Our retrofit works is aimed at key areas such as wall insulation, roof insulation, proper glazing, and floor insulation to optimize energy efficiency. We engage in the following processes to consider clients’ motivations for retrofit , their priorities and preferences,
Consultation Appointment: We begin by understanding your goals and priorities for your home energy performance. Here we delve into what you want to achieve in terms of energy efficiency for your home We make an appointment with you in order to review your objectives, priorities, preferences, perceptions, future plans, timescales, and budget, including any available past energy bills, Energy Performance Certificate (if applicable), construction drawings, as well as planning and building approvals or certificates related to your property.
We schedule a 30-minute follow-up consultation to discuss the recommendations and address any questions you may have about the report and proposed measures.
Building Survey: Our assessor will conduct a visual inspection of your property's condition and carry out a survey to measure various parameters, such as existing insulation, heating, cooling, extractors, and more. This assessment includes capturing photographs to aid our evaluation.
Energy Modelling: Our team creates an energy model of your current home. Based on this model, we develop three potential retrofit scenarios, categorized as low, medium, and high intervention measures.
Energy Report: Following the assessment, you will receive a comprehensive Home Retrofit Planner report. This report outlines our findings and includes three costed retrofit works scenarios with approximate performance outcomes. The recommendations will range from simple, quick-win solutions to more extensive deep retrofit measures, along with expected time frames.
ARC Facilities offers these services with the aim of providing you with personalized guidance and detailed information to create a whole-house retrofit plan that aligns with your property, objectives, lifestyle, choices, and budget to offer comfort, health and great indoor air quality.By implementing better and more energy-efficient building practices.
