Reduce energy consumption through effective boiler controls

Support provided by Visit Scotland

What does this involve?

VisitScotland has created the sustainable tourism fact sheet: boiler controls. It supports Scottish tourism and hospitality businesses to manage energy more efficiently.

Heating can account for more than 40% of total energy use, yet a large proportion of this is wasted due to incorrect control settings.

By controlling your heating better, you will not only save money and reduce your carbon emissions, but you will also improve overall comfort for guests and staff.

This guide has advice on:

  • the different types of boiler controls
  • using a Building Energy Management System
  • the importance of boiler maintenance
  • the use of zoning throughout your business (where different temperatures may be required in different areas of the building)
