London energy efficiency retrofitting scheme gets new cash boost
New funding amounting to almost £12m to expand a programme aimed at making homes and public buildings in London more efficient has been announced.
The cash influx will be used for retrofitting a variety of energy-saving measures, including LED lighting, new boilers, insulation, and the installation of heat and power networks, solar panels, upgrading boilers, and double glazing.
Since the launch of the scheme, back in 2008, more than 400,000 homes and more than 350 public buildings across the city have undergone extensive energy efficiency upgrades.
Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, said: “We need to do everything possible to make the most of our resources, reduce carbon emissions and create a more secure, cost-effective and sustainable heat and power supply across London.
“Retrofitting older homes and buildings has a pivotal part to play in this, while also helping to save us all money on fuel bills. With these innovative energy saving technologies, London is leading the way as a 21st Century world city.”
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.
