Mrs A. Brooks (Sidmouth, Devon)

Mrs A. Brooks (Sidmouth, Devon) I felt I must write and let you know how pleased I am with my new boiler and the men who installed it – John and Tom – they both worked very hard and left everything clean and tidy. Thank you for sending two such excellent young men!

Renewable Energy Targets Have Been Set For Next UK Government

Leading renewable energy trade bodies have untied together to set out six ‘key tests’ for all UK political parties ahead of the next general election in May 2015. A renewables manifesto statement has been launched alongside a campaign which is hosted on the Action for Renewables Website. The campaign is focused on encouraging members of the public to write to different part leaders and encourage them to take the principles forward into the election. Renewable Energy plays currently accounts for 15% of Britain’s power and plays an important part in helping to lower the UK’s carbon emissions and secure our energy supplies. It is estimated that the use of renewable enenergy is set to increase, estimated to account for a third of the UK’s power supply by 2020. The Six key tests that have been set by the trade bodies are: 1. Support the Climate Change Act to keep us on course to meet our carbon commitments and back global efforts to tackle climate change. 2. Set a new renewables target for 2030 of 30% of UK energy. 3. Back the Independent Committee on Climate Change’s recommendation to set a binding target for low carbon electricity by 2030. 4. Fund the Renewable Heat Incentive for new applications after 2016. 5. Boost the UK’s Renewable Transport Fuel Obligation to reach the 10% renewable energy target for transport by 2020. 6. Reform the EU Emissions Trading Scheme to ensure the market takes account of all sectors’ polluting cost of carbon emissions.

What Is A Typical Households Energy Use?

Energy bills are one of the largest regular bills that UK households have to pay, behind mortgage, rent and council tax. The average household’s dual bill – which covers both gas and electricity – currently works out at around £1,264 a year. This is an average amount, and the actual amount you will pay will depend on your energy consumption and the methods of payment. The typical consumption figures for energy use were last reviewed by Ofgem in 2011, a typical energy consumption is the amount of energy that a `typical’ household – with a medium level of energy consumption – uses in a year. The typical consumption figures for gas were found to be 15,500kWh a year, and 3,300kWh for electricity. Before this review by Ofgem, typical energy consumption was last reviewed in 2003 by Energywatch, who found that typical consumption of gas were at 20,500kWh a year per household and electricity at 3,300kWh. This shows that in the ten years between each review, energy consumption has stayed the same while gas consumption has decreased. The reason for gas consumption decreasing may be due to UK household’s growing fears of rising energy costs. Households are generally becoming much more aware of their energy consumption, and are looking at ways in which they can cut the cost of their annual energy bills. This may be achieved by making energy efficient improvements to the home such as: Insulation, double glazing, installing a new energy efficient gas boiler or installing a biomass heating system. Electricity consumption has remained the same in the 10 years between the two reviews. There could be...

Are Your Water Appliances Suffering From Hard Water?

Living in an area that has hard water causes all sorts of problems, including playing havoc with your homes water appliances. Heated hard water forms a scale of calcium and magnesium deposits, known as limescale, that can lead to reduced operation and even breakdown of appliances that need water to operate such as your washer, dishwasher or shower. Pipes can become blocked with the limescale that the hard water has created, ultimately reducing water flow and eventually requiring replacement. Limescale also has a negative effect on your energy bills, and has been known to increase annual bills by up to 25%. There are many areas that suffer from hard water in the UK, the South East, Yorkshire and the Midlands tend to be the main problem areas. In these areas the water has been described as “hard to very hard” and has above 200mg/l as calcium carbonate equivalent. People who live in hard water areas could benefit from investing in a water softener, such as Kinetico, which is designed to take out the calcium and magnesium (limescale) from hard water. The Kinetico uses a process called ‘ion exchange’ – the only proven method to totally remove the minerals from the water that cause limescale. The H&V News Awards judges have selected the organisations who demonstrated the very highest standards in their respective fields for the 2016 Awards, and the Just Energy Solutions Team is proud to have been shortlisted for both the “Energy Efficient Installer of the Year” and “Smart Installer of the Year” categories.Following the established format, the first phase of judging took place online, with judges reviewing...
