Independent research findings
Research carried out for BEAMA Heating Controls group, shows that the installation of effective temperature controls on home heating systems has a far more significant effect on minimising energy use than previously predicted.
Tests in a typical UK house, built within an environmental chamber, show that energy consumption by the heating system can be reduced by up to 40% through the installation of a room thermostat and TRVs, with installation costs recovered in a year or less.
Carried out by the University of Salford, the tests also showed how the application of TRVs (thermostatic radiator valves), providing independent temperature control in every room, can significantly improve comfort for householders by providing satisfactory heat distribution around a dwelling. The tests show this is not achieved without TRVs, even if the system is balanced.
