THE POWER AT OUR FINGERTIPS - A manifesto for best practice heating controls in UK homes October

13 October 2021

Heating controls are one of the oldest and most familiar energy efficiency measures. Their role is to regulate the operation of a central heating boiler – which is solely responsible for 80% of the energy consumed in our homes – and reduce waste.


The path to zero carbon requires every home to adopt the best performing energy efficiency technology available. It is time for Government to take the role played by heating controls seriously and to actively drive towards the application of best practice technology in all existing homes, and as part of all heating installations.
