Leaflet on TRV & balancing of heating systems - June 2018

AVR, the Italian valve and fitting manufacturers’ association, published a leaflet on thermostatic valves and balancing of heating systems.

This leaflet highlights how effective equipment can help protect the environment and reduce energy consumption by increasing system efficiency. These technologies are highly advanced but simple to use. They have a short payback period, yet will continue to deliver benefits for the entire lifetime of the system.
