How to reduce your carbon footprint at home with Hive Heating Plus

Hive solutions can reduce your carbon footprint.

Calling all Hive Active Heating customers! As the owner of a smart thermostat chances are your household is already more efficient with its energy than before. But our friends at Hive have now launched an new service called Hive Heating Plus. The plan? To help you save up to £8 a month extra and reduce your carbon footprint at home.

With a little help from Hive Heating Plus you can understand and streamline your energy usage, achieve a savings target for your heating bills, and continue to unite in the fight against climate change – all for just £3.99 a month.

See more, use less, spend less

The idea behind Hive Heating Plus is pretty simple. It removes any guesswork around your bills and shows you precisely how much energy you’re using and what it costs to heat your home, so you can optimise your monthly budget and prevent energy wastage. It also instantly alerts you if it detects a potential issue that might be impacting the efficiency of your heating system and guides you to fix it.

With your Hive Thermostat you can already save up to £110 a year by managing your heating from your smartphone. Combine it with Hive Heating Plus and you could save up to an extra £48 during those cold, winter months. So how exactly does it work? 

The Hive Thermostat can save you money.

Get rid of any guestimations

With Hive Heating Plus, our built-in Heating Budget Tracker allows you to see just how much you’re spending per day or week, broken down to show what’s driving that spend. You then get personal tips to help reduce that spend, based on your usage.

You also get personal predictions on how much you’re likely to spend in the future, as well as cold weather alerts and advice on how to prepare your heating schedule – helping you to be smart about your heating all year round.

Each of these features is designed so you can see more, spend less and watch your savings stack up over time.

In fact, between October 2020 and April 2021, Hive Heating Plus users saved on average over £4 a month – with a quarter saving over £8 a month. That’s despite the fact most of us were at home more than ever.

As you’re saving money, you know you’re using less energy – and reducing that all-important carbon footprint. It’s a win-win!

Maximise your household’s heating efficiency

If you’re considering how to reduce your carbon footprint at home, you’re probably already familiar with the term ‘heating efficiency’. It’s all about how to keep your house warm while wasting as little energy as possible.

Of course, this doesn’t have to mean costly home improvements such as adding loft insulation or installing a new boiler. You can improve heating efficiency simply by keeping a close eye on what’s going on in your existing home heating system. 

Monitor your system 24/7 (or let Hive do it for you!)

With Hive Heating Plus, you get a built-in Heating Efficiency Monitor that tracks your heating 24/7. If the system detects a problem or anything out of the ordinary, like your home taking too long to warm up, it will notify you via your Hive heating control app or by text  – so you can get things fixed quickly before they become serious.

Hive can monitor your system for you.
