Bishopston, Cotham and Redland Energy Group
Bishopston, Cotham and Redland Energy Group was set up in May 2015 to assist local residents to make their homes more energy efficient
In our area we have some of the largest and draughtiest homes in Bristol, so reducing their energy consumption could save money for householders, make their homes more comfortable and make a sizable contribution to reducing Bristol’s energy consumption.
This might involve:
- simple draught proofing
- learning how best to monitor energy use
- installation of solar photovoltaic (PV) panels
- wall insulation
Our initial focus has been on publicising thermal imaging as a tool for highlighting energy loss in the home (www.heatview.co.uk). Alongside this, internal home energy surveys will be available in 2016. For a modest fee these will involve thermal imaging of the home from inside in cold weather, together with the householder, to highlight draughts and cold spots. The householder will receive a CD detailing the findings and advice on remedial action. If you are interested in signing up or would like to be put on our contact list for information about future group activities, please email us.
