How Can We Help You?
Infra Red Thermometer
This will measure surface temperatures and can help to pinpoint areas of heat loss. It can be borrowed from our office for a donation.
Thermal Imaging Camera
This can photograph heat loss from a building, but is best used in the winter when the heating is on and the sun isn’t out. This is available as a chargeable service. Please email us.
These will measure the electricity used by any plugged in appliance. They can either show a spot figure or can be set to record total consumption over a longer period. They are especially useful for checking standby consumption. They can be borrowed from our office for a donation. We also have an Electrisave available that measures your whole house supply.
We have a fairly extensive range of books, magazines andpamphlets on energy efficiency, renewable energy and environmentally friendly building. These are available for a donation and can be picked up from the office.
Light Bulb Library
We have a library of low energy bulbs that can be borrowed if you want to see if a particular bulb fits into a fitting or gives the light that you require. They are available for a donation and can be viewed or picked up from the office.
Energy Efficiency Assessments: Homes, Businesses & Community Buildings
If you are not sure of the suitability of some of the measures we recommend, our Energy Officers are happy to visit your property to give a more detailed assessment of your home, business or community building and deal with any queries you may have and produce a bespoke report. Please email us with your requirements.
This is available as a chargeable service: Home £75, Business & Community Buildings: £175
Renewable Energy Assessments
We can visit your house to give a broad assessment of the suitability or otherwise of installing renewable energy equipment such as solar, wind or hydro. It is however important to install all the energy efficiency measures you can before making use of renewable energy. There will be a charge for one of our independent Domestic Energy Assessors to come out but for a more informal assessment, one of our volunteers could visit in return for a donation. Please email us to book a visit.
Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs)
If you want to sell or rent a property, apply for Feed In Tariff or Renewable Heat Incentive payments or apply for Green Deal funding then you need to have an EPC produced. We can provide this at a reasonable price using independent Domestic Energy Assessors. The price will vary depending on location and the size of the property. Please email us with your requirements, we can then tender on your behalf.
Green Deal Assessments
If you want to apply for Green Deal funding you need to have a Green Deal survey and report produced by an accredited Green Deal Adviser (GDA). We can provide this at a reasonable price using local independent Green Deal Advisors. The price can vary depending on location and the size of the property. Please email us with your requirements, we can then tender on your behalf.
