Case Study

Cosy Cot
Energy Advice Report

What was required?

Cosy cot was once part of a collection of barns located in St. Dennis, Cornwall. With some minor restoration, it was made habitable some 60 years ago and is now due some major refurbishment.

A local architecture firm approached us wanting to gain some advice on how to improve the property’s energy efficiency and the most cost effective way to achieve the best possible EPC rating.

Using the RdSAP methodology for existing dwellings, we were able to produce an as built energy performance certificate and provide a MEES Energy Advice Report to accompany it. We explored the possibilities of improvements on each part of the building fabric as well as the decision to install either an air source heat pump or high heat retention storage heaters.

Our Energy Report

Our tailored energy report outlines the subject property with a brief description of its construction and type, its current heating and hot water supply, and thermal efficiency.

We take the data collected at the EPC stage and use RdSAP to explore the most efficient way to increase the EPC rating.

The recommendations that can be advised range from installing light bulbs to wind turbines. We understand that there is a cost factor involved in any renovation and these are considered with all of the suggested improvements.

You may have an idea of something you want the property to include and we can take this into consideration when calculating the improved result.

The clear and concise sections of the report allow you to make an informed decision on the measures you wish to implement on your property. 

If you want to discuss your options, please get in touch with us.
