The Covert & Saving Energy

Saving energy and reducing your carbon footprint makes perfect business sense. It saves money, enhances corporate reputation and helps everyone in the fight against climate change.

Heating can account for as much as 60% of total energy use. However, a large proportion of the energy consumed by heating is likely to be wasted due to incorrect control settings. In fact, it is possible to cut heating costs by up to 30% by implementing some simple measures to help save energy and reduce your carbon footprint.

Heating controls in business premises work on the same principle as those in the home, but usually on a much bigger scale. However, larger buildings are often more difficult to control because:

It takes longer for the building to heat up to the required temperature.

There is a bigger concentration and variety of heat loads and gains (for example, staff and equipment).

There are usually greater variations in usage patterns throughout the working week.


The cost benefits of efficient controls should not be underestimated. The Covert Industrial Heating Control offers considerable energy saving, as tested and proven during product trials. Client testimonies to this can be found on the Home Page.

Poor control of heating and hot water services is the cause of excessive energy consumption in many commercial buildings.  In premises with well-controlled systems, heating fuel consumption is typically 15-30% lower, as specified by the Carbon Trust.

The chart below shows the typical proportion of energy use that heating accounts for in certain sectors:
