"Tenants are already feeling the benefits both in their homes and in their pockets. The association is meeting its priorities of supporting its tenants as well as contributing to meeting environmental targets"

The Challenge


Clydesdale Housing Association was set up in 1987 by a voluntary committee, with a mission to combat the poor condition of houses in Clydesdale, and the shortage of rented housing.

The Goal

The owners are looking for a replacement to their old inefficient electric storage heating that would reduce fuel costs for tenants, helping to lift them out of fuel poverty. 


The Requirements

Air Source Heat Pumps vs Quantum Storage Heating

During the survey process, it became obvious that the particular mix of properties being targeted were better suited to the installation of versatile air source heat pumps rather than Quantum storage heating as initially intended.
