Helping to reduce heating costs for housing tenants in Gateshead is the installation of Vaillant ecoTEC condensing boilers

Vaillant is working closely with The Gateshead Housing Company to ­help this social-housing provider improve the energy efficiency of its housing stock as part of Decent Homes initiative. Vaillant is supplying high-efficiency condensing ecoTEC boilers to help reduce heating costs. Gateshead housing company currently has over 21 000 properties, with about 19 000 of them having gas-fired central-heating systems.

Gary Stirling, gas services manager with Gateshead Housing Company, said, ‘We realised that any of our tenants, including those with young children or the elderly, believed that they could not afford to heat their homes using inefficient products. As a result, we fitted high-efficiency Vaillant boilers wherever replacements or new installations were needed.’

Gateshead Housing Company has been working with tenants to improve energy efficiency across its entire housing stock since 2004 and aims to eradicate fuel poverty by 2102.
