PassivSystems have launched a campaign to help Cambridgeshire’s home owners tackle rising energy costs and heat their homes ahead of the winter chill.

As one of the UK’s leading home energy management companies, PassivSystems have launched their “Heating the Community” campaign as they seek to empower off grid communities in Cambridgeshire who are most affected by escalating oil prices by supplying heating control systems to some of the most deserving homes in the region.

Statistics gathered by PassivSystems show 27% of homes within Fenland are not connected to the national grid and rely purely on domestic oil and LPG to fuel their homes.

PassivLiving from PassivSystems is an in home system designed to transform the way the home uses energy by helping people to better control their existing heating systems and is has been shown to reduce energy bills by an average of 23 per cent. PassivLiving replaces existing heating controls and can be controlled and monitored in and away from home through mobile apps, the In-Home Display and the PassivLiving online portal.

Colin Calder, founder and CEO of PassivSystems says: “The time is right to help reduce energy costs for oil and LPG users who are held to ransom by escalating prices. We want to work closely with households in Fenland, where our research tells us there is an urgent need for change. Our campaign will help those who are most deserving, who are cut off from the grid and forced to pay high fuel prices, and start a revolution against unaffordable energy costs.”
