Most people will be aware that the cost of fuel has risen dramatically over the last few years, and although suppliers have recently published price reductions it is widely accepted that the high price of fuel is likely to be here to stay.
Connect Housing has increased the efficiency of its properties with a cavity wall and loft top-up insulation programme wherever possible. We are also continuing to install high efficiency boilers into our properties, along with other ad-hoc measures. We hope to build on this success in the coming years by specifically targeting those homes that are the least efficient to ensure that all of our tenants have warm homes. The Yorkshire & Humber region is reporting high numbers of people experiencing fuel poverty, and for this reason working with tenants on Affordable Warmth remains high on our agenda.
