For most of us, the first step in cutting carbon emissions it to take control of our heating. We can reduce our carbon emissions and energy usage by making sure we’re not using more heating than we need.
Heating controls are evolving rapidly and investing in modern, easy to use controls is a good way to make sure you’re only using heating when necessary. To do this effectively, for a central heating system you’ll need a timer or programmer, a room thermostat and thermostatic radiator valves.
Smart heating controls are available for all types of heating system, including electric storage heaters. Some systems include automation features, which can help by working out exactly when to turn the heating on and off.
