Turn down the thermostat and stay warm with Stoov
With a lovely heated cushion against you, you can easily turn down the heating and reduce your energy costs. If you turn down the thermostat one degree and use a Stoov, you can easily save over £130 as an average household in the UK on an annual basis. Better for your wallet and, thanks to the reduced CO2 emissions, also better for the environment! A heated cushion or blanket alone won't solve the climate problem, of course, but it does help.
The cost of your gas consumption
An average household in the UK consists of 2.36 people and consumes about 1.035 m³ of gas per year, which costs about £1.344. So for one average person, this is almost 440 m³ and £570. If you turn the thermostat down one degree by default, you already save 7% on those costs! That's over £134 as an average household on your energy bill (on an annual basis).
The running costs of your Stoov
So what does it cost to use your Stoov? The regular battery consumes 30 wH to recharge, with current energy prices that works out at about 1 penny per charge. If you charge your pillow or blanket once every day, it will cost an average of £3,72 per year. With the large battery, this averages £6,83 a year.
With the thermostat one degree lower and a Stoov to keep you warm, you already save £130,28 a year (£134 - 3,72 - based on a normal battery, which you charge once a day).
