We are undertaking energy assessments on all our stock to be able to plan works to reduce the effect of climate change, reduce tenants’ fuel bills and improve the air quality in all our homes.
This takes significant organisation and resource, and like many housing providers, we are currently in the planning stages for this initiative. We will notify residents of our plans as soon as we are able.
We have recently submitted a bid for grant funding and in the event that we are successful, we will be undertaking works on around 250 homes over the next two years.
This is allocated to some of our homes that are hard to heat and located in areas that contain the highest proportion of deprivation and fuel poverty.
This is, of course, just the start and we have a target to carry out energy improvement works on all our older stock by 2030.
In the meantime, if you believe you do live in a home that is hard to heat then you may be eligible for a free energy-saving pack that we can send to you for you to fit yourself. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to see if you are eligible or for more information.
We are working with Redflek to install reflective sheets on radiators in eligible properties. If your property is not eligible for Barnet Homes’ work, you can still purchase Radflek products with a 20% discount by visiting radflek.com/shop and entering the code BARNET20 at the checkout.
