End of study briefing report for Warm Homes for Health project

Dr Nathan Bray and Professor Rhiannon Tudor Edwards from the Centre for Health Economics and Medicines Evaluation (CHEME) Public Health Stream, Bangor University, collaborated with Gentoo housing association and Nottingham City Homes to evaluate the costs and outcomes associated with social housing improvements, such as new boilers and double glazed windows; the project was titled Warm Homes for Health and ended in January 2016.

The results from the Warm Homes for Health project indicate that retrofitting of new energy efficient combi boilers and double-glazed windows in social housing may be an effective means of reducing fuel poverty, improving health status, improving personal well-being and reducing NHS service use costs.

To find out more information about the project and findings please see the end of study briefing report here.

The project team aim to publish a peer reviewed journal article of the findings later this year. To discuss any aspect of the project please contact Dr Nathan Bray (n.bray@bangor.ac.uk, 01248 382477). For future updates please see cheme.bangor.ac.uk, or follow CHEME on twitter @CHEMEBangor
