Home heat sector hots up as retail giant joins

Sainsbury's is venturing into the home heating market with the launch of a boiler installation and support service.

The offering will be available in its 13 stores across Northern Ireland and will be operated in partnership with Carillion Energy Services.

"We believe that as a consequence of us entering it, the home heating market will grow significantly," Justin James, head of new business development said.

"Sainsbury's will stimulate greater awareness for home energy efficiency and provide a helping hand every step of the way for those interested in renewing their oil boiler or changing to gas.

"Ultimately we want to offer our customers a service which will save them money."
