Homeowners can reduce energy usage by up to 30% by installing easy-to-use heating controls and using these controls efficiently.
Heating controls can help you to accurately match your space heating and hot water schedules to the working and living patterns in your house i.e. when heat and hot water are required, it is there; when it is not, it is turned off.
Your heating systems should be split into two independently controlled "zones"; 'Space Heating Zone' and 'Domestic HotWater Zone'. You are then able to heat your domestic hot water without being forced to turn on your space heating. Additional zones can used in large homes to split upstairs and downstairs or living areas and bedrooms.
Also you don't have to heat hot water if you are not using it. Your new controls will only heat water when you need it.
