Roadshow explains renewable heat pump benefits to social housing providers

Mitsubishi Electric has announced a programme of 13 regional seminars targeting housing associations, local authorities, or anyone responsible for hitting renewable targets in the social housing sector. 

The free, half-day events will help social housing providers understand the benefits that modern air source heat pumps can offer in providing low carbon heating and helping combat fuel poverty.

The roadshow will start on 24thOctober in Norwich and end on 28thNovember in Sheffield, taking in Exeter, Cardiff, Swindon, Hatfield, Inverness, Livingston, Chester, Birmingham, Reigate, Central London and Durham in between. 

“We’ve seen thousands of heat pumps installed in Housing Associations properties over the past five years, so we know the benefits that they can bring to both landlords and tenants in terms of lower running costs and emissions,” explains Graham Temple, Marketing Communications Manager.

The seminars will look at the impact the Renewable Heat Incentive is likely to have on the social housing sector, look at the application and advantages of the Ecodan® range of heat pumps and focus on how to engage tenants in the process.  In addition, the company will release details of its new finance proposition and also look at examples where heat pumps are being used to supply community heating.

The performance of the market-leading Ecodan was independently verified in a recent report by the Energy Saving Trust, which showed that the heat pumps demonstrated average estimated annual operating cost savings of 8% over a gas condensing boiler, 36% over an oil condensing boiler and 67% over a direct electric heating system.   

“These seminars are ideal for social housing providers who want to know more about the technology and will include guest speakers from Housing Associations who will be able to speak from personal experiences,” adds Temple.

Mitsubishi Electric has prepared detailed case studies with key regional partners for the seminars to highlight the important issues facing the social housing sector and identify the important role that renewable heating can play in engaging tenants and helping reduce both maintenance and running costs.

Also at the events will be the dedicated Ecodan display van, which allows visitors to see the range of different heating solutions available.

“We have put together an informative programme that will help increase understanding in the sector and will demonstrate how social housing providers can answer the legislative challenges they face whilst providing low cost, renewable heating for tenants,” ends Temple.
