MITSUBISHI ELECTRIC - TSG Building Services Fits Ecodan® To £9M Housing Project

TSG Building Services plc (TSG) has won a £9M contract to install Ecodan® air source heat pumps in over 800 homes in Oxfordshire. The heat pumps have been chosen to replace the electric storage heaters currently in use to offer residents more affordable heating and hot water.

"This contract award underlines our company’s ability to make a real impact in the rapidly developing market of environmental technologies,” said John Holloway, Contracts Director for TSG, responsible for the Renewable Energy sector of the company. “Our installers have all completed Mitsubishi Electric’s training programme and have built a high level of expertise in this area. Our engineers are also attending training in order to provide technical support.”

The contract has been awarded by Cottsway Housing Association, the largest local Registered Provider (RP) in the West Oxfordshire District.

Simon Thompson, Senior Surveyor for Cottsway said: “Fuel poverty is a real concern for us and a major issue for many of our tenants. The heating systems currently in use in these homes are inefficient and expensive to run. We wanted to replace them with a system that would provide a comfortable and efficient alternative for our tenants, but at a more affordable cost.

“Mitsubishi Electric’s Ecodan air source heat pumps meet the specifications laid down for the job. Replacing electric storage heaters with air source heat pumps will not only help lower our tenants’ energy bills, but will also help us to substantially reduce our carbon footprint for these homes.”

The project is set to run over a four year period and each install will take approximately five days to complete. TSG has begun site surveys to check the dwellings are properly insulated before installation work is carried out, helping to ensure that the Ecodans will perform at maximum efficiency.

Once installation is complete tenants will be shown how to operate the system and given an information pack. Should they require further assistance once the installers have left the site, an advisor will visit the property to assist if required.

“Operating the new system will require a change in mind-set for most tenants. In the past, the way they have saved money was to turn the heaters on only when absolutely necessary,” said Mr Holloway. “The Ecodan system is designed to run constantly at much lower temperatures providing a comfortable, even temperature throughout the house, using less energy, which in turn means lower energy bills.”
