Energy Saving Retrofit Assessment
Have you heard about home retrofit and want to find out more, but are unsure where to begin? Retrofit doesn't have to be complicated, and we have the information and expertise you need to make good decisions. The first step will be to carry out an initial survey of your home and sit down to work with you in order to:
- Signpost you to relevant information, such as websites, fact-sheets, sources of advice and case studies;
- Develop your expectations around what can be achieved;
- Help you to define your aims and priorities;
- Assess the environmental impact of various retrofit options;
- Assist your decision-making around products, contractors and all other procurement considerations;
- the optimal external wall insulation thickness - either internally or externally
- most efficient roof and attic room insulation
- optimal windows and/or external doors insulation
- the efficient floor insulation.
The Retrofit Assessment will provide you with a bespoke plan and design for the whole of your home, detailing all the measures you could take to make your home as energy efficient as possible.
It also includes recommendations on which measures are the most cost-effective, have the most impact and in which order to carry them out.
Possible recommended renovations include, but are not limited to:
- Air tightness
- Heating and cooling systems
- Renewable technologies e.g. air source for heat pumps, ground source heat pumps, solar PV, or solar thermal
- Water heating systems
- Efficient lighting
- Energy monitoring systems
- Using locally generated power that uses zero-carbon technologies such as wind turbines
Our Retrofit Assessors are TrustMark licensed meaning that they are committed to customer service and good trading practices and that they have had the technical competence of their work inspected to ensure consistent quality and adherence to standards.

Energy Performance Certificate assessments
An Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) is required for buying, selling or renting a property.
An EPC reports the amount of energy used, carbon levels and predicts energy costs. It also provides recommendations for energy saving measures that would reduce bills. Assessments only usually last around 40 minutes at your property - we’ll be in and out in no time!
If you are applying for a Boiler Upgrade Scheme, the Energy Performance Certificate for the property needs to be less than 24 months old with no outstanding recommendations for loft or cavity wall insulation.

We provide general advice on the suitability of your house for Solar Panels or Photovoltaics(PV)
- We can provide you with impartial recommendations for the most efficient solar PV system
- We can help with the selection of the optimal location of the solar PV - they do not always have to be installed on a South facing roof
- We can provide advice on solar PV battery storage (if one is required for your solar PV system)
- We can provide recommendations on the most efficient way to utilise the energy generated by solar PV, including charging an EV car, powering electric underfloor heating or heating your home

Thermal Imaging Survey
Thermal imaging is the most effective way to identify problem areas causing excessive heat loss in a home. For example, areas of significant cold air ingress, thermal leakage through external walls, thermal bridges around the windows, doors, and other openings. All of these can increase heat loss and therefore bills but are hard to identify without a thermal camera.
Based on the survey results, we can advise on cost-effective ways to eliminate heat loss & improve energy efficiency.
We offer thermal imaging surveys as a standalone service, or it can be added to other services as an addition.

Heat Pump Energy Suitability Assessment
We provide impartial advice on the suitability of an Air and or Ground Source Heat Pump for your home. Where suitable, we can recommend a heat pump that can be integrated into your existing heating and hot water system.
We can complete preliminary heat loss calculations on your home to provide an assessment of the size of the heat pump you require. This can give you confidence in negotiating with installers to ensure you are not mis-sold an under or over-sized heat pump. We can predict the efficiency of a heat pump for the existing house and also after some modifications, e.g. adding an extension or additional insulation.

Noise Assessment for Air Source Heat Pumps
Domestic air source heat pumps (ASHP) are installed in the UK under the Micro generation Certification Scheme (MCS). As part of the scheme the installer must complete a noise assessment that requires the total sound pressure level, plus a notional background noise level, not to exceed 42dB(A) at the nearest residential receptor. This assessment methodology fails to account for acoustic characteristics, e.g. tonality or impulsivity which can be present in the sound produced by an ASHP. As a result, the sound emitted from a heat pump can cause a noise nuisance, particularly during quieter periods or in quiet backgrounds, even if installed correctly under the MCS scheme. We can provide advice on the suitability of a particular model of an ASHP to your acoustic surroundings.
We can carry out a noise impact assessment for the exiting heat pump if you perceived it as annoying or received a noise complaint from the neighbors. We can provide advice on practical measures for reducing noise from the ASHP which may include a recommendation for a better location, noise barrier, or an enclosure with absorbing materials.
