TECHNOLOGY which uses heat from the atmosphere, will help cut heating bills for some Great Yarmouth Community Housing tenants.
Air source heat pumps have been installed in seven homes in rural areas which have no access to a mains gas supply.
The pumps work by collecting heat from the outside air and moving it into the house, acting like a refrigerator in reverse. The systems use a renewable energy source which does not pollute the atmosphere and helps cut heating bills.
Brother and sister George and Dorothy Angel, of Thurne, are among the first recipients of the environmentally-friendly heating systems and they said: “It's lovely and warm and very quiet.”
