Nov 2020 Update
- Due to covid this project is now delayed until Spring 2021.
- If you have received a letter asking if you want to participate please note sign-up is now delayed but you can still call to express interest in participating when the time comes & we will make a note of this.
What is Airoom?
The project involves the installation of a smart air ventilation product. This product replaces traditional vents, which are open at all times, with a smart vent which opens and closes according to local conditions. This is expected to reduce the u-value and therefore lower energy bills and provide improved comfort through draft reduction.
More on the product on AirEx, the manufacture’s, website here.

About the project?
- After receiving a letter, call or knock on the door someone from the project team will explain the project and ask you if you would like to participate.
- Then a short survey is needed to make sure your property is suitable
- If your property is suitable to take part, an install date will be booked in via the installer
- Once installed another part of the project team will then drop off monitoring equipment so they can check how much energy the product saves of the 6 month monitoring period
- At the end of the monitoring phase, the project team will pick up the monitoring equipment
- Then you received a voucher to thank you for taking part
