Resident heating woes resolved thanks to new heating system

We have been working with South Western Housing Society (SWHS) as a preferred heating installer and maintenance contractor since 2015.

When a major problem came about with the heating system in Meadow View, a group of properties in Highbridge, our team was on hand and happy to help.

Residents at Meadow View faced problems with an inefficient heating system that included high energy bills meaning that, at times, they could not have the heating on which was not ideal, particularly during the colder months and SWHS wanted an urgent solution.

Our renewable technical manager, Richard Blackmore, was called in to assess the properties found flaws that were causing the problems and made a recommendation on how best to fix it.

The solution was to replace the ineffective 12kw heat pump with a 5kw one with a cylinder. The existing air to water heat pumps and hot water cylinders were replaced with Mitsubishi Ecodan pumps, cylinders and associated controls.

The work commenced with a test using two houses before completing the scope of work across 13 properties within ten weeks.

The upgraded cost-effective systems considerably improved the energy efficiency enabling the residents to have heating that doesn’t break the bank and resulted in reduced running costs of 30% and overall a much better quality of life for all.

Tenant feedback to SWHS has proved to be some of the most positive comments the Society have ever received and the work featured in their tenant’s magazine.

All in another day’s work for the Gregor team in keeping residents warm & cosy.
