Portsmouth City Council scheme to offer free assessments on energy efficiency

A local authority has decided to set up a new community energy efficiency scheme designed to help residents reduce their overall heating and electricity bills, and will offer free assessments on energy efficiency as part of the package.

The Solent Green Deal is being rolled out by Portsmouth City Council and aims to provide advice on how to make affordable energy efficient improvements to homes using council approved local contractors, a news report in the local media can reveal.

Energy assessors will visit homes and recommend a set of improvements such as loft, wall or door insulation, double-glazing, solar power or biomass boilers. They will estimate how much this could save on energy bills and, once the works are finished, they will complete they will complete another check and provide an EPC certificate.

Every home owner out there should seriously consider implementing energy saving measures designed to help them cut their energy bills, and HeatingSave is the perfect solution for this task.

Building Energy Management Systems are capable of delivering extensive monitoring and control options, compared to basic controls. They typically employ data from a variety of sources (boiler flow and return sensors, internal and external temperature sensors, occupancy sensors, humidity sensors, etc.), and enable the perfect optimization of a building’s boiler-based central heating system.

HeatingSave is also approved to work and save fuel within the Energy Technology List, which is managed by the Carbon Trust on behalf of the Government. It is also approved by the Department of Energy & Climate Change and the Energy Savings Trust and was specified by the Building Research Establishment for the energy efficient homes retro-fit program, called The Greenhouse Project.

Last, but certainly not least, it’s important to mention that HeatingSave is a component part of the Government’s Green Deal program.
