Social housing in the Irish town of Ennis is set for energy efficiency overhaul

Council homes in Ennis, County Clare, Ireland, are set to receive an extensive series of energy efficiency upgrades this autumn, in a bid to reduce overall energy-related costs in the region, a news report on the matter has revealed.

Nearly 130 homes in the town will be a part of the Council’s “major retrofitting programme”, funded by the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI).

Due to be dusted off by mid-October, the updates include ceiling level attic insulation, cavity wall insulation, draught proofing and getting new compact fluorescent or CFL lightbulbs, which use around 80% less energy than traditional incandescent bulbs.

Mayor of Ennis, Cllr. Mary Coote-Ryan said: “I warmly welcome this investment programme for the energy efficiency retrofitting of social housing in the town as it will not only greatly improve the comfort levels for Council house tenants but it will also create new employment opportunities”.

Beside the energy-efficiency measures mentioned above, implementing specific heating zones across these buildings is another interesting way of saving energy and money, and this is specifically where the HeatSave wireless TRVs can be put to good work.

The HeatSave wireless thermostatic radiator valves grant users a superior level of control over their heating zones and radiators, while also enabling users to slash up to 30 percent off their heating bills.They are extremely easy to set-up and install, since users will only have to unscrew the existing TRV by hand and replace with the HeatSave wireless radiator valve.
