Future Energy...

I am in the process of buying a run down bungalow.

It has no gas fitted and we are not keen in getting gas fitted as gas seems a little bit old fashioned....

WHo has done what recently?

Air source heat pump with underfloor and insulate the hell out of it, get some bullshit solar panels if grantable. I have heard good things from some large plots done this way, bills are very reasonable after outlay, but hey! Saving the planet too.

I will have a look at air source heat pumps/...

We insulated the hell out of a current property and we have still not turned any heating on yet

Don’t get air source. Takes electricity to run, and costs a fortune initially. Never going to get your money back.

Go with gas and insulate the hell out of it...thats what I've done on last 2 developments and bills are low. Just make sure you have s**t hot extractors in kitchen and bathrooms...trickle vents in windows.

Nearly every job I do is a rural detached new build and they all seem to be having these air source pumps

seems old fashioned and trickle vents in windows seem to be backwards.. I did not fit them in this property and is so much better

I didn’t put trickle vents in my last house and it ended up getting condensation and mould everywhere, absolute nightmare

Heat recovery charcoal filtered ventilation
I've posted before about all the nasty gas off from modern products
Do you want to hear about sitting the house on poly rafts and rotating for solar lol
