HEAT PUMPS FOR HOUSING DEVELOPMENTS

Housing Associations are facing lot of pressure to follow and adhere to Government legislation to reduce the UK’s emissions, whilst also keeping residents safe and happy.

With Housing Association tenants often being on a low income – sometimes faced with “food or warmth” dilemmas (especially in winter) – being energy efficient is important and a renewable energy system is a huge benefit for tenants with lower fuel bills and a more reliable heating and hot water system all year around.

It also eradicates the risk of broken gas boilers, no heating or hot water, waiting in line for engineer visits etc.

For any Housing Association / Social Housing project, changing to renewable energy technology such as ground source or air source heat pumps means overall energy consumption is reduced and this technology assists in meeting Government demands for more sustainable homes.

Heat pump systems is a safe and compliant match for social housing, particularly high-rise buildings and the opportunity to replace gas combi boilers. Heat pumps use non-flammable technology, so they are a safer alternative to fossil fuels and flammable refrigerants.

Control

Replacing heating systems like direct electric and storage heaters offers a level of control that residents will have wanted, and heat pumps will also reduce running costs and save money on electricity bills due to the huge improvement in efficiency.

Ensuring tenants understand the reasoning behind a change in their heating – whether a replacement of an existing heating system or a brand new development – is an important part of the process and Severn Valley Renewables are happy to be involved in educating tenants to the benefits of switching to a renewable energy system.

Savings for Tenants

Studies and case studies have shown that tenant fuel bills are expected to reduce by 30-50% a year, with savings around £150 for bedsits and £500 for houses.
