This still growing project of 12 homes has taken the residents off use of solid fuel heating. each property has an air source heat pump located variously in old coal sheds or externally. Although the properties vary slightly the average annual heating and hot water bill is estimated at £5-600. this takes into account the fact that the residents are generally older and run their heating at above typical temperatures an patterns.
In removing the solid fuel systems new radiator based systems were installed in each property. this has ensured that they are ideally suited to air source heat pumps and that each room correctly specified.
The Landlord was mindful that by 2016 they will need to comply with the new directive that all let properties must have an EPC of E or above. Given the nature of the building types on these houses an air source heat pump with the carbon savings that it offers has allowed them to meat these obligations.
The systems have already run on days where the average temperature was below freezing and the residents have benefited from both warm homes and not needing to bring coal in.
