been able to reveal.

The North Tyneside Council has reduced its carbon consumptions by 15 per cent in the past four years and is well on track to realise its target of a 34 per cent reduction in its carbon footprint by 2015-16.

The council has embarked on a number of major investment schemes to cut energy use, this includes; installing LED lighting in public buildings, investment in ‘dimming and trimming’ street lighting and improving energy efficiency in its schools, leisure centres and sheltered accommodation.

It has also worked in partnership with other agencies to reduce the borough’s carbon footprint, including North Tyneside Warm Zone which has insulated over 16,000 homes saving residents £2.3m a year on fuel bills and approximately 395,000 tonnes of carbon over the next 40 years.

The HeatSave thermostatic radiator valves are the easiest to install and most cost-effective energy-saving measures on the market. They are particularly suitable for retrofitting, since one simply has to remove the existing TRV and replace it with the HeatSave unit.

The wireless thermostatic radiator valves 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.
