Building energy management systems can help slash overall energy consumption
Buildings (and especially older, poorly insulated ones) account for around 40 percent of energy consumption around any home, and fitting them with efficient energy management systems could lead to significant lower consumption levels and savings in terms of both energy and money, a recent whitepaper by ABB has recently been able to reveal.
Building energy management systems (or BEMS) allow building owners to control and monitor their heating and cooling systems, lighting, and various electrical appliances without much extra effort or compromises on comfort.
Motion detectors, for example, can ensure that energy is only used when occupants are present, while light control that assesses outdoor light can also minimise the use of daytime lighting.
These technologies could help deliver half the cuts in emissions needed to slow global warming over the next 25 years, says ABB.
HeatingSave – slash energy bills and cut carbon emissions in a fast and easy way
Replacing your central heating clock with a HeatingSave energy and boiler management controller is the quickest way of beating those tariff rises and saving on energy costs, often paying for itself in less than a year but almost always in less than 3 years.
HeatingSave can cut your energy usage by 20% to 30% with its energy management control, as its internal microprocessor constantly calculates and improves the efficiency and savings of your central heating system.
Using HeatingSave, simply choose the room temperature and the hot water you want, and when, and HeatingSave does the rest. It works with all central heating systems – oil, gas or coal – and links up with a PC to produce reports and graphs to fashion a powerful and complete energy management system.
The system is backed by the Carbon Trust and the Energy Savings Trust.
