In a typical UK household, more than half the money spent on fuel bills goes towards providing heating and hot water.

HOMES heated by steam or circulating hot water have radiators. It’s likely that a lot of heat is being wasted because the hot water circulates through the system and back to the boiler without ever losing all of its heat to the air inside the house.When this happens, people tend to turn the thermostat higher than normally required, thus adding considerably to the heating bill.

After the hot water heats the radiator, heat is supposed to be radiated into the room. The heat actually warms the air in two ways: by radiation and convection. Older-style free-standing radiators of cast iron consist of multiple sections that allow air to flow through and around. The cast iron stores heat, which will continue radiating out into the room for some time after the heat goes off.

So it stands to reason that the hot water circulating through your central heating system and passing through the radiators is constant and the boiler is burning gas in its main gas burner at a constant rate as well. The radiators are designed in such a way that the heat is radiated off and the air surrounding is then distributed around the room through convection. The boiler is controlled by a thermostat and a timer to ensure this is constant throughout.

Now if there was a way to set the boiler to burn gas in the main gas burner only when it was actually required rather than at a constant rate then it stands to reason that we would use less gas consumption and our energy bills would be lower, well it seems there is a way to achieve it.

For a modest outlay of less than £25 plus P&P, you will receive a remote control device that achieves all that and more with full instructions in its use. We have scoured the markets for such a device and this proved fruitless until now. But its not only the remote device itself that is important, but it is how it is installed and used that will give you maximum savings on your utility bills. On purchase you will be sent a full list of instructions along with the remote device which will allow you to maximise savings without having to change your energy supplier. Rest assured this is the best way to save money on your utility bills and the remote device is only available from Energy .

The wireless plug thermostat will operate as a room thermostat that constantly measures the temperature in the room and will switch on or off heating devices as required.  This can easily be programmed to change the room temperature using only two buttons on the remote. This will control any electric radiators or electric fires in the room. It will also control any fans that may be running which ensure that the electric fans are only in use as required. So now instead of leaving the electric fire on constantly burning energy, it can be controlled through the use of this wireless room thermostat. Controls any standard equipment ie. electric fires, electric radiators and electric fans remotely up to 3000 watts.

The Latest Update:
September 2021 sees the energy market at a crisis level with various headlines and risk notices after the gas supply ran into demand difficulties and the supply cost of gas rapidly rose in a matter of weeks which even with a price cap will see the price of household gas supplies rise by around 12 % between £120 -150 on an annual gas household bill. Then on top of this we are seeing electric bills rising and new Ecological Charges being added to cover the cost of renewable energy  installation such as wind farms and distribution charges as fossil fuels are phased out. All in all  every household and businesses are seeing their energy charges rises at an alarming rate for many people who have no choice but to look at  paying the revised costs and are having to find ways to look at decreasing their energy consumption.
There is talk about the need to convert household boilers to use the underground heating source but that is not cheap and the cost is around £20,000 to convert and this is beyond most peoples reach and their are concerns around the fact that you are having to use a water pump and convection style heating both of which require fans and it is the consumption of energy from these fans alone that will take a large percentage of energy savings to be had. Sure you won’t need to use the natural gas for your central heating but you will be using electric to run the fans and this will required every time the water pump is switched on and the convector fans required for each radiator system in each room. So multiply the number of fans and this is the additional electric consumption and as we know electric is not cheap, especially when you add in the Green Ecological charges and running charges.
So for the average householder it is important to look at ways that can help you reduce the cost of your energy bills through thinking and acting smarter and using technological improvements, coupled with new energy saving products that will make your energy usage more cost efficient and offers savings from the more traditional methods. Not everyone has £20,000 to convert to the new boilers being spoken about. But we can all do something that will help. The latest idea to heat your home is using Infared heating which offers a new way to heat your home for very little cost compared to the conventional heating methods.  The diagram below explains the differences.
Convection Heating in the home works by warming up the air around you when the radiator warms up, it heats the air directly around it, which then expands and rises. As the hot air rises, it creates a vacuum behind it, which pulls colder air into contact with the radiator, causing it to heat up. As the hot air begins to cool down it drops back down to floor level. This cold air gets heated again and this process keeps repeating itself – this is known as convection heating.
Infrared Heating is a fairly recent addition to the domestic heating scene. Infrared is emitted from the heater, which then travels unimpeded through the air until in the room which then absorbs the Infrared then the the object will also radiate heat into the room. Heating with Infrared is a clean, health beneficial and very energy efficient way of heating a room.
There is no other more instant, economical, healthier and environmentally friendly way of heating.
We’ve been using infrared radiation as a primary heat source for centuries, from the first primitive fires to central heating radiators to underfloor heating. Any heater that radiates heat is using infrared, so it’s the most common and natural form of heating in the world. What separates infrared heaters from other products is that they solely heat using radiation and not through a combination of radiation and convection.
Infrared Heating works like the Sun, it emits Infrared Waves but they heat solid objects that they come into contact with. This is turn produced the heat in the room. The energy needed to heat a room is around a third less and there is less heat lost than the convection style heating. There is reduced dust for people to inhale making it more healthier as well for anyone with breathing difficulties. It helps by preventing damp and mould growth by heating up the walls and gives an even heat distribution around the room giving the same comfort levels as convectional electric heaters at lower settings. Of course as there is is less electric required the to be drawn from the circuit your running costs are significantly reduced giving you a financial benefit for the same heat comfort level.
For example you could have a central heating system and a radiator in each of the bedrooms. If you were to install an Infrared Heating panel in each bedroom you could switch off the 3 radiators and just switch on  the Infrared when it was required in the room. This would make your central heating more efficient straight away as there would be less draw on the system. The cost of running the Infrared would be lower consumption that that of a gas boiler system. The occupant would have more control of when to switch the Infrared Heating on, so if they were not in the room for example and they didn’t require it, it could be switched off.

IR heating is thought of as healthier than other options since they don’t reduce the content of oxygen or humidity in the home. Other types of heating can cause static or lead to dryness in your skin and sinuses. Since IR heaters create heat with light, you can enjoy warmth as you would from sunlight without harmful UV radiation. IR heat can even lead to better blood circulation and lower blood pressure.

Unlike other types of heating devices which suck humidity out of the air while they work, IR heaters won’t create any dry heat. This will reduce uncomfortable symptoms like dry throat and itchy eyes. This also reduces skin dryness that other heating sources can cause.

The Infrared panels themselves come in various sizes and can be fitted to the wall, ceiling or free standing depending on your requirements. The lower the amps drawn the cheaper the running costs and the more heat it will produce so this will dependent of the heating space required. So for example a small electric fire might draw 1000 amps but the electric panel might draw 250 amps so for the same ampage you could fit 4 small panels in the room. Equally you might find that 2 panels was sufficient and you have halved your usage cost or maybe even 1 in which case you’re saving three quarters of the cost of running the small electric fire.
  • Gentle Heat and Comfort: IR heaters will warm you up no matter how cold it is outside. Inside your IR heater, there’s a circle-shaped hot coil that is designed to transfer heat evenly. This heat is then reflected by the reflector (a specific type of polished metal), which is why you can feel the warmth even several meters away from your heater. In addition, this type of heating system isn’t affected by wind or drafts in your home.
  • Instant Warmth: IR heating gives you warmth instantly. Rather than heating up the air the way many other heaters do, these devices warm the objects in front of them. Heating up the air is a less efficient way to keep your room toasty during the winter months. IR heating produces rays that warm you thoroughly, penetrating your clothing and skin. The rays produce a widespread heat by heating up the objects in the room. This effect is immediate, so you don’t have to wait in discomfort before getting warm.

Other space heaters need time to cool down after you shut them off before you can turn them back on and use them again. IR heaters, on the other hand, will create the same reliable, strong heat regardless of how much time there is between being turned off and on again.

Consistency and stability are two of the key elements which infrared heating panels will bring to a property. Warmth is dispersed throughout the room consistently, with no difference in temperature between the floor and the ceiling.

As the circulation of air within a room is not adversely affected, stable air conditions are maintained throughout and humidity is not a problem. In some instances, damp and condensation can also be reduced.

Another important aspect of infrared heating panels is their energy-efficiency. As they work on the principle of infrared energy being absorbed by natural materials, less heat is required to bring a room to optimum temperature.

Often a heating panel will only cost a few pence per hour to run. This is not just good news for your finances. With less energy required to run this kind of infrared heating system, the long-term negative effects on the environment can be reduced dramatically, ensuring a brighter future for the planet.
