Detailed energy efficiency surveys have been carried out on the following houses:
- 2 different types from Withymead Road
- St Martin’s Park
- Back Lane
- Tanners Acre
- Hay Street (listed)
- High Street (listed)
The case studies look at the type of construction, the existing measures for retaining energy and what could be done to improve the energy efficiency of the house to reduce bills, energy usage and carbon footprint.
For the technically aware: SAP Design Stage Assessment calculations under the latest SAP software (SAP 2009), SAP Energy Efficiency options report for each dwelling and EPC.
There will be a short presentation on these at the Energy Day and the surveyor will have a stand where the results will be available and the surveyor will be available to answer questions.
Information will also be available at the Energy Day on the Green Deal – expected to be launched in Autumn 2012. This is a Government initiative aimed at enabling residents to make improvements to their house without increasing their expenditure.
