Discovering Leicester: Central Heating and Its Impact on Property Decisions

In Leicester, a city renowned for its historical roots and vibrant community, a surprising discovery has been made regarding the state of modern living amenities, particularly central heating. 

An insightful heat map, using data from the Office for National Statistics and the Census, it reveals the percentage of homes across various parts of Leicester that lack central heating systems.

In this day and age, it’s almost taken for granted that homes should come equipped with central heating. 

However, the data illustrates a different story for certain areas of Leicester. While many areas, shown in lighter green, boast nearly universal coverage of central heating, there are noticeable pockets, depicted in varying shades of blue, where up to 10% of properties do not have central heating. Instead, residents may rely on alternatives like storage heaters, standalone bottle gas heaters, or other forms of non-central heating systems.

This variation within Leicester can significantly influence decisions for homebuyers, homeowners, and landlords. For homebuyers, understanding the prevalence of central heating can guide their purchasing decisions, aligning their choices with their comfort and lifestyle needs. Homeowners might see this as an opportunity or a reminder to upgrade their systems to enhance their property value and living conditions.

Leicester Landlords, in particular, could find this data crucial for making informed investments and improvements to their properties. Ensuring rental properties are equipped with central heating could not only increase rental appeal and value but also reduce tenant turnover and maintenance issues associated with less efficient heating systems.

This heatmap of Leicester serves as a powerful tool for those involved in the local property market. It highlights a critical aspect of property amenities that could be overlooked yet is vital for comfort and value.
