1.3.1 Lower the DHW temperature set-point

1.1.3 Lower the DHW temperature set-point Description Water should not be overheated more than necessary (each 10°C rise in DHW temperature increases the energy consumption by around 15%). To save energy, it is recommended to adjust the thermostat of DHW at 60°C (this temperature should not be reduced to avoid problems of [...]

1.2.13 Installation of a programmable thermostat

1.2.13 Installation of a programmable thermostate   Description A programmable thermostat offers pre-programmed settings to regulate the building's temperature. Programmable thermostats can store multiple daily settings (six or more temperature settings a day) that can be manually overridden without affecting the rest of the daily or weekly program. [...]

1.2.11 Cleaning the radiator surfaces

1.2.11 Cleaning the radiator surfaces Description When the radiator heats up, it causes the air around it to rise as it is heated, and this draws up dusty air from the floors. As the dust sticks on the radiators, it acts like a layer of insulation, which reduces the heat transfer efficiency [...]

1.2.16 Relocate thermostats to appropriate areas

1.2.16 Relocate thermostats to appropriate areas   Description To operate properly, a thermostat must be located on an interior wall away from direct sunlight, drafts, doorways, skylights, and windows. It should be located where natural room air currents (warm air rising, cool air sinking) occur. Furniture will block natural air movement, so [...]

1.2.3 Adjust the temperature of the thermostat properly

1.1.3 Adjust the temperature of the thermostat properly   Description Each degree the thermostat is raised above 21° (recommended set point for winter) implies an unnecessary waste of energy of up to 6-8%. While in summer, each degree below 25° (recommended set point for summer) implies an overconsumption of around 6-8%. [...]
