Housing association must improve heating

Keen to improve the heating efficiency in its homes, Cottsway Housing Association in Oxfordshire were looking for an advanced heating system to suit.

They needed to find an efficient system that provides a good alternative to replace existing gas boilers, storage heaters and open fires. Their main objectives were to save money on energy bills, meet legislation and lessen the impact on the environment.

This three bedroomed terrace home, built in 1970, was amongst the first to be considered for refurbishment. Previously heated by a combination of inefficient, ineffective storage heaters and an open fire, the fuel and electricity bills were spiralling out of control. This home would benefit significantly from an improved means of heating. Alternative heating such as wood, solar power and biomass were discounted for being either insufficient or too high maintenance. A better solution was sought.

By using Ecodan to supply all the heating and hot water this property needs, running costs have been dramatically halved. An ideal replacement for the existing storage heaters and solid fuel fire, Ecodan is so much more efficient and effective to run in comparison.

Changing to Ecodan, has also cut this homes carbon footprint from 9 tonnes of carbon dioxideper annum, to just over 3 tonnes, a massive 65% welcome reduction! Able to use much less energy, the Ecodan perfectly matches the heat load, whilst significantly reducing energy bills and carbon dioxide emissions. Cottsway Housing Association are delighted with the savings delivered by the improved energy performance levels that Ecodan provides.
