Heating manufacturer Viessmann, is supporting the Heating and Hotwater Industry Council’s Hole in the Roof campaign.
Launching today, (November 12) the campaign at http://www.holeintheroof.org.uk/ aims to raise the awareness of energy efficiency by getting people to take action and make a change in their homes that could result in financial savings.
Householders can view the Hole in the Roof website and click on any technology or heating system measure to find out what change could suit them best. This can be a simple measure like draft proofing, putting a balloon up the chimney, radiator reflectors or installing a renewable technology.
The website has a 2D house where consumers can click on various heating technologies in the house such as thermostats, solar thermal, showers, heat pumps, controls and other measures.
Hole in the Roof is supported by leading environmentalist, Tony Juniper, BBC’s DIY SOS Charlie Luxton, financial expert, Jasmine Birtles and Director General of Saga, Dr Ros Altmann.
Viessmann’s managing director Graham Russell says, “Condensing gas boilers play a major role in the future of the UK’s energy usage and are paramount for reaching the Government’s carbon targets for 2020. We recognise the need for the whole industry to work together to make understanding energy efficiency more straightforward for consumers.”
