2 new energy saving technologies for 2014

When people talk about renewable energy saving technologies they are normally associated with a system that is very costly to install. However, 2014 sees the arrival of 2 new technologies that will revolutionise your energy consumption which are affordable for the majority of households to have installed.

Smart Meters

Smart Meters are a new technology that the Government is aiming to have installed at every property in the UK. They are a device that tracks your electricity and gas usage in real-time as you are using the energy.

The display shows the amount of electricity and gas you have used during the day, when the highest peaks of energy use occurred and the cost in pounds or pence. By obtaining your detailed energy consumption information you can then make informed decisions about appropriate energy saving measures, therefore, resulting in less energy waste and lower utility bills.

Another benefit from installing a smart meter at your home or business, your energy provider can remotely read your smart meter so there is no need for you to take meter readings and your bills will reflect your exact energy usage – no more estimated bills!

Neo Heatmiser Heating Controls

Ever wanted to control your heating and hot water remotely from your smartphone or tablet from anywhere in the world? If yes then you will love the Neo Heatmiser!

The Neo Heatmiser is an impressive new technology that can control all of your heating and hot water remotely from anywhere in the world. You will no longer need to fiddle with timers and thermostats – you can do it all through a very easy to use NeoApp. You can either login to your heating system via the internet or you can programme your heating by sending a text message.Have your home warm as you get in the door especially if you work irregular hours and work away from home.

This system is very easy to install and enables you to reduce energy waste whilst still catering for modern lifestyles.

Underfloor heating, although not a heating necessity, is a great way to create clean lines within your home and reduce energy consumption because underfloor heating works best as a long-termlow level heating solution that evenly heats your rooms. The Neo Heatmiser controls lend themselves brilliantly to underfloor heating systems because underfloor heating is often controlled in zones throughout your home. However, this zoning can be a pain because each zone needs to be manually programmed to suit each room’s purpose. With the App you can control up to 32 zones remotely where each zone can have a different setting. You no longer need to come home to a cold house or step out of the shower onto cold floors.
