Retrofit of Victorian House, Faversham
Costly render repairs made external wall insulation a financially viable option, for this hard to heat end of terrace 3 storey house.
A combination of 200mm and 100mm external insulation was used, with internal insulation to the sensitive front elevation.
Combined with solar thermal and a new boiler, energy consumption has reduced by 60%. The property features in the SEA’s Superhome database.
Even in a historic conservation area such as Faversham, thermal improvements are possible, if carefully thought out.
