The two companies say its renewables package Energy4Life offers social housing providers with a total low carbon heating solution that includes all related equipment and materials.

Daikin UK will supply its Altherma air source heat pump for installation in social housing units throughout the UK. Altherma provides high efficiency heating and domestic hot water in residential properties and is part of Energy4Life, the green heating package from construction materials supplier Wolseley.

Wolseley and Daikin UK will work together on contractor suitability, training, project planning, equipment spares and logistics,as well as the supply of the Altherma unit.

Energy4Life is designed to meet the needs of local authorities and their partners, including housing associations, local authorities and ALMOs, concerned with the retro fit and new build developments of the UK's public housing estate.

Wolseley offer social housing providers a total low carbon heating solution that includes all related equipment and materials. This means they can save money and time because they do not have to source individual installers and suppliers.

The air source heat pump technology extracts heat from the air and upgrades it to heat water which can be pumped to underfloor heating or radiators.

Wilby Meadows, Wolseley's public sector director said: 'The Altherma air source heat pump provides energy efficiencies of up to five times more than a traditional heating system, and we are confident that Daikin's advanced technology, together with Wolseley's expertise in this sector, will be a welcome development for local authorities and housing associations looking for sustainable development.'

'This initiative also demonstrates Wolseley's commitment to sustainability, as the system, with its low surface temperature heat emitters, meets the accommodation requirements of young and elderly alike and will help to reduce fuel poverty'.

'We believe Energy4Life is a pioneering arrangement that will provide the public sector with a truly cost-effective and sustainable solution that is a major step towards the zero carbon goal and will become the quality benchmark for private housing to follow,' said Scott Dorrall, new business development director for Daikin UK.
