Hungerford Hub reaches another green milestone in its bid to become more sustainable

Hungerford Hub goes Green

Last month Hungerford Hub said goodbye to its old gas boiler and, thanks to the support of John Downe from HEAT (Hungerford Environmental Action Team), has now installed a much more energy-efficient Air Source Heat Pump.

This technology is expected to reduce the building’s heating related emissions by two thirds (about 2.5 tonnes) of CO2 per year. The purchase was funded by a government grant from the Boiler Upgrade Scheme, Hungerford Town Council and Greenham Trust, as part of the Hub’s pledge to reduce its carbon emissions.

Over the past two years the Hub has also improved its energy efficiency by having a smart zoned thermostatic control system installed and upgrading to LED lights throughout.

The Hub is keen to support others looking to make similar changes. They invite any member of the community who would find their experience of installing and using the heat pump useful, to pop in for a chat on a Tuesday or Wednesday morning, or email
