Eco Features
Solar PV panels(2kw), Solar Hot water system, Air Source Heat Pump, MHRV ventilation. Increased insulation, efficient underfloor heating Total yearly electric bill over last few years : £900 to £1050 Total yearly income from FiT & RHI : In excess of £3000 (FiT c. £1100 - RHI £1900)

More Details
Solar thermal (hot water)- thermomax 30 tube system, 300l unvented cylinder, provides vast majority of hot water needs in spring and summer months, and also on sunny winter days Solar PV (electricity) 2kw system, 2 arrays, dual tracker inverter. Produces >2000kw a year on a FiT tariff of 55p/kw (linked to RPI) - equates to an income usually in excess of £1200pa - service costs approx £250 every 3 years this tariff should be transferable to new owner, some people chose not to transfer and keep income, I would be transferring. Also reduces energy use in the summer. If you are harvesting energy, it will be used by the house otherwise exported to the grid- you get paid per unit generated and also for an assumed quantity exported.

Air source heat pump - ASHP - replaces the boiler - uses electricity to harness heat from the air - will be installed in every new build instead of a boiler from 2025. Very efficient , produces 3kw of heat for each 1kw of electricity used . On an RHI tarif (renewable heat incentive ) which pays £1904 pa (£476 paid quarterly) until 2024. This is also transferable to new owner Total yearly electric bill over last few years : £900 to £1050 Total yearly income from FiT & RHI : In excess of £3000 (FiT £1100 - RHI £1900)

Underfloor heating- wet (uses hot water not electric) system, throughout the whole house. Compliments the air source heat pump. Solid floor downstairs acts as a large thermal store and keeps the house a very steady comfortable temperature. Each bed /living room has its own thermostat, can be set to suit lifestyle and thereby reduce cost and energy use, or just set and forget - very clever and non complex control system MHRV - whole house heat recovery ventilation system. Puts filtered fresh air into living areas, and removes stale air from bathroom and kitchen. 95% of the the heat is transferred from the stale air to the fresh air. Great for allergy sufferers, and people who like to breathe fresh air...

The house also has higher than average insulation in the loft, on the extension, and most external walls also have 40mm or more insulation internally There is also a 2000l water tank intended for rainwater harvesting in the garden
