NINES - Quantum heaters

9th December 2013

Tenants in around 60 Hjaltland properties are now taking advantage of their new Quantum heating systems.

The contractors have visited homes in Scalloway, Sandness, Bressay, Walls and Lerwick.

The works contract runs until the winter of 2014, and tenants should look out for letters to let them know when their property is scheduled to receive the works. These will arrive around three weeks prior to the start date and tenants will then be contacted by the contractor to arrange access.

Feedback from tenants who have received the heaters has been very positive so far, with plus points being ease of use, being more in control of their heating and a more modern design.

The new Quantum heaters offer a more controllable method of heating the home than traditional storage heaters. Their advanced controls provide an opportunity for energy savings.

They can be programmed to suit the users’ lifestyle and it is recommended that this is done to ensure the heaters are working efficiently.

The installer will leave instructions, and will be available to give tenants an induction.

Tenants can also receive extra help and support from the Association by contacting NINES development officer Louise Thomason at the office on 01595 694986 or at

For more information on using the heaters please see the Technical Advice section of this website.

"I was very impressed to find the Hjaltland workman there, much sooner than I anticipated. What your colleague has done is marvellous! The clients are delighted and I think that what he has achieved has much exceeded their expectations. The handrail is actually a lovely bit of work and really quite attractive!"

"We are very happy with our new kitchen, I felt that I should email to make comment on the quality of the work of the two joiners and the chap that fitted the tiles. All three gentlemen have done outstanding work, as well as being extremely courteous, they worked in a clean and tidy manner. I would appreciate it if you would pass on our thanks for their excellent work."
