Calling all our tenants - get free, independent, heating advice.
Thanks to a partnership with local charity Bryson Energy we are able to offer tenants the opportunity to learn hints and tips which will help reduce fuel bills and improve their home’s warmth and comfort.
We are the Home Energy Conservation Authority for Northern Ireland and are responsible for improving energy efficiency in all housing. Heatsmart with Bryson Energy is just one initiative which helps this.
Our Heatsmart programme, with Bryson Energy, helps our tenants make the best use of their heating system. By understanding the controls they can maximise heating whilst minimising the cost.
Causeway Area Manager, Brendan Doherty, explained:
“Over the last year we have installed nearly 7,000 new heating systems in tenant’s homes. As we have a rolling programme of heating replacement this figure will continue to grow and Heatsmart is there to help tenants benefit fully from their new more efficient systems.
“Bryson Energy’s Heatsmart representative will be able to offer other home energy tips which will help reduce fuel bills. We’re keen to eradicate fuel poverty in Northern Ireland and this scheme is just one good example of the range of activities the Housing Executive is undertaking to achieve this.”
Over 8,000 Heatsmart visits have been made in the past year. If you are one of our tenants who would like to save money and help the environment then book a Heatsmart visit by calling Bryson Energy’s advice line on freephone: 0800 142 2865.
