Energy efficiency targets for new homes in Wales get a serious cut
In a bid to support the Welsh economy, the country’s government has decided to actually cut the planned energy efficiency levels for new buildings, from the projected 40% to just 8%, thus reducing the overall costs of building a new home by around 4,000 pounds.
The ministers’ decision is said to be based on a clear and real need to balance the need to reduce greenhouse gas emissions with economic development. Furthermore, initial proposals to require new homes to be fitted with fire sprinklers would now be phased in between 2014 and 2016.
Unfortunately, even if the level of energy efficiency that houses will be required to attain has been lowered, that shouldn’t really be considered good news, given the fact that, on the long-term, home owners and renters will actually have to pay more on their energy bills.
This is exactly where the HeatingSave system could help, given the fact that our energy-optimization system allows home owners to cut energy bills by up to an impressive 30%+.
The system is built around the idea of optimizing the energy consumption levels within any area with the help of an advanced heat-loss algorithm that creates a specific profile for any building and based on that, switches heating on later if its warm and off earlier if its cold.
Additionally, the automatic occupancy detection allows the temperature to reduce to a background when areas are not used and quickly brought up to temperature when they are being used.
