- The house was fitted with 10cm thick EPS insulating board.
- It was finished with a coloured silicate render - ensuring a long maintenance free lifespan.
- The job was funded in conjunction with the £6,000 GDHIF grant, so the final cost to the customer just £2,000.
Mr Mincher benefitted from the Government Green Deal Home Improvement Fund Grant, providing £6,000 towards the total cost of the works.
The house in Greenwich was insulated with 10cm thick EPS insulation boards and then rendered with a silicate render. The External Wall Insulation (EWI) system used was the Kreisel System, which is an approved Green Deal system.
Adding the 10cm of insulation to the walls resulted in a u-value of 0.27W/m2k, which is comparable with brand new cavity walls built today.
It is estimated that this will save Mr Mincher over £180 a year (and it is worth noting that he is a low energy user) without taking into account any future energy price rises despite the fact in cash terms energy prices have doubled over the last 7 years.
