Commercial Systems

Buildings are vastly different in size, form and age; some are older, refurbished properties while others are purpose-built. Such features impact on energy use and more importantly on opportunities for energy savings. EndoTherm can be dosed into the bulk water of any commercial heating system at a dose of just 1%.

Application Areas

EndoTherm works in any wet central heating system, regardless of size delivering real energy savings.

The Problem

Heating is the largest utility cost in the majority of schools. On average a school spends £44 per pupil on heating in a single calendar year which accounts for around 60% of its total utility outlay. As the largest utility cost, it is also has the biggest potential to be reduced and to save school money whilst helping the UK achieve its ambitious carbon reduction targets.

Common practice to reduce heating bills is to turn down your thermostat but this is not practical in an education environment as schools have to adhere to the minimum classroom temperature requirements set by the Education Regulations for School Premises.

The Solution

EndoTherm is an award winning central heating additive which is independently proven to reduce heating consumption by up to 15%. EndoTherm has recently won the 2016 CIBSE: Building Performance Awards, Energy Saving Product of the Year.

EndoTherm is installed into any water based heating system at a 1% concentration. With a quick easy install, zero maintenance and proven longevity, EndoTherm is an ideal solution to reduce the heating bills within your school.

EndoTherm is also 100% organic, this means the embodied carbon (carbon used to manufacture the chemical) is very low. A typical EndoTherm installation will offset this embodied carbon in just 1 day!

Immediately after the installation of EndoTherm the temperatures within the building increased. In the end, sufficient heat was coming from the overhead pipework that the radiators were all turned off.

Home / Commercial Systems / Energy Savings in Leisure

Energy consumption is typically a large part of the budget of any leisure facility, All centre managers will recognise the importance of keeping customers and staff comfortable but it is possible to minimise the cost of heating, regardless of which system is in place using EndoTherm. Many suggestions for energy savings in leisure (raising awareness and changing attitudes) may only provide short term gains unless incorporated into a long term strategy. EndoTherm can be installed into any wet based central heating system and once installed requires no maintenance or optimisation achieiving savings from the moment it is installed for as long as it remains in the system.  

‘In a typical sports centre, energy costs are second only to labour costs, accounting for as much as 30% of total running costs — a higher figure than in most other sectors.’ Energy Savings in Leisure – Just by making a 10% improvement in the management of energy use, UK leisure facilities could save up to £70m each year and reduce greenhouse gas (carbon) emissions by hundreds of thousands of tonnes.

Leisure Centre – Case Study

100 Litres of EndoTherm was installed at a large sports & leisure centre between January & April 2013. The centre had a heating system of 2 x Ideal Viceroy GT boilers serving a capacity of 10,000 litres of water. Not all the gas consumed was used in the heating of the centre. 50,000kW of energy per month was used in an external circuit to heat the swimming pool and was subtracted from the total usage to identify gas used specifically in the heating of the building. The addition of EndoTherm to the centres heating system has saved an average of 17.9% over the 10 month test period.

EndoTherm is dosed at just 1% with a proven saving of 15% and a typical payback of less than 3 years. For a Free Survey or more information, 

If you are running a residential care home, the last thing you want to worry about is how much energy is being wasted on heat. 

Care homes are high users of energy for heat. this is required to maintain the comfort levels of its occupants. Therefore many care home managers are looking for new ways of saving energy within their buildings. EndoTherm is that answer!

EndoTherm can be installed in any wet based central heating system and improve the efficiency of the heating system within a care home environment by up to 15%. The product is easy to install at a single point and thus does not require the displacement of any of the occupants of the property.

There is an urgent need for residential care homes and nursing homes in the UK to ensure viability with sustainable development. At base, the country’s 20,349 UK care homes are faced with the prospect of energy bills doubling over the next 10 years.

This almost inevitable pressure on financial resources will increase the burden on the UK’s 14,750 residential care homes and 5,599 nursing homes that have seen energy bills rise by nearly 40% over the past three years.

Care Home – Case Study

A Care Home in Greenock, Renfrewshire installed EndoTherm in an aid to reduce its rising heating bills. Like all care homes, it needed to be kept warm (26°C). and utilised over 160 radiators within the several parts of the building. A total of 10 Litres of EndoTherm was installed.

The recorded usage for the time period was compared with the same period from the previous year (compensated using degree days from a nearby weather station. The savings attributable to EndoTherm was calculated to be approximately 15%.

Energy Savings for Care Homes – EndoTherm is dosed at just 1% with a proven saving of 15% and a typical payback of less than 4 years. 

The UK healthcare sector spends more than £400 million per year on energy. Unfortunately a significant proportion of this is wasted which is wasting important public funds which could be used elsewhere.

Furthermore, Most Energy Managers will recognise that an effective heating systems will provide better conditions for patients and staff.

However, Patient welfare comes first, so turning down the thermostat is not always the best option. Other energy saving products and methods are the answer to this paradox.

EndoTherm™ has been installed in a number of NHS hospitals in the UK. The product can be installed into any wet based central heating system from small clinics to large hospital systems.
