Installers are being urged by Wilo to fit energy efficient heating circulator pumps and always look to improve a home’s efficiency where possible.
Over 15 million UK households are energy inefficient, the company said, and many may have old, fixed speed AC pumps.
Additionally, recent estimates have shown more than 100,000 non-compliant central heating pumps are sold in the UK per year, a statement outlined.
David Williamson, sales & marketing director at Wilo UK, said: “The winters have become increasingly daunting for homeowners over the last few years, and while it was promising to see the government provide support last year, we cannot guarantee that this will continue.
“It is important that installers protect peoples’ homes through the systems installed within them. Newer, smart products are not only inherently more efficient, but they also give the installer intelligent insights into where they can reduce energy wastage in their heating system, maximising the potential savings for homeowners.
“There are many cheap products on the market, and the danger is that installers may choose these in an attempt to save the homeowner money. However, the reality is that this short-term saving will cost more in the long run. By picking the right pump, installers can not only aid the fight against rising energy bills, but they can also help property owners save time and expense in the long term.”
