At least 50% of energy use within most buildings are attributed to heating. Inadequate heating can lead to a significant amount of this energy being wasted. This is usually due to poor insulation and inefficient or out of date heating systems. There are a number of ways to reduce such waste. Some of the options are listed below:
Quick and easy to implement:
Insulating roofs, walls and heating systems will significantly reduce heat loss. It is quick to install and the effects are immediate.
Timers and controls
Installing timers and controls gives you the power to control how your heating system operates. By optimising your controls, you can save energy while increasing comfort and reducing maintenance.
Gas boiler optimisation
Fitting your boiler with a gas boiler optimisation unit prevents dry-cycling. This increases your boilers efficiency and can reduce heating costs by up to 20%.
New efficient boilers
If your boiler is dated and you are having trouble with maintenance, it might be time to upgrade your heating system. New efficient boilers will use less energy and will reduce energy bills significantly.
Large area heating systems
If you have space such as a warehouse, sports hall or other large areas that need heating, there are a number of ways to efficiently and cost effectively specify and install a heating system. For example, installing localised radiant heaters in areas that get more use allows you to only heat space that needs it and avoids spending money and wasting energy heating areas that are seldom used.
