Mains gas, water & drainage. Gas fired central heating. 2 PV Thermal Panels, 9 PV Solar Panels. Double-glazed throughout.

Eco-Conscious Living
The property boasts nine solar panels mounted on the garage roof. These panels generate approximately 2.2kW on a sunny day and benefit from a high feed-in tariff due to their early installation date. This unique system features individual inverters for each panel, maximizing long-term reliability. On average, the panels contribute around £1,000 annually, and this benefit transfers to the new homeowner.

Two thermal panels grace the main roof of the house. Filled with antifreeze (glycol), these panels capture solar energy to heat hot water. The hot water tank can utilise heat from the panels, gas, or electricity, offering a flexible system. Notably, for approximately six months of the year, the thermal panels provide sufficient energy to meet all hot water needs, eliminating the need for gas entirely. Even during winter, these panels contribute significantly, with any additional heating provided by the gas boiler.
