In 2013 the Spencer family moved into their Pennine farmhouse, which dates back to the early eighteenth century. Keen to improve the thermal efficiency of the solid stone farmhouse, the family approached Ploughcroft for Green Deal funding guidance.
The £29,000 project qualified for £20,000 Green Deal funding and includes internal solid wall insulation and roof insulation.
Commenting on the works, Dr Rob Spencer said:
“We’re absolutely delighted with the whole process, Chris Hopkins’s level of expertise and knowledge of the funding process is exceptional. In fact, I can confidently say, that if it hadn’t been for Chris, this project would not have gone ahead.
“Ploughcroft as a firm have been extremely professional and accommodating. We are all looking forward to being able to move back into our thermal efficient home and perhaps more importantly, to seeing a significant reduction in our solid fuel and electricity bills, which will hopefully be in the region of £5,700 over the next three years.”
