Heating Controls For Colder Winters

As experts predict colder winters ahead, is it time to update your heating controls?

As the first few weeks of 2010 showed, it only takes a short period of very cold and snowy weather to push up demand for electricity and gas. With more people staying at home, boosting the heating as the temperatures drop and keeping it running at higher temperatures, it’s likely that most households will see a heftier bill for the winter quarter. If you’re looking for a way to save money, why not update your heating controls?

Weather Trends and Heating Controls

Although weather trends are hard to predict, the UK has seen a couple of consecutive winters with heavier snow and lower temperatures. Climate scientists are modelling future trends in weather around the world, but for long-term forecasts – several years ahead – precision is difficult and only very general trends can be identified. Some experienced climate scientists however, have predicted that colder winters are here to stay – possibly for several years to come. There’s no doubt that the winter of 2010 has been harsh for many, with places experiencing the lowest temperatures for two or three decades and even traditionally winter-warm places like Florida reaching below zero degrees. Keeping your house warm in these conditions is important – but you also want to make sure that you don’t spend more than you have to:

  • Efficient heating – installing new heating controls can help to make your system more effective. Whilst you should also consider improving the insulation in your home and even looking for ways to supplement your existing system with renewable energy, installing smart heating controls will allow you to set your heating more accurately both in terms of time and temperature, reducing your energy use and your energy bills.
  • Pay-back – like all efficiency products, there’s an initial outlay in buying new heating controls. What matters, however, is how quickly those changes pay for themselves. Whilst solar panels and turbines may take many years to pay for themselves, good quality, high performance heating controls can save you their cost in just 18-24 months.
