Things still to do

Some things we still want to investigate and / or do

Solar warm air - we were interested in importing passive solar heating into the house to supplement gas boiler heating.

Air Source Heat Pump - this has replaced solar warm air as a project to investigate

Wireless thermostat for central heating boiler - this could be moved from room to room to give greater flexibility over temperature control.

Draughts - heat loss through draughts is an ongoing problem in an old house. A while ago, we carried out some experiments on infiltration (otherwise known as draughts) to find out where the worst draughts were coming from. More information

Windows - we'd like to have triple glazed windows throughout. We are interested in sash look-alike windows that will be ok in a conservation area but have a tilting opening mechanism rather than a draughty sash.
