Be an energy-saving hero with help from Resideo

Nearly nine in 10 Brits are concerned by rising energy costs, a new survey from Resideo has found. The heating controls manufacturer has launched a new campaign to highlight the practical recommendations that heating engineers can make to help mitigate rising energy bills now and into the future.

The campaign’s tagline ‘Every crisis needs a hero – installers, this is your time’ highlights the everyday heroism of heating engineers, showing the true value of their work and the impact they can have, particularly against current energy prices. With this in mind,

Resideo will also be supporting heating engineers with digestible information that can be used to initiate conversations with customers about efficiency, as well as its range of products. Informative online content and in-person events will run right across the busy heating season and into 2023.

Thousands of UK households do not have adequate heating controls and may be using more energy than they need, says Resideo. The company is helping gas engineers in their recommendations to customers, with advice on using existing heating controls more effectively and the difference that small upgrades can make.

For example, swapping an old mechanical thermostat for a load-compensating thermostat can help your customer save up to £181 a year. A further £327 per year can be saved by upgrading manual radiator valves to thermostatic radiator valves*.

The company’s Martin Wilson says: “This year’s heating season feels like it will be busier than ever due to a mix of those wanting to get the most out of their existing boiler plus those wanting to replace and update.

“Price hikes are making people think carefully about energy, and installers at the coalface are well placed to offer advice. We want to do everything we can to support installers in giving their customers practical advice, backed up by a range of high-quality, industry-leading solutions.”
