Enfield Council is looking to replace the existing oil-fired heating system to flats, with a communal ground source heating system.
The existing heating, installed in 1991, is approaching the end of its design life expectancy. This means that soon it won’t be cost effective to keep the existing service in operation.
The project will comprise of ground source boreholes within adjacent land, and trenching up to the blocks for buried heating services. The heating pipework will then be distributed into the individual flats within cupboards to provide heating and hot water. Wall mounted radiators will be fitted in each room to provide heating. The new heating system will be controlled within the flats by a heat pump, which works off the leaseholder’s electric power supply.
The main benefits of a ground source heat pump installation are that it’s a renewable source of energy, and provides lower cost heating bills.
For further information view the Pruden Close Communal Heating Replacement booklet (PDF).

We appreciate that many residents may be anxious about people working in communal areas and allowing contractors to enter their homes during the ongoing pandemic.
However, the government is allowing construction and manufacturing sectors to continue, with safety controls in place, during the current lockdown period.
The council and its contractors are complying fully with the government's COVID-19 guidance to allow us to safely deliver our major works programme and improvements to residents' homes.
You will be contacted on the morning of your appointment to confirm everyone at your home is still well. If you or anyone in your home is displaying any of the main symptoms of coronavirus, has had a positive COVID-19 test result or is self-isolating, please let the Resident Liaison Officer (RLO) know and we will reschedule the work for 14 days in the future.
On arrival, the contractors will show you their ID before entering and will ask that you adhere to social distancing guidance whilst they are in your home. Contractors will wear a mask as a precaution.
Before the contractor arrives, you must:
During this lockdown period, if you or anyone in your household is in the 'extremely vulnerable' category and are unhappy for contractors to enter the home to undertake works, please let us know. Contact the RLO team and we will defer your appointment (where we deem there not to be a significant risk) until after the lockdown period. You will be contacted to agree when works can be re-booked for completion.
If we are unable to access your home to complete works and you have not advised us that you are in the 'extremely vulnerable' category to allow us to reschedule as a priority, works will be deferred to the end of the programme. This could mean delays to works in your home of several months.
At the start of works to your block or estate, you will have received a letter from the council which details the contacts for your contract team. If you have lost this letter, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
