Over 1 million properties fitted with energy efficiency measures in February

More that 1 million properties have been fitted with energy efficiency measures in February 2015, according to the latest statistics released by the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC), a recent news report has been able to reveal.

The latest figures reveal that 1,437,000 energy efficiency measures were installed across 1,159,000 properties through a combination of Energy Company Obligation (ECO), Cashback, Green Deal (GD) plans, and the Green Deal Home Improvement Fund (GDHIF).

Almost all of the measures (97%) were installed under the ECO scheme. The government’s flagship Green Deal scheme saw 27,450 assessments lodged in March – a fall of 3% from February’s number.

It emerged on Wednesday that the week ending 19 April saw the highest number of Green Deal plan applications ever, with households applying for £2.5 million in support. The Green Deal Finance Company says that its record-breaking week has pushed the total number of Green Deal plans both pending and live up to £45.6 million.

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.
