Tenants of Fife Housing Group are set to benefit from cavity and loft insulation work following the completion of a contract by Everwarm.
Having commenced in July 2017, with completion in October 2017, the contract saw Everwarm carry out Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) on all properties included within the contract to determine suitability and eligibility prior to works commencing. As a result, 55 cavity wall insulation installations were carried out, together with 51 loft insulation installations.
Scott Paton, Everwarm operations director, said: “We’re delighted to help Fife Housing Group achieve their Energy Efficiency Standard for Social Housing (EESSH) targets and provide affordable warmth within their communities. All installations were British Board of Agrément (BBA) approved and completed to PAS2030 standards, giving Fife Housing Group and its residents further peace of mind.
“The feedback we’ve had from residents is that they’re already realising the benefits of a warmer home. We’re delighted to have had such a positive impact on Fife’s communities and look forward to working with Fife Housing Group to expand their energy efficiency programme across the region.”
Fife Housing Group contract officer, David Todd, said: “Getting the properties insulated has increased their Standard Assessment Procedure (SAP) ratings and the overall EESSH score across our housing stock. This will also benefit the tenants going forward as they should see a reduction in both their fuel bills and carbon emissions but, most importantly, experience a much warmer home.”
