This Victorian semi has been retrofitted to deomstrate the energy saving potential of simple, effective improvements.

Sarah and Charlie have reduced the carbon emissions of this house by 85% by installing insulation to walls, floors and roof, triple glazing and draught proofing the sash windows and fitting a heating system that combines solar thermal with a log burning biomass boiler. Sustainable materials have been a priority, including the most durable and eventually recyclable kitchen they could design.

Energy efficiency measures installed:

  • draught proofing
  • external wall insulation, internal wall insulation, floor insulation
  • new triple glazed / draught proofed sashes / secondary glazing
  • low energy lighting systems and electrical appliances
  • renewable heating - biomass log burner / solar thermal
  • sustainable building materials used

 

Sarah and Charlie think you should visit their home because:
We have lots of practical suggestions for insulating an old property, with measures installed over the last decade. We want to encourage as many visitors as possible!
