8:17am Saturday 16th June 2012 in Eco info
SEVEN council houses in York have been fitted with heating systems designed to cut their carbon footprint.
The City of York Council properties in Wenlock Gardens, Wheldrake, have had air source heat pumps installed to provide central heating, which is expected to save more than 700 tonnes of carbon over the next 25 years and reduce fuel bills.
They have also been fitted with double-glazed windows and cavity wall and loft insulation.
