A number of initiatives have been undertaken to reduce energy consumption, being:-

  • Double glazed Windows (R8 Windows which are designed for period buildings).
  • Air source heat pump heating which is much more efficient than oil or gas or traditional electric heating. An added bonus is air cooling in the summer.
  • LED lighting throughout including LED filament lamps which consume less than 10% of the electricity of standard bulbs.
  • Induction hob in the kitchen.
  • A-rated white goods.
  • Softened water; not only does soft water feel nice to the touch, it requires much less soap or detergent and with no lime scale build up (in what is a very hard water area), the water systems and washing machines last much longer.
  • A reverse osmosis water purifier provides top quality drinking water and there is no need to purchase bottled water.
