Secure UK Ltd Launches New Home Energy Efficiency Product

Radbot rolled out as a ‘solution for our times’   

Smart home technology specialists, Secure UK Ltd, has announced the roll out of Radbot, a new intelligent thermostatic radiator valve (TRV), designed to instantly increase the energy efficiency of existing heating systems, and reduce the cost of heating homes. 

The smart device, which can be fitted in minutes to traditional radiators on any wet central heating system throughout the home, uses an innovative self-learning algorithm that continually monitors the home environment, predicting and adjusting heating to occupancy patterns.

Put simply, Radbot only heats the space in the home that is used.

Endorsed by The Energy Saving Trust, Radbot can save up to 30% on home heating bills by reducing the energy used to heat empty rooms.  

Trials have proven that, at the present time, this could equate to an average saving of £180 a year, with that potential saving set to increase in line with the rapidly rising cost of energy.

UK energy regulator Ofgem has reported that the wholesale price of gas has increased by 335% in the past 12 months, and was forced to raise the energy price-cap by 50% in April, increasing energy costs by an average of £700 a year for 22 million people.

A further increase in the cost of energy will come into effect on 1st October, and despite the recently announced energy price cap, the End Fuel Poverty Coalition estimates that 6.7 million people in the UK will still be left in fuel poverty.

With social landlords powerless to influence energy process, many are exploring how smart devices like Radbot 1 can deliver immediate relief to customers.

A Radbot can be easily installed by either the home owner, landlord or property manager, by simply replacing the existing radiator valve with the new similar sized device.

And unlike new heating systems or smart thermostats there’s no need for a plumber or engineer, and crucially the device operates without an internet connection, so there’s no need for a home wireless internet link, to use a smart phone app, or to remember passwords for an account.

“We see Radbot as a product of our time – a simple but innovative solution that can make a big difference in reducing spiralling home energy costs today.

“Lower income households are being hardest hit by the perfect storm that is driving up energy, and despite the recent energy price cap – people need practical help now, particularly those on pre-payment meters, whose bills have been caped at a higher rate.

“Over the longer term, the mass retrofitting of homes with energy efficient heating systems and smart thermostats will deliver lasting change, but in the meantime people need all the help they can get to reduce the day-to-day costs of running their existing boilers.”

Matt continues:

“Radbot works on any wet central heating system, including heat networks, and is another good example of Secure UK Ltd developing and delivering a pragmatic solutions that are easily accessible to the majority, both in terms of its simplicity and price.

“All of Radbot’s game-changing complexity is absorbed into the devices self-learning algorithm, which means all the easy-to-access benefits are passed on in one neat box – simply screw it in and turn it on.”

Matt concludes:

“At the present time, Radbot is available via the trade, and we foresee real value for the social housing market, where many tenants are being hardest hit by the rising cost of living. Radbot could be another practical measure landlords take to quickly reduce bills.

“Radbot also provides a SAP uplift, which can improve EPC ratings and help meet energy efficiency targets.”
