PECT team help launch free home efficiency service in Fenland


Heat Pumps for Friday Bridge is a new, free service that, in partnership with the Cambridge County Council and Fenland County Council, is offering residents of Friday Bridge advice and support to help them improve the efficiency of their home heating systems and reduce greenhouse gas emissions by installing a heat pump.

A launch event for the service took place at Dottie’s Tea Room at the Chequers Inn on Tuesday 8th August, where  residents of Friday Bridge who are interested in reducing greenhouse gas emissions, saving energy or future-proofing their homes were invited to drop into the launch event at a time that suits them.

During the event, there were heat pump experts, council officers and the Heat Pumps for Friday Bridge team on hand to talk about the service and how it may help Friday Bridge residents improve the energy efficiency of their homes.

Eligible Friday Bridge residents will have the opportunity to secure a free home assessment (worth over £500) which will show whether a heat pump is a good option for them; and learn how they can obtain a £5,000 contribution towards the cost of a heat pump, a technology that can heat homes far more efficiently than a gas boiler or storage heater. The home assessment will confirm whether a heat pump will save on your energy bills as, although heat pumps are much more efficient than boilers, they use electricity, which is more expensive than gas.

At the event, there will be plenty of opportunities to ask questions about this exciting project and understand how heat pumps and home energy efficiency upgrades could be beneficial.
