Viessmann backs national energy efficiency campaign

Viessmann is lending its support to the Heating and Hotwater Industry Council's Hole in the Roof campaign launched today (12 November).
The initiative aims to boost awareness of energy efficiency and persuade people to make a change in their homes that could result in financial savings.

Hole in the Roof would like consumers to change their behaviour and stop wasting energy that is disappearing through a metaphorical hole in the roof.

People can log onto the campaign's website, which features a 2D house, and click on any technology or heating system measure to find out what change would best meet their needs, including thermostats, showers and heat pumps.

The Hole in the Roof campaign is supported by leading environmentalist, Tony Juniper; architectural designer, Charlie Luxton; financial expert Jasmine Birtles and director general of Saga, Dr Ros Altmann.

Viessmann's managing director Graham Russell said: 'Condensing gas boilers play a major role in the future of the UK's energy usage and are paramount for reaching the Government's carbon targets for 2020. We recognise the need for the whole industry to work together to make understanding energy efficiency more straightforward for consumers.'

Roger Webb, HHIC director said: 'The Hole in the Roof campaign is all about making simple changes in the home in order to make your environment more energy efficient. We can't force people to change their behaviour but we can try to tap into the reasons they might want to.'
