Heating system controls and insulation


The effective control of a heating and hot water system will help to achieve comfortable condition, save energy and reduce carbon dioxide emissions.

Heating system controls include time, temperature and zone controls. Where a home is heated by a system of water filled pipes and radiators running from a boiler, the insulation of pipework and components such as hot water cylinders will improve energy efficiency and improve system performance.

To guide you through these, the National Skills Academy have recently produced a series of consumer guides.
