This installation comprised of a brand new Baxi Duotec condensing combination boiler (combi) with a Nest thermostat. The boiler and the heating controls were funded by the Green Deal, which is the Government approved energy saving scheme for homes in the UK.
Currently under the Green Deal, customers like Mr Mileusnic can take out a Government loan and pay this back through their electricity bills. The scheme is a “pay-as-you-save” scheme, which means that installing energy efficient measures like new condensing boilers and state of the art heating controls can save the average occupier £100s on their heating bills. The Green Deal Finance component is the borrowing against that anticipated savings, so the consumer like Mr Mileusnic is no worse off.
To qualify for the Green Deal, Mr Mileusnic used us for the Green Deal Assessment, where in this case Henry (one of our assessors) went round the property and spent about 2 hours explaining all the energy savings that the customer could benefit from. A new boiler, heating controls as well as solid wall insulation were the top 3 recommended measures. With this assessment, Mr Mileusnic through our local Green Deal Provider partner organisation applied for the Green Deal Finance and with it progressed the measures right up them being installed on the wall as you see here.
Most importantly with this help from the Green Deal the customer managed to minimise his household’s upfront cost for the installation, and also have a brand new boiler that is guaranteed for 7 years (labour & parts).
The new Baxi Duotec combi boiler is an A-rated boiler, having a seasonal efficiency of over 89%. The Nest thermostat is not only a tool allowing the customer to set the room temperature, it is also a highly technologically advanced heat control system. With the Nest the customer can set-up electronic on-off times, use the sleek left and right toggle to adjust the temperature, be told about the weather and most importantly set-up the thermostat so that it can be controlled with a smart phone remotely through the internet.
Not only are customers benefiting from energy savings, but they can use the thermostat to function around their own day-to-day busy schedules.
