My main drive has always been a desire to reduce Carbon but since having a family the need to protect us from ever rising energy bills has become much more important.
The house is part of a development of 300 properties built in 1983/4 by Fairview homes on part of the old West Ruislip RAF depot. The RAF depot was constructed as a storage depot for the Army Flying Core prior to the formation of the RAF. The homes were built to a very high insulation standard for 1984 with filled cavity and loft insulation.
The main changes have been a new boiler and renewable technologies that allow us to generate electricity and heat our water.
Apart from the lovely feeling of knowing your home is generating its own energy the main advantage has been lower bills and protection from ever rising bills.
The renewable technologies are my favourite as this is a new technology that you can see working through the efergy meter. It is a great feeling knowing electricity is going out the door.
Waiting for the first full years readings to see what we have generated and saved.
