Case Studies
1950’s System Build 3 Bed Semi-Detached
The McVeighs property was uninsulated which meant that the house was constantly cold and draughty.
Project Overview
  • Customer: Mr McVeigh
  • Project Type: Domestic Homeowner
  • Property Type: System Built Semi-Detached
  • Region: Nottinghamshire
  • Pre-Install EPC Rating: D59
  • Post-Install EPC Rating: C70
  • Despite having loft insulation and double glazing the McVeighs still considered their home difficult to heat.
  • To ensure they weren't constantly cold, the McVeighs had to keep the heating on for most of the day.
  • The constant use of heating had resulted in high energy bills, that were eating through their savings.
  • The McVeigh's also felt the external features of their property were tired looking and in need of a revamp.

One of our accredited assessors carried out a full energy assessment and technical survey of the property. The findings of this assessment highlighted that the majority of heat loss was due to the poorly insulated external walls of the system built property.

Our assessor advised a variety of energy efficient insulation methods that would benefit the McVeigh family, however after careful consideration the assessor advised that external wall insulation would be the best solution for the McVeighs.

External wall insulation was recommended because it would provide the benefit of a warmer home and lower heating bills. It also had additional benefits of improving the exterior of the property; revitalising the appearance, which had been a long time desire.

I can't rate the Ellipse Energy team enough. They were friendly and efficient, and walked my wife and I through every step so we were always in the loop. Thank you.
