I got a cold call from one of the Solar Co's yesterday, "not selling anything Sir but just checking if you qualify for the grant" (or incentive, I wasn't really listening) ... and according to the guy who called back later I was. ;-)
However, after his spiel I explained I'd been there before and obviously had a rough idea of the numbers ... then we accidentally got cut-off?
That got me reading the recent 'FIT Slashed' thread, that covered insulation amongst other things and got me thinking about what I could do here (1897, solid 9" brick EOT 3 bed).
And that got me thinking about ventilation. If we are supposed to exchange the air every so often, I'm not sure at what point 'good insulation' is counteracted by all the cold air coming in from the outside?
So, how do we deal with that? Is it an issue? Why isn't there more talk of heat exchangers (I believe there has been some talk but not loads)?
Will that be the next top seller or scam, picked up by the Solar Co's?
