Heating controls can cut bills by 40%. So why aren't they in every home?
10 December 2013
Home heating accounts for 23% of UK energy demand and has increased by nearly a
quarter since 1970 with over 95% of UK homes heated by a gas or oil boiler. If we are
to meet our carbon targets it is essential that we do everything possible in the short to
medium term to reduce wasted energy from these boilers, which we must remember
are the biggest single energy consuming appliance within the home.
This BEAMA white paper asks what more can be done to ensure that every UK home has a good set of heating controls.
