Putting consumers in control for affordable warmth
By simply turning the heating off for a portion of time every hour, consumers can reduce their energy consumption and save money on bills without (and here’s the crucial bit) feeling any difference in temperature. The Chop-Cloc is a unique heating control device that helps householders save up to 30% on their heating bills without noticing any difference in temperature.
Having the heating off from anywhere between 15 and 45 minutes an hour (depending on how cold it is) really doesn’t make any difference to how warm you feel in the room. Carpets, walls, sofas, even other people get ‘charged up’ with heat energy from the radiators and continue to release that heat even if the heating is switched off (or Chopped) for a period of time.
People in their homes can’t do anything about global energy prices, what they can do is look at their own energy use. Low cost solutions with low payback periods are really important and have a significant role to play in helping people reduce their energy consumption.

Chop-Cloc puts you back in control
Chopping can save householders up to 30% on their heating bills, depending on the temperature outside and how warm they like their home. The point is that the consumer gets to choose how much they save without ever having to be uncomfortable. It’s a pretty simple idea that might just mean an end to putting paying the bills above a comfortable home.
It’s been very easy to use; to be honest you forget it’s there. In terms of the savings, I can see how much it’s gone down. Compared to what I usually use it’s about 20% down, which is a fantastic saving for me. I’m so happy with it.
