South Lakes Housing’s (SLH) Warmer Greener Homes initiative is continuing to gather pace with local customers being contacted about potential home improvements designed to help residents live better by making homes warmer, reduce household bills and minimising the impact our homes have on the environment.  

Partly funded by the government’s Social Housing Decarbonisation Fund (SHDF), SLH has been carrying out energy assessments as part of its plan to improve the energy efficiency of over 900 South Lakes Housing homes by Mar 2025, so it can understand how efficient they are and what upgrades they might need.  

The Warmer Greener Homes initiative is a key part of SLH’s Business Strategy which aims for all its homes to achieve EPC ‘C’ rating by 2025, five years earlier than the Government imposed target and is a fundamental milestone SLH’s journey to ‘net zero’  by 2050.   

Warmer Greener Homes

In order make the energy upgrade process as easy as possible, SLH are working with a specialist company called Dyson Energy Services (Dyson). If a customer’s home is selected, Dyson will carry out an energy assessment of the customer’s home, which will take around two hours. This will be done by a suitably qualified and security-vetted assessor.

Once the assessment is completed, we will know the energy rating (EPC) of the home, and how to best maximise its efficiency to meet new Government standards.

Joanne Whitaker, Resident Liaison Partner at SLH said, “I’m really excited to be working with our residents to make these positive improvements to their homes.”
