Caption: Adjusting a thermostatic radiator valve (TRV). It is a relatively simple uncalibrated device in which the flow of water through a radiator varies with the expansion or contraction of a wax plug. They are used to control room temperatures according to choice and thus can promote energy efficiency. It is claimed that they reduce energy bills and CO2emissions. Here the thermostat is being set to its minimum setting to save costs. Cold housing can increase the risk of hypothermia It can lead to condensation and the growth of mould increasing the risk of hypothermia, respiratory illness, and heart attacks and strokes as a low temperature increases blood pressure. Condensation and a damp could lead to greater costs in the long term.
