Thermostats and controls - energy efficiency

thermostat and heating controls efficiency

Your hot water and heating accounts for over 80% of your total energy consumption within your home. Installing the right controls in your central heating system can save up to 20% of your energy bill. As part of the Building Regulations part L there are a number of minimum requirements that need to be adhered to when installing a new boiler or replacement boiler but there also further controls that can be fitted to improve energy efficiency even further.

 

Three easy steps

 

• Install the minimum required controls if you have not already done so, this alone can save 17% energy consumption and also reduce your carbon dioxide emissions.

• Pay close attention to your room temperature, turning your room thermostat down by 1°C could reduce heating consumption by up to 10%.

• Reduce the 'on' time of your heating system by 2 hours per day, this can reduce consumption by a further 6%.
