1930s end of terrace house with

  • New external wall insulation
  • Triple glazed windows
  • Roof insulation
  • Continuous ventilation and PVs
  • High spec heating
  • Low-cost improvements.

Natural and low embodied energy materials have been used where appropriate, such as timber fibre insulation for the external wall insulation. Having completed the work to the fabric of the house, we are now finishing internal alterations. The high levels of insulation avoid the need for central heating and infrared heating will be used instead combined with appropriate clothing. The PVs will heat the water in a cylinder with an electric top up immersion heater. The house appliances, e.g. washing machine, cooking, vacuuming will be used when the PVs are generating electricity.
