Social tenants complain about new heating system’s efficiency

Social tenants in Lochaber have complained about their renewable energy systems actually being less efficient than their previous electric storage heaters, a recent news report has been able to reveal.

Mr Baxter, a councillor for Fort William and Ardnamurchan, revealed that some tenants now had higher energy bills than in the past.

He said: “The main concern I have is that the council has been busy spending lots of money on replacing heating systems with air source pump heating systems on the basis it is for more efficient and cheaper for tenants to run.”

In terms of retrofitting energy efficiency measures in older properties, wireless programmable thermostatic radiator valves offer the best returns. 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.
