Our home is a 1960s midterrace, 2bed. We have been approaching and implementing a staged retrofit since 2009, doing work when we have available funds. The measures we have implemented are making a real change to energy savings (money and carbon), so doing a retrofit over a period of time without an initial large lump sum of money is possible.

Improvements to Lorenza and Paul's home include:

  • Roof fully insulated (2010)
  • New highly efficient Worcester combi boiler (installed 2009)
  • Cavity insulation with Manchester City Council scheme (2010)
  • Rigid Insulation behind external wall timber panelling, front and back (2010)
  • FSC insulated external doors (2014)
  • FSC timber triple glazed windows, tilt and turn (2014)
  • Conscious change and monitoring of occupants’ behaviour
