Thermocill is an innovative device that has been three years in the making.

 

Independent researchers from the University of Manchester and the University of Salford have established that :

 

  • Thermocill reduces the amount of energy needed to heat up a room by up to 14%.

  • Rooms heat up 19% faster.

  • The estimated energy savings for a 3-bed semi-detached house is approximately 8% of the total heating or approximately a £93 saving per annum (data source UK Power).

  • The estimated CO2 emission savings in a 3 bedroom semi-detached house is about 150 kg.

  • The addition of a Thermocill unit to a window above a radiator can significantly reduce condensation at the bottom of the window.

 

All those findings have been verified by the Energy Saving Trust.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

What are the health benefits of Thermocill™?

Damp and mould on or around windows, caused by condensation on the window pane, can cause health problems for those living in the household such as:

  • respiratory issues

  • allergies

  • asthma

The only way to prevent this is to clean up the damp and mould and stop it growing. 

 

The only way to stop it growing is to prevent the window condensation causing it.

 

The only effective solution to stop window condensation is Thermocill™.

 

Computer modelling carried out by Manchester CFD, confirms that the wall of warm air created next to a double-glazed window when Thermocill is installed, reduces the level of condensation produced. See our Scientific Evidence.

  • How and where can I install Thermocill™?   

 Thermocill™ is suitable for both newbuild and retrofit household projects.

 

Retrofit is an easy, straight-forward process and the device is particularly suited to social housing energy efficiency improvement schemes.
