How EndoTherm can change Fuel Poverty
The performance of EndoTherm and its impact on fuel poverty has been tested by Welsh social housing provider Trivallis as part of their continuing effort to reduce fuel poverty within its 10,000 households. Almost one third of homes in Wales are classed as being fuel poor (almost 386,000 households) and Trivallis have been at the forefront of a number of energy efficiency and reduction projects including their obligations under the Community Energy Savings Programme (CESP).
EndoTherm was trialled as part of Trivallis’s research into emerging and innovative products by Atega Ltd using methodology set out by the Energy Saving Trust. Fanhuelog Sheltered Accommodation Scheme with numerous one or two bedroomed flats was chosen due to the similarity between each system.
A comparison before and after EndoTherm was conducted compensating for external and internal weather temperatures whilst also comparing against control sites where EndoTherm was not installed.
The average saving was 13.99% would save these small bedsits £33.20 per annum but projections showed larger annual savings for larger properties. A typical two bedroom house using 12,000kWh was projected to save £93.60 per annum whilst a larger three bedroom house (using 15,000kWh) would save £117 per annum.
EndoTherm is inexpensive, easy to install and can be implemented in over 90% of UK households in both gas and off-grid wet heating systems.
Available Energy Efficiency Improvement Technologies
Unfortunately many pioneering energy efficiency schemes rely heavily on government subsidies to survive, and the market is going down a similar path as renewables five years ago. For example, a number of ECO boiler replacement schemes have already been scrapped before they could have a significant benefit to the UK population.
Technologies like insulation are expensive and therefore selective whilst other technologies like smart meters rely on a huge behavioural change to show significant benefit and there is a clear lack of education on using smart meters once they have been installed.
Energy Efficiency can, however, be a self-supporting marketplace and there are many smaller, inexpensive technologies that individual homeowners can implement within their homes to take a proactive stance against fuel poverty. On a national scale, these technologies can have a significant impact on the UK’s energy spend and carbon emissions. These technologies include improved controls (such as TRV’s), draft excluders, and modern technologies including energy saving additives for wet heating systems.
How does endotherm work?
The complete method about this product in here for the customers. Have a look on it.
- Due to the surface tension of fluid and imperfections in materials inside heating systems optimal thermal contact is not made.
- When dosed EndoTherm stably changes the surface tension of the fluid by over 60% whilst remaining non-corrosive.
- This increases the thermal contact which improves heat transfer rate and efficiency.
- Resulting in rooms reaching determined temperature quicker and staying warmer for longer.
- Return water temperature is lower which allows boilers to condensate more efficiently and recover more latent heat.
Less fuel is consumed to maintain thermostatically set temperature
