Self-Build Your Way To Energy Savings | Everything Electric Show

From Everything Electric Show.

When they couldn’t find a suitable local property to downsize to, homeowners Phil & Wendy decided they would take matters into their own hands.

In this week’s episode our Home Energy presenter Emilie gets the low down of how this incredibly efficient and eco friendly retirement project all came together.

Every aspect of this self-build property has been meticulously planned, from the super insulated walls, floors and roof space, to the air filtration, heating and hot water systems. The resulting £1 a day energy costs and high scoring air permeability test is a real testament to what’s possible with today’s range of clean home energy technologies, a clear vision of your goal and a great team.
