David and Jill abhor waste and made it a priority to steadily improve the energy performance of their house when they moved in 2004. The house itself had previously been heavily upgraded from the original 1930s bungalow, by a developer in 1990.
So far they have changed the boiler and controls, installed both Solar thermal and Solar PV, as well as Cavity wall insulation and low energy lighting. The new heating programmer allows for remote control and David hopes to use it to fine tune even further. As a result net carbon emissions are more than 80% lower than a typical house of their size.
They are not obsessed with climate change, but consider it prudent to run the house economically and have brought up their children to follow this philosophy. David carries the work further, being trained as a waste prevention advisor for WSCC and giving talks to local schools.
