Thermoboost, developed over 7 years and recently launched, is a unique energy saving heating system additive. It is now installed in many thousands of domestic and commercial properties. A unique development in fluid heat transfer technologies, formulated by UK chemists, it can reduce heating bills of up to 20%. So where does Global climate change and the UK Government come in to this and why in PHAM?
Most of us have no idea what COP24 means or why it is relevant to our every day lives. Bear with us. Put briefly, it is the ‘Conference of Parties to the UN Convention on Climate Change’ for developed countries being held in Poland this year. It is what the UK Government has signed us up to, it is a legally binding obligation to reduce our green house emissions in businesses and our homes, making them more energy efficient and meeting the UK targets.
As individuals, we are being told to look at our Environmental and Carbon Footprint in the home. The OECD measures household energy consumption as 1 of the key 5 areas, where they exert pressure on the environment. The UK Government is working to reduce this through sustainable additions in the home such as smart meters to monitor our usage and urging effective insulation amongst other schemes. However, there is little mention of how we can make our existing water based heating systems more efficient.
Most existing homes in the UK will not be able to be ‘carbon neutral’ although we are being forced down that route. We are not going to be ripping out water heating systems and radiators to replace them with an eco-system alternative. We can increase their efficiency, improving the homes’ carbon footprint, but also reducing energy consumption without reducing the heat.
By adding Thermoboost to your water heating system you are 1) altering the heating capacity of water, 2) improving the heat transfer between the heat exchange surfaces 3) lubricating the system for maximum performance. By reducing the contact drag and improving the flow over the contact surface area, the heat transfer is increased resulting in better efficiency, quicker warm up times and improved room heat. In short, efficiency means less heat up time = less consumption and reduced fuel bills. It is also non hazardous and environmentally safe so a quadruple whammy.
Based on the energy saving properties of Thermoboost, Wiseman Industries ltd is now providing a certificate upon installation. This can go towards improving the carbon footprint of the home, similar to the energy ratings that come with electrical goods.
