Council homes in Cambridge are set to undergo energy efficiency overhaul
Council homes in Cambridge are set to go through a massive overhaul designed to make them more energy efficient on the long term, a news report on the matter has revealed.
The actual improvement work will be carried out by Kier, and will involve boiler and roof replacements. The company, who has received consistently positive customer feedback for the work carried out so far, with customer satisfaction figures above 90 percent, is set to carry out boiler and roof replacements to 300 council-owned properties across the city.
The improvements are a part of planned works carried out by the Council’s Estates & Facilities department and will help protect families from falling into fuel poverty, a serious problem affecting millions of households in the UK. Nevertheless, Cambridge has a slightly lower than average incidence of fuel poverty at 14.5%, where more than one in seven households suffer fuel poverty.
Beside roof and boiler replacements, another energy saving measure that can significantly lower one’s bills is represented by the implementation of a Building Energy Management System such as HeatingSave.
The HeatingSave system allows home owners to cut energy bills by up to an impressive 30%+. It is built around the idea of optimizing the energy consumption levels within any area with the help of an advanced heat-loss algorithm that creates a specific profile for any building and based on that, switches heating on later if its warm and off earlier if its cold.
