Why voltage optimisation should be the next green option
When considering the wide range of energy efficiency technologies that can be adopted in the home, it can often be confusing as to where the money should be spent and what should or could be implemented first. Some people consider the payback timeframe, eligibility for CERT or feed-in tarrifs, or the ease of installation.
VPhase believes that their voltage optimisation device is one of those products that people just don't know enough about, but once the facts have been made clear, it's easy to appreciate why VPhase voltage optimisation should be the next green option for the home.
According to a DECC report it is estimated that at the start of January 2011 there were 26.6 million homes in Great Britain. Of these, 23.3 million have lofts and 18.7 million have cavity walls.12.9 million homes had loft insulation of at least 125mm and 10.6 million homes had cavity wall insulation. Yet less than 0.02% of UK homes have voltage optimisation.
Installing VPhase voltage optimisation results in minimal disruption in the home. No change to behaviour or lifestyle required from installing a VPhase unit. As any qualified electrician can fit a VPhase voltage optimisation device – no specialist training or registered installers are required.
VPhase voltage optimisation is a complementary, low cost technology that can work alongside other green technology to improve household energy efficiency, lower overall emissions and result in greater savings.
So, in terms of where homeowners, local authorities and housing associations should be looking to spend their money, the VPhase voltage optimisation offering really is a no-brainer. It's simply a case of fit, forget and save instantly with VPhase.
