Nick and Nicola are methodically refurbishing their 1930s semi and are about two thirds finished. So far, they have installed both solar thermal hot water and 1.5kW of solar PV, as well as taking advantage of existing CERT support to have the cavity walls and loft insulated. The woodburning stove is sited centrally to distribute near carbon-free heating throughout the house and help minimise gas use. Future plans are to fit secondary glazing over the high loss Crittall windows and to insulate the ground floor from below whilst the building work is going on.
