    Chopping: a simple solution to a complex problem.

In an age of sophisticated solutions, we’ve got used to thinking something is only working when it’s on. Here at The Chopping Company, we know that sometimes you are better off.
Chopping simply means regularly switching systems off for short periods of time without affecting their operation. The off period makes no difference to performance but makes a big difference in saving energy and reducing costs.
Our first product is the Chop-Cloc, a simple retrofit device that saves up to 30% on home heating bills. It works by switching the heating off for 15 to 45 minute in each hour to take advantage of radiant heat from the building fabric and contents. 
Our mission is to make Chopping possible wherever we can; saving people money, reducing consumption and creating a real revolution in efficiency.

Per year, Chopping saves the average household:

500 kg

CO2e emissions

1800 kWh

of natural gas


in energy bills
