Controller can cut domestic heating bills by 35%

The G-save Economiser controller from Gas-elec is said to be capable of reducing heating bills for gas, oil or LPG installations by up to 35%.

This device has two electronic timers that each pulse at different pre-set times; they run 24 h a day, seven days a week. One timer is wired to the room thermostat and the other to the thermostat on the hot-water cylinder.

The controller pulses the demand for heat so that heat in water that is circulating around the system when the boiler is not active is used to full effect, thus making substantial savings on fuel usage.

This device was awarded Good Housekeeping magazine’s innovation of the month earlier this year.
