North Yorkshire County Council has secured funding through National Grid’s Warm Homes Fund to help people living in Hambleton to reduce their energy bills and transform their home heating.

Homeowners and tenants who currently use inefficient storage heaters, room heaters or solid fuel heating, could get a new, fully funded renewable heating system installed in their home at no cost to themselves.

The County Council was successful in securing funding through the Warm Homes Fund, with support from Ryedale District Council, Scarborough Borough Council, Richmondshire District Council and Hambleton District Council.  Residents living away from the gas network, looking to reduce their heating costs whilst enjoying a warm home, are being encouraged to consider this opportunity.

The renewable heating scheme aims to install 200 renewable heating systems in homes across the four authorities.  At the heart of the system is an air source heat pump, which typically provides more than three times the heat for each unit of electricity used to power it. This heat is delivered into the home via new radiators and a hot water system.

The scheme is targeting properties that do not have an existing gas, oil or LPG central heating system. Householder eligibility criteria will also be taken into consideration as part of the qualification process.

Cllr Stephen Watson, portfolio holder for Environmental Health, Hambleton District Council said:  “We are delighted to announce this new renewable heating scheme which gives  our more vulnerable residents in Hambleton the opportunity to upgrade their homes to the latest low carbon heating technology for free.  The scheme sees heat delivered into the home via new radiators and  hot water system.

“It will not only help eligible residents reduce their fuel bills but improve the energy efficiency of properties in North Yorkshire.”

Communitas Energy (CE) is managing the scheme on behalf of the Councils. To make an enquiry, please contact CE through its  website www.ce-cic.org.uk/north-yorkshire-heat-pump-project or by calling 0113 4862941.
