Fire Service Keeps It's Cool!

 London Fire Brigade is just one of a whole host of organisations that is discovering the benefits of installing a revolutionary heating control innovation from leading valve manufacturer Pegler Yorkshire.


The ‘terrier i-temp’ Programmable Radiator Control (PRC) allows independent digital programming of each individual radiator within a building, to allow specific temperature management resulting in increased efficiencies and decreased costs. Most impressively, it could save up to 30% of space heating costs and significantly contribute to the reduction of carbon emissions.


An initial trial at the Brigades Headquarters in the city saw the terrier i-temp fitted on a system of 10 radiators with a view to ascertaining any cost saving benefits and comfort for the staff as part of on-going initiatives to become more energy efficient.


“We were very impressed with the product and, as such, it will be installed at other fire stations within the Brigade where offices operate on the main heating system, delivering increased comfort for our staff and cost efficiencies,” commented Ian Shaw, Environmental and Energy Officer London Fire Brigade. “It is an ideal solution for us and we are able to easily source the product through a local company.”


The terrier i-temp can be added to an existing heating system with no necessity to make any programme changes to the system. The PRC allows individual room by room heating control, which can be particularly effective in shared accommodation or offices where several areas of the building are unoccupied for large amounts of the day. Simply, install i-temps to each radiator and full temperature control can be gained for each individual room.


“With heating identified as one of the highest carbon emitters it was apparent that there was a real market niche for addressing this topical issue,” commented Sindar Singh product market manager Pegler Yorkshire. “Considerable data collection has taken place with a full trial conducted to validate calculated energy savings. We are thrilled that London Fire Brigade has discovered the myriad efficiencies that the terrier i-temp can deliver and appreciate the simplicity of its fitting, programming and usage.”


The terrier i-temp has been recommended by the Energy Saving Trust (EST) and is CE and EMC compliant.
