Heat Pump - Better life for Blackpool man
A disabled Blackpool man’s life has been transformed thanks to a heat pump installed in his flat. Peter Lyttle, 51, lives in a flat in Blackpool, and suffers from osteo arthritis and psoriatic arthritis. He suffers from constant pain and has to frequently use a wheelchair and crutches to get around the flat. This means he requires constant heat as he particularly feels the cold due to his illness.
Mr Lyttle had conventional heat systems – a fan assisted electric fire and a portable oil heater - to try to keep hisself warm. But even when using an electric blanket he still suffered from the cold.
With help from Lancashire-based GB Energy and National Energy Action (NEA) - the leading fuel poverty charity – he has had an air source heat pump installed in his home.
He said: “This new heating system has made such a difference to my life. People are always commenting on how much warmer the home feels now. I suffer from constant pain and need to take medication for my condition, but there is no doubt that this heater has made me feel healthier. The home can actually sometimes get a bit too warm – a problem unheard of before this system was fitted.”
Fylde's Eco-home Future – Solar Power & Heat Pumps
PLANS to build 180 apartments in the centre of Lytham have been scrapped in favour of new eco-homes.
Kensington Developments had planned to build the huge apartment block on Ballam Road.
But the company has now shelved the scheme and unveiled new proposals for 57 homes which bosses say will be aimed at the "higher end housing market".
"Given the location and characteristics of the site, we believe it lends itself to the higher end housing market. The scheme has attracted considerable interest and represents a massive financial investment in sustainable new homes in Lytham and, of course, provides more service and construction related local jobs for local people."
The original plan was for 180 apartments in an eight-storey building, plus more than 50,000sq ft of offices in a six-storey building.
The buildings would use technology such as solar power, thermal energy and specially designed heat pumps.
