The score on the EPC is 78. The top of category C is 80. The assessor thought we had done amazingly well to score nearly category B for a terraced house in Lancaster. Our attention to detail and insulation with the refurbishment paid off!

Additional Information
Solar panels:
The solar panels first charge up the 2 batteries in the garage and feed the house for any electricity needed at that time. We used the nighttime tariff (6 hours at 5.96p) to ensure the batteries were full at 6am. When there is daylight creating electricity that again tops up the battery and when it is full sells it back to the grid. From March to end of November we did not need to buy any of the much more expensive (29.56p) day time electricity. (Electric prices July 2024)

Water meter:
Our monthly standing order to United Utilities has been £25.84.

Additional Information
Energy Use at Westbourne Road:
The gas central heating has a zone for each of the four floors and can be controlled by an individual floor timer and thermostat. You only need to heat the floor you want for the time you need. The master bedroom only needs heating for 30 mins in the morning and 30 minutes in the evening during the main winter time. The study / bedroom with the immersion heater needs no additional heating because the immersion heater stays warm all day. When the CH was turned off
we found for 2 or 3 showers per day we only needed 90 minutes of immersion heater powered by the batteries in the garage.

The eControl Aga is a really huge improvement on the old gas system. The hobs and ovens are independent and totally flexible, and quickly reach temperature. They are controlled either manually on the cooker or by smart app.
The electric charge includes topping up our electric car every night, at only 5.96p per kwh. Public chargers are between 50p and 80p per kwh.)
