More Heat & Reduce Gas Bills

Mr Stephen Cranston’s spacious 4-bedroom home in Dunblane suffered from heat loss and poor performing gas central heating.

Despite substantial investments in new double-glazing, cavity wall insulation, more attic insulation, and a power flush of his central heating, the radiators were only lukewarm and the house always cold.

Solution

Platinum Hydro-Genie

Mr Cranston volunteered for an Energy Systems Living Lab test in which a Platinum Hydro-Genie system was installed on his gas central heating system for an independently run, three-month trial. It coincided with particularly cold weather, yet his home’s radiators soon felt much hotter, from top to bottom. Over the three-month trial, gas consumption reduced by 15.8%.

We’ve tried everything to reduce our heating bills and get the house warm. We had the heating on almost constantly over the winter and rarely got the temperature over 19°C.

SAVING

We had the Hydro-Genie installed last winter and have seen savings of around 50% in our gas consumption. My house is much warmer even though I’ve turned down the boiler, the thermostats on the radiators, and reduced the time the heating is actually on.
