Energy Saving In Care Homes: Why We Care

Lines

According to Carbon Trust, the UK’s healthcare sector spends more than £400 million per year on energy. As well as the amount of money spent in this area, it’s also shocking to learn that a lot of this energy is wasted. There are 21,723 care homes within the UK – that’s 21,723 facilities needing help in their energy saving efforts to really make a difference, not only to the amount of money spent, but to the planet too.

The older generation and those who are more vulnerable need our help more than ever. The staff who care for this section of our population work around the clock to run a range of facilities to ensure that residents get exactly what they need when they need it. However, all that care takes up a lot of energy, with many care homes being open and functioning 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

There will always be a high demand for care homes, so it’s vital we work to make these facilities as efficient as possible. By making care homes as energy efficient as we can today, they can make more long-term savings by reducing the amount of energy that is being used.

 

How can Quintex help implement energy efficiency in care homes?

We’re striving to make as many care homes as energy efficient as we can by the end of 2021 (and beyond!) We can help with our energy saving solutions to cut the costs and work alongside care home staff to see exactly where they can be saving money in their kitchen.

 

Our Cheetah system and care homes go hand in hand

With many residents to look after, staff will be constantly using their kitchens to prepare meals throughout the day. In order to keep up with this, care home kitchens will need a ventilation system that can not only match the demands of the kitchen, but also work hard to save money and energy too where it needs it.

Our Cheetah system can be installed into new or existing care home kitchens, getting to work instantly. Its clever remote dial in access means our technicians can monitor fan speeds, temperature and air flow, ensuring kitchens work to the best of their ability using minimal energy.

 

The benefits of using a demand controlled system such as Cheetah don’t stop there; Cheetah helps to create a safe and comfortable working environment for busy staff by reducing noise pollution as well as managing carbon dioxide levels. The system also uses clever technology to detect when preventative maintenance is needed and when there is a possible fire risk.

Our team has worked hard to create a system that every commercial kitchen can benefit from. Care homes have never been more important to many of us in the UK, so we want to do our part to keep them running and keep them efficient!
