Why are the works being done?
The heating and hot water system is getting old, and needs to be updated to make sure it works reliably in future.
What works are taking place?
Weedington Estate requires the replacement of the following:
- Heating and hot water pipes going to each home and inside each home pipework.
- The radiators and heating controls inside each home, and some of the equipment in the boiler.
The boilers located in Ashdown Crescent boiler house will remain but the rest of your boiler house plant will be renewed to meet current standards and the requirements of your new energy efficient heating system.
The gas meter will be relocated from the boiler house to outside and the boiler flues will be renewed as part of the works.
Renewal of all plant within the block sub-plant rooms including block level heat meters.
Renewal of all distribution pipework within the blocks to your individual homes.
HIU’s (Heating Interface Unit) will be installed in each property which will include heat meters and individual controls to allow you complete control of your heating and hot water use.
