Home Energy Surveys

Home Energy Surveys

Most surveys begin with a specific issue - high bills or a desire to reduce carbon emissions, perhaps. Our surveys are highly interactive - we don't go off with a clip-board, bid you farewell and then put a report in the post. Wherever possible the client accompanies the surveyor, discussing problems and possibilities as we progress from top to bottom of the house.

This way, most issues are discussed before we even reach the door to leave, and the report becomes mainly an aide-memoire, a list of specific recommendations and a resource guide. Fewer words on the survey means a smaller figure on the bill.

Prices start at £110 for a basic survey and bullet-point e-mail report on a small house less than 3 miles from our base in Sheffield 8.


Bonsall survey "The audit was a very good benchmark to give us some guidance on what we could be doing - there was so much to consider before, we found it hard to make an informed decision. Now we have a framework to work to. We're getting quotes for secondary double glazing to remove draughts from our old sash windows and to increase insulation. We're also going to line two rooms with internal insulation when they are next decorated. We've also been considering 'wrapping' two entire sides of the house from the outside, the sides which face the wind, again to increase insulation and retain more of our very expensive heat!"

"Thank you very much for sending this report. It is a good summary and you have provided some great background information and references. Now we just need to put it all into action.
We both found your visit very useful and it was good to discuss the many awkward problems associated with trying to keep an older house warm (and condensation free!).
We will let you know how we get on!"
