There are many ways in which to bring comfort and reduced energy bills to your home. How do you decide which way to go and what motivates you to make that choice?

Alesia and her husband decided that solid wall insulation (SWI) was the right choice for them and after a lot of research, particularly to get the right amount of investment they decided to install it around the entire house, except for the front facia. The difference has been very noticeable and their level of home comfort has been worth the effort. They managed to get a lot of funding through Green Deal and while those options may not be available now, listening to Alesia on how they worked through the process, is detail well worth learning about if you are considering this insulation type.

If SWI is not your thing but you are considering an electric car, pop along and see how a charging post was installed here. This technology will become cheaper and more available so don’t buy another car yet until you have seen and learned more about electric cars and how cheap they are to run and how low on emissions they are – you may well be surprised.

Another electrical installation here is a solar PV set up. There are 6 panels generating 1.8 kW and as a result have led to the family switching their energy use from the evening to the daytime when their energy bill is free.

Visit here if you would like to understand more about your electricity options or you want a quiet few minutes in the beautiful simple low maintenance garden with its drip irrigation water system.
