Anne and Ian's home is a really thoughtful, well considered work in progress.  Their goal is to become a carbon neutral household.  In order to achieve that, they made the decision to have an air source heat pump installed to provide central heating and hot water to basins/bath (shower is electric).  This is a recent installation, so they are still on their initial journey with this.  However, it has added a new element to their lives - they now utilise smart mertering in various parts of the house and, as such, are much more conscious of how much fuel they are using.  Also by adding an electric awning on the south face of their house, it has enabled them to do away with air conditioning in summer in that part of the house.

They very wisely chose to take advantage of the Renewable Heat Incentive to help them save money and make their project more achievable.  They have carefully planned the order in which to get things done to gain maximum advantage of this, so that's why insulation is next on the list (not first).  Before starting their journey, their energy rating was F and after the impressive heat pump installation, it has already gone to B.  The insulation will then take it to A.

Do come and chat to them and take a look at the various features inside and outside that have already made a big difference.  They really have done their homework and they are both a mine of information.
