Tips – High Consumption during school holidays?
* The heating is left running during the school holidays and weekends. Weekend and holiday use should be close to zero, with only a small amount of gas used to prevent the water pipes from freezing in really cold weather.
* Your thermostats are turned up too high. A 1C decrease in temperature on the thermostat leads to about a 10% decrease in gas consumption.
* Your heating comes on too early in the morning. It is normally adequate for your heating to come on between 5.30 to 6.30am.
* Your hot water system is left running all year round.
What could you do?
* Reduce your heating and hot water during the school holidays to as low as 5C
* Turn down the thermostat by 1C or more.
* Set the boiler to come on later in the morning.
Waterplus - Notice for centrally paid sites
Due to ongoing issues with Waterplus consolidated billing, Birmingham City Council have requested all sites to be unconsolidated and billed directly.
Letters have been issued by Waterplus advising schools that a new account has been set up from 3rd November 2019. All invoices will now be sent directly to schools for payment.
Water Meter Readings
Please ensure that you take a reading from your water meter(s) as Waterplus will otherwise estimate your water usage.
Water meter readings should be sent directly to Water Plus: 0345 072 6072 | firstname.lastname@example.org
Can you move suppliers for water?
