Centrica: Further reading

Sanctuary Housing has launched a low carbon heating scheme in partnership with Centrica, to improve the energy efficiency of some of its housing.

Between now and the end of October, nearly 600 properties across the North, North West, Midlands, East and South West will have their existing heating systems replaced with low carbon alternatives.

Each property will be fitted with an air source heat pump - complete with a smart cylinder, intelligent heating control, new radiators and pipework.

The exact specification will be tailored to suit a variety of one, two, three and four-bedroom homes, with the aim of bringing them all up to an EPC rating of C or above.

The project is being funded by Sanctuary, the Renewable Heat Incentive and the Warm Homes Fund.

The smart cylinder in each property features full onboard monitoring, to measure the system's performance and demonstrate that the requirements for funding are being met.
