Energy saving hardware

I live in a victorian house (no cavity walls) and have loft insulation and double glazing.
I would like an independent energy saving advice company to advise the most cost effective solutions: solar panels, insulating the walls, triple glazing, ground and air source heat exchange units etc.
How can I obtain this? Googling doesn't seem to yield any results.

  • You would think in these times of high energy prices that you wouldn't be able to move without tripping over an Energy Saving Advisor.  But actually they're extremely thin on the ground.  Perhaps if you are struggling to afford the cost of your energy you won't have the funds to pay an advisor?

    You may wish to check with your parish council to see if there are any schemes.

    In our parish, we have, for 8 weeks, got a thermal imaging camera available for parishioners to use to see where the cold spots are.  This is free of charge and part of a county wide Warm Homes initiative.   The cameras are doing the rounds around parishes.          

    I am an Independent Financial Adviser (IFA). The comments I make are just my opinion and are for discussion purposes only. They are not financial advice and you should not treat them as such. If you feel an area discussed may be relevant to you, then please seek advice from an Independent Financial Adviser local to you.

    A visit to the National Self-Build and Renovation Centre might be a good start.

    A permanent exhibition plus a regular programme of seminars and workshops.

    Or a consultation with a designer member of AECB could be another route.

    The comments I post are my personal opinion. While I try to check everything is correct before posting, I can and do make mistakes, so always try to check official information sources before relying on my posts.

    I wonder how many get nothing but complaints when people take their advice, but do not see bills come down.

    If your household income is lower than £31,000 per annum you could be eligible for ECO4 grants.
