Accurate system controls save money by reducing heat wastage. Did you know that by reducing room temperature by 1°C, you can save up to 10% off your annual fuel bill? Being able to control the temperature accurately throughout your home means you can concentrate the heat in the rooms you use most and keep the others cooler. It also means you can adjust the temperature in each room quickly and easily. It’s a good idea to improve your heating controls when you buy a new boiler and even more important if you want to combine your oil heating with a renewable energy system. We recommend that you talk through the options with your local OFTEC heating technician and discuss what would work best for you.
System controls are one of the options included in the government’s Green Deal scheme, which provides a way to fund energy efficiency improvements at minimal upfront cost.
