Martin had three aims in retrofitting his 1905 home: he wanted to improve comfort, reduce energy use, and lower his carbon emissions. Commissioning Ecofurb to carry out a whole house survey helped Martin to envisage the changes he wanted to make, and gave him a 4 stage plan to achieve them. Since then Martin has worked on his retrofit step by step, starting each new stage as time, energy and money allowed.
Martin says: “The improvements have greatly increased comfort, carbon savings and, with increasing energy costs, are likely to prove a good financial investment. They also reduce on-going maintenance – painting, repair etc. When eventually selling the house, the new buyer will not need major refurbishment requiring weeks/months when the house could not be occupied.”
