Roof: 16 solar panels on front south facing roof producing an average per year over 5 years of 799 tax free in Feed in Tarif (the F.I.T. is guaranteed until March 2034). With a present total average gas and electric usage cost of 607 annually inclusive of standing charge. This leaves a surplus after all energy costs of 193 per year. The bungalow has an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rated "A". This is extremely unusual for a property built in the 1951. So, it keeps the bungalow warm in the winter (23c) and cool in the summer. All things staying equal, this will give free energy for 15 years, and a surplus of 2,895, an equivalent of just under another 5 years free energy.
Water softener: This keeps the shower, taps, washing machine, dishwasher, radiators, kettle and all water related pipework clear of scale build up, making them all run more efficiently; last longer, with no scum on sinks, shower glass, shower heads, cups of tea and coffee and therefore saves time and money.
Planning: Swale council have granted planning permission to incorporate the garage as part of the house. Planning is unused and still live until 22nd November 2021.
