Housing across the UK accounts for 27% of the country’s CO2 emissions, but this figure will have to be further pushed down in order to attain the target of 80% reduction in carbon emissions by 2050.
In order to do so, home owners will have to put in specific measures designed to make their heating systems more energy efficient, while also better insulating their homes.
Knowsley Housing Trust gives a few noteworthy examples of immediate and effective measures that could be implemented in order to reduce emissions and cut energy bills. The trust has undertaken over the last 10 years to push properties up to the Decent Homes Standards has contributed to a 54% carbon reduction across housing and has also helped tenants save £8.2m in energy bills.
Measures implemented by the team include improving the insulation and airtightness of the properties, which deliver huge social and environmental benefits. It is possible to achieve huge carbon reduction levels in housing, helping people to live comfortably while reducing their energy bills.
The HeatSave thermostatic radiator valves represent some of the easiest to install and most cost-effective energy-saving measures out there, as they 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.
