Tool for businesses to optimise your heating controls

Support provided by Zero Waste Scotland

What does this involve?

Take charge of your energy bills with this easy-to-use toolkit. It is available to download as a Word document (96KB).

By setting the correct timer controls, you can ensure that your heating system comes on early enough in the morning to provide the desired temperature for staff and customers when they arrive, without switching on too early and wasting energy. You can also make sure the heating stays on just long enough to keep everyone comfortable during business hours, without heating your premises after everyone has left.

Use the toolkit at various times throughout the year, taking temperature readings at the start and end of each day over a period of a few days. This will help you decide if it's time to change your heating control settings to more effective timings.

Recalibrate your controls regularly to achieve maximum results at no cost and run a more sustainable, low-carbon business.
