Janet has bravely embarked on a major programme to overhaul her house, much of which she is doing herself.

A new conservatory with insulated cavities, insulated floor, wet underfloor heating and high performance glazing is being built at the rear, whilst she has lifted her lounge floor and insulated under it herself. At the same time, she has insulated the loft up to the top of the joists and had it boarded, new double glazing fitted and a woodburning stove installed in the dining room.

A new PV array on the roof is generating ample electricity, which Janet is trying to exploit by coordinating her electricity and hot water use to match.

Much of the work is in a state of flux, but when completed she should have a warm, cheap-to-heat house, with minimal carbon emissions.
