As Britain’s temperatures are set to soar again over the weekend, engineers at Teddington Systems have created a product capable of significantly improving domestic water-efficiency.
Teddington Systems, which is a global leader in the design, development and manufacture of appliance control systems and products for a range of industries worldwide, has received a major water-efficiency endorsement for one of its products.
The company’s innovative CombiSave design has been awarded the ‘Waterwise Recommended Checkmark’, meaning it has been recognised for its water-efficiency.
Organisation, Waterwise, remains the leading independent authority on water efficiency in the UK and Europe, and runs the Waterwise Recommended Checkmark scheme to highlight the most water-efficient products and services in the UK.
Engineers at Teddington Systems design, test and can manufacture the appliance to specified volumes. Alongside this, the international company also supply contract electronics manufacturing services across a range of sectors that include defence, automotive, HVAC, lighting and utilities.
Conserving water: save consumers money and benefit the environment
Independent tests by consultants EA Technology have reportedly shown that CombiSave can save a two-person household up to 28,000 litres of water and up to 600 kWh of gas every year; in total, reducing CO2 emissions by up to 130kg.
In fact, the time it takes for water to heat up is reportedly reduced by nearly half, this could save homeowners money on their utility bills and help the environment by reducing water waste and carbon emissions.
CombiSave is a thermostatically controlled valve that can be fitted quickly and easily to most combination boilers. It automatically controls the flow of water every time a hot tap is turned on, allowing the boiler to heat the water faster and only returning the flow to normal once a usable temperature is reached.
With areas of Britain set to hit upwards of 30C this weekend, and water supply potentially restricted as in the previous month, installing the product could improve water-efficiency throughout homes.
Homeowners can save water and money on their utility bills with the product, and plumbers and heating technicians can demonstrate water-saving benefits to their customers potentially generating a new income stream for their own business.
