A midterraced property build around 1900, this home has seen a range of improvements, most recently the installation of external wall insulation, with the help of a Green Deal Home Improvement grant.  Insulation is used extensively throughout the property, with a loft conversion providing internal insulation of the roof and walls. Internal wall and underfloor insulation are also on view.

Use of a combi condensing boiler, low energy bulbs and a woodburning stove. Mono-crystalline solar PV panel with 'solar edge' technology have been installed to lower the carbon footprint of the home.

Bus time: 83A (except Sundays) second stop on Rustlings road, or frequent buses on Ecclesall Road (Rustlings Road stop)

The householder comments:

"I have had some good insulation work done, as well as some very bad. My experience is that it is difficult to find builders who know how to do a thorough job (eg taking care not to leave cold bridging, and sealing against possible condensation), and who make the effort. Also, external wall insulation is relatively rare at the moment, so beware of builders who have not come across it before and don't know how to treat it when their work affects it. I recommend learning what to look out for before work is done (or getting an adviser) so that you can make sure it is being done properly. My house is generally a lot warmer now, for which I am thankful, but it has been a stressful time having it done (including a neighbour objecting)"
