  •     A double glazed conservatory on the South side generating heat which is convected through the house even on quite dull days.
  •     Solar water heating
  •     Solar panel electricity generating and control system
  •     Double glazing of large Victorian sash windows and other windows.
  •     Re-slated roof insulated by patented adhesive foam system.
  •     Renewal of loose front door anchorage and seals making it really airtight

The householder has been a pioneer of renewable energy, and has created a wonderful living space that takes advantage of free heat from the sun.
