RTÉs about the house – energy upgrades

If you missed “About the House” tonight with Duncan then here is what happened:

This week, Duncan is in Rahan, Co Offaly to visit a couple who have just won a competition to upgrade their home. Aidan and Martina Grennan live in a cold draughty bungalow which was built 40 years ago.    Martina suffers from a debilitating illness fibromyalgia and also asthma  which is not helped by dampness, humidity and poor ventilation in their home
Now they have the chance to completely transform the comfort of their home by giving it the energy upgrade that it really needs. Duncan talks to them about their plans to improve their home and the difference it will make to their lives.

Martin English from NSAI talks to Duncan about the importance of using quality certified insulation products.

Tania visits a small terraced home in Dublin 8 which has been completely transformed by the addition of a beautiful contemporary extension. Not only has this house been aesthetically changed, but an eco friendly renovation has meant that it has gone from a G to a B1 BER rating.

It is great to see that they are showing so many renewable energy products and Eco houses on the series this year!
