EndoTherm For Schools
The team behind EndoTherm have joined forces with the international award programme Eco-Schools and signed up as an Energy Partner to help schools become more energy efficient, saving money and the environment.
Eco-Schools is a global initiative engaging millions of children across 64 different countries, making it the largest schools programme in the world. For more than 20 years Eco-Schools has been empowering children to drive change and improve their environmental awareness through the same simple seven-step process that has been used successfully across the world.
Heating is the largest utility cost in the majority of schools. On average a school spends £44 per pupil on heating in a single calendar year which accounts for around 60% of its total utility outlay. As the largest utility cost, it is also has the biggest potential to be reduced and to save school money whilst helping the UK achieve its ambitious carbon reduction targets.
Common practice to reduce heating bills is to turn down your thermostat but this is not practical in an education environment as schools have to adhere to the minimum classroom temperature requirements set by the Education Regulations for School Premises.

EndoTherm is an award winning central heating additive which is independently proven to reduce heating consumption by up to 15%. EndoTherm has recently won the 2016 CIBSE: Building Performance Awards, Energy Saving Product of the Year.
EndoTherm is installed into any water based heating system at a 1% concentration. With a quick easy install, zero maintenance and proven longevity, EndoTherm is an ideal solution to reduce the heating bills within your school.
EndoTherm is also 100% organic, this means the embodied carbon (carbon used to manufacture the chemical) is very low. A typical EndoTherm installation will offset this embodied carbon in just 1 day!
Immediately after the installation of EndoTherm the temperatures within the building increased. In the end, sufficient heat was coming from the overhead pipework that the radiators were all turned off.
Gas consumption was reduced by 20% (compensated for degree days) comparing the time period immediately before and after installation.
Case Study – Stowe School, Buckinghamshire
Two Eco-Schools have already seen the benefits of EndoTherm including Stowe School in Buckinghamshire. They tested EndoTherm in their swimming pool building (Air Handling Unit) as this was a major user of fuel. EndoTherm was installed in December 2015 and the fuel usage was compared with the same 3 months as the year before.
Overall the system reduced consumption by 21.9%. This was a saving of £635 which meant the initial investment was paid back within the trial period.
