Drayton guide tackles consumer confusion over heating

Drayton’s new Wiser Home Heating Guide aims to help consumers get to grips with their energy use. The heating controls company’s latest survey[1] found that 70 per cent of homeowners believe they’re wasting money on energy bills because they don’t fully understand their heating.

The Wiser Home Heating Guide provides practical advice and support for people to best manage rising energy costs. It includes information on the benefits of low-flow temperatures, things to ask their heating engineer and top energy saving tips, as well as a look forward at what future heating systems might look like as we move towards net zero.

The guide looks at how upgrading heating controls can make a significant impact on energy savings. For example, swapping from a basic thermostat to a smart multi-zone heating control with smart modes, like Wiser, can help homeowners save up to £575[2] a year on their energy bills.

Drayton managing director Remi Volpe says: “With our survey finding that 62 per cent of homeowners have tried and failed to personalise their heating system to suit their household needs, it’s clear that there are huge opportunities for heating engineers to be upgrading their customers to easier-to-use heating controls.”
