Janet has very bravely embarked on a major programme to overhaul her house, much of which she is doing herself.  It’s a big task but, as a pensioner, she is determined to reduce outgoings as much as she possibly can and create a well-insulated envelope for her home.

 
Janet has lifted her lounge floorboards and insulated under them herself and also insulated the loft up to the top of the joists and then had it boarded out.  Her new conservatory has insulated cavities and she is insulating beneath the underfloor heating, which is yet to be installed.
 
She’s had new high performance double glazing fitted throughout and two wood-burners installed, on which she cooks and keeps her kettle ticking over.  The PV array on the roof helps keep electricity costs down and Janet recycles all her grey water, which helps to keep water bills low.
 
Much of the work is in a state of flux but Janet already has a warm, cheap to run home with minimal carbon emissions.
