The eu.bac Homes sector group represents European manufacturers of control and balancing equipment for residential properties. The long term aim of the group is to ensure that all homes in Europe benefit from appropriately controlled and balanced heating, cooling, ventilation and hot water systems.
The Homes group will be working hard in coming years to raise awareness of the energy saving benefits of controls and balancing equipment and to help installers, specifiers and policy makers deliver efficient technical building systems.
We will also continue to work positively and proactively with the European Commission to ensure that the drive for more efficient systems is integrated within legislative mechanisms and directives. The last thing we want to see are more efficient buildings filled with more efficient appliances but with less energy being saved than predicted – something that can easily happen when the fundamental role of controls is overlooked.
It is essential that Europe gets to grips with the need for controls to ensure that energy and carbon savings are delivered in practice, and for end users to receive the benefits of lower fuel bills that can result from better energy management. Eu.bac Homes will be working to make these a reality.
