About the Housing 21 project

Residents in a Housing 21 retirement community now have full control of their heating and hot water, plus the flexibility to choose their electricity supplier, and the ability to control the temperature of the flat to their own comfort levels.

Additionally, carbon emissions have drastically reduced, and a reduction in maintenance costs for the client, and running costs for the resident.
