Merrow Street Heating Upgrade

Posted on the 13th April 2017

Residents at Merrow Street are delighted by the upgrade of the night storage heating system.  “It’s like the Bahamas in my house” says Ms Palmer now that the new gas central heating is installed.

Combination boilers supplying hot water on demand have eliminated the need for cold water storage tanks and hot water cylinders. The cupboards where these were stored has since been decorated and fitted with slatted shelves and a small radiator providing residents with a new airing cupboard facility.

We have had a chance to catch up with Ms Rebekah Duff to ask what this upgrade means for her.

“There are so many great things I could say about the work, but the best part is no more waiting for hot water! Hot water on demand, yay! It makes bath times so much easier for me and my two daughters, with nice warm towels waiting on the radiator when we get out. 

I could not be happier with it all, the water pressure is so much better now. My home is nice and toasty; my washing dries quickly next to the radiators and my lovely new airing cupboard means I have been able to free up space in my bedroom.  I haven’t received a gas bill yet so it’s difficult to comment on the cost but my electricity costs have halved.

The contractors were helpful and friendly too.  There was nothing that was too much trouble for them, especially Peter the Site Supervisor.”

We are thrilled with the positive feedback and thank residents for their patience during the upgrade works.

“One of the best things that Keniston have done and this comes from the heart” Mr & Mrs Techie-Afful.
