MP Learns More About Latest Heating Technology

A HAMPSHIRE MP learned about the latest home heating technology when she visited a factory in her constituency.

Mims Davies, MP for Eastleigh, visited the Southampton headquarters of GDC Group, where she learned about the company’s ambitious growth plans and how its latest technologies are helping to lower fuel bills.

The MP was given a tour of the company’s headquarters, which includes a product showroom, training facilities and call centre.

She was introduced to products such as the Dimplex Quantum heating system, which has the potential to significantly reduce heating bills for electrically heated homes, the class-leading Dimplex A-Class air source heat pump and the Free-E energy management system which works with a homeowner’s solar PV kit to heat their hot water cylinder for free.

Ms Davies said: “It is very important we continue to tackle high energy costs alongside using the best ideas, technology and creative innovation in order to keep homes warm, cosy and affordable across the winter months.

Based within the Eastleigh constituency, the group employs around 200 people from the area.
