What Our Customers Say
I think its important that I write to you after our visit last Thursday. To say I was blown away is an understatement. When you plugged in your magic box and hooked up to my electric meter to show the energy I was using was in itself a real eye opener. My kitchen as you know had a light bar with 4 bulbs 50w each therefore 200w usage which your magic box showed by switching them on and off.
The next part is what really blew me away. Firstly within minutes you changed all 4 bulbs and when we switched them on the first thing was the room was much much brighter then bringing me to my knees was the difference in energy usage 200w down to 12w WOW and the magic box proved it. I am still absolutely blown away.
We proceeded to do 2 bathrooms 500w down to 30w. Dining Room 300w down to 18w and lounge one 300w down to 18w. It is phenomenal and bearing in mind the bulbs give of much more light.
One big problem why are the government not shouting about this from the rooftops? Without your visit I would know nothing about this. Look forward to your next visit to save loads of energy and money. My driveway lights alone will come down from 600w to 36w and be much brighter.
Thanks again for one of the most interesting and money saving visits I have ever had.
After approaching several other renewables companies in the summer we were struggling to have a time scale set for solar panels to be installed on our house. We contacted David at the Energy Saving Store on a separate matter and he visited us the following Sunday. We mentioned our attempts over the last six months to find a company who would install the panels.
He provided us with several solar alternatives that met our requirements, providing an in depth knowledge on the different products and what we could expect from them. He took measurements and provided us with quotes the following day. We settled on a system and two weeks later the installation team arrived - within six hours we were generating our own solar energy.
I would highly recommend David as a first stop for anyone considering solar panels or other renewables.
The Energy Saving Store were very helpful in our application to the Energy Saving Trust - the service was prompt, providing clear and easy-to-understand advice.
Our assessor, David Morrison, was friendly, knowledgeable, efficient and most helpful in guiding us through the process and went the extra mile to help ensure our application was successful.
We would have no hesitation in recommending David and The Energy Saving Store.
Many thanks for your excellent customer service. Needless to say we have been very impressed with your customer service and of course the products.
Really pleased with the kitchen bulbs which might even be brighter than the old reflector bulbs.
We'll continue to sing your praises to our friends...
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!
