Tinytags monitor energy performance in new and refurbished buildings to help provide essential data concerning the success of energy saving initiatives and technologies.
The Black Country Housing Group is a housing association that
serves local communities in Birmingham and the Black Country,
providing affordable housing for rent, new homes for sale and a
diverse range of specialist local services.
Richard Baines, the Group's Director of Sustainable Development,
provides environmental consultancy services in-house and also to
external fee-paying clients. Richard has been using Tinytags for
many years as part of this service, to help evaluate the
performance of energy saving measures. The energy performance of
new or modified buildings is monitored to establish the value of
new technologies. Monitoring is an essential tool in the evaluation
of innovations which have to meet stated performance

relative humidity loggers are deployed, and the recorded data
is analysed to establish whether performance is in line with
expectations, or to help identify unexpected performance (better or
worse). Improvements can be publicised, whilst any problems are
identified, investigated and solved.
Richard chose Tinytags because they are stand-alone and
unobtrusive in occupied dwellings. He adds, "Previous products from
other suppliers proved ineffective. Over several decades now, the
Tinytag brand has proved to be bullet-proof!"
