This is a typical town centre terraced house, with a fairly small garden. When the owner bought it in 2012 he reviewed the EPC results for the house and decided that improving the energy efficiency was a priority. With the help of a builder friend he boarded the loft and added insulation. A 2kW solar PV system was installed by EEC Solar, based in Leyland. A wood burning stovewas fitted to ‘replace’ using the gas boiler for space heating. In addition raised beds in the garden are used for food growing.
