Vulnerable residents across England and Wales referred to heating help scheme
Saving on energy bills and reducing their energy expenditure is vital for vulnerable residents, who often struggle to keep their houses warm during the winter and often have to choose between eating or heating.
A warmth scheme that aims to help vulnerable people across England and Wales with heating and insulation has already received hundreds of referrals this summer from people in need of heating help.
Npower Health Through Warmth, a scheme that works with charities and other organisations to assist vulnerable homeowners, has taken more than 230 referrals from across England and Wales – a 50 per cent increase on June 2013.
The scheme was launched in 2000 by the energy giant in partnership with National Energy Action (NEA), the national fuel poverty charity.
While schemes such as the Health Through Warmth will certainly help people in need, the truth of the matter is that the underlying problem of households’ energy efficiency has to be sorted out in order to provide a long-term, cost effective solution to this pressing issue.
Implementing extensive energy-saving measures is likely to help home owners reduce their overall bills and also their overall debts to energy suppliers.
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.
