What visitors are saying

“Very exciting project! Inspired to "green" our home even more!”

"Inspirational … many design ideas for Uni work."

Personal story:

I have had experience with energy conscious houses in various forms over the past 20 years. A background in surveying and estate agency together with experience in property planning and the renovation business have given me a good level of background knowledge for retrofitting my own home.

Motivations:

I have a keen interest in energy savings and keeping down energy costs.

Property background:

This 6 bedroom, detached house was built in 1965 using Bath stone. I purchased the property 6 years ago.

Key changes made:

One of the main changes to the property is that it has been extensively insulated with external and cavity wall insulation, as well as floor, ceiling, loft and roof insulation. Double glazing has also been installed throughout the house. A whole house heat recovery system and energy management system increase the energy efficiency of the property, along with renewable energy sources including an air source heat pump, PV and solar thermal.

Measures installed in detail:

  • Dryvit 80 mm external and cavity wall insulation
  • Atmos condensing gas boiler for back up only
  • Oak framed Argon filled double glazing throughout
  • 150 mm celotex floor insulation
  • Air Source Heat Pump
  • 300 mm loft insulation
  • All new energy rated appliances
  • Low energy lighting throughout
  • Whole house heat recovery system
  • TLX roof insulation
  • 2.2 kWp Solar PV system
  • 8 sqm Solar thermal panels
