What Our Customers Say
I just wanted to write to say a huge thank you to you all at The Energy Saving Store.
The service I received was exceptional, especially given the very short time frame we were dealing with.
As you are in Scotland and we are in Devon, I doubted you'd even be able to find me a local Green Deal Report assessor, let alone turn the report around in less than 24 hours. How wrong I was, we spoke on a Monday afternoon, Rob the assessor was here Tuesday morning and by Tuesday afternoon I'd received the completed report and was able to submit our RHI claim which is now being processed by Ofgem.
It's so impressive that even though we are hundreds of miles away you were able to provide us with such efficient and fast service.
Fantastic. David and team have made me love my home again. Their advice was spot on about what the problems were. Craig (the boiler fitter/plumber) was a delight to have in my home. A good job all round.
I am so pleased I won this Home Energy Report. David was so helpful, professional, and knowledgable with his advice and recommendations. Not to mention getting replacement bulbs, tips and ideas that will be extremely helpful to us. Thank you so much.
A really beneficial prize to win.
Many thanks for your support over the last couple of months.
Your service has been fantastic - Through your recommendations (help with the Energy Savings Trust Loan & identifying a suitable PV installer) I have now installed a 7.2kW PV solar system and would highly recommend the company you suggested - R&A Renewable (previous PV suppliers would limit my request to a 4kW system only). I had concerns over the aesthetics, installing PV onto a Slate roof - but as you can see from the pictures I think that R&A provided a great service.
We installed the system which you recommended to provide free hot water as soon as we are generating more electricity than we are using! With your help we have replaced more than 100 different types of light bulbs to LED's a chore which I knew I needed to do, but kept putting off!
I'm looking forward to seeing reductions in my electricity bill and income from the FIT tariff - and believe that we have made a good long term investment based on your recommendations. I'm looking forward to your support as we consider the next steps to install a log burner and start to reduce the gas bill!
If you're thinking of changing the way you heat your home, or just want to reduce your energy bills then I'd strongly recommend you visit David Morrison at The Energy Saving Store, High Street Dingwall (01349 864910).
He has a wealth of knowledge and connections and will steer you through the process to get the right sustainable solution to suit you. He will assess your present heating and energy arrangements and can provide you with an Energy Performance Certificate, he will also guide you through the available grants and loans you can access, and can help you approach reliable companies for quotes to install new state of the art heating systems.
We contacted him in November 2021, and he managed to arrange for us a new Daikin Air Source Heat Pump with new radiators, installed by experts, by 20th January.
The reason I wished to use [The Energy Saving Store's] services were twofold. Firstly to gain an EPC certificate for each let property and to see how he could improve the energy rating and reduce the carbon emissions.
After meeting with David he advised me to login in to the Energy Trust Scotland website and obtain a voucher for each of my let properties. Once on the website I completed and submitted to the Energy Trust a voucher for each property before printing a hard copy for retention.
David and his team then performed an EPC assessment on each property and then carried out energy saving measures such as loft and cavity wall insulation and fitting of LED bulbs etc. A subsequent EPC assessment was carried out and copied to myself. Both David and myself then signed of each voucher and submitted these to the Energy Trust.
Once each voucher is processed by the Energy Trust the fees paid to David and his team for their work was refunded to myself in full. Accordingly there was no cost to myself.
There is a time limit of 16 weeks between the initial submission and printing of the voucher to the Energy Trust and final submission of the signed voucher on completion of the works. This is ample time for David and his team to perform the energy savings measures and completing the initial and revised EPC assessments.
In summary I would recommend David and his team to any landlord given that each of my properties were improved and each tenant could look forward to reduced utility bills.
