What Our Customers Say
I recently contacted David at the Energy saving store for a house mot / energy survey and to explain the details / drivers behind a previous EPC.
David was swift in his response and during his visit was most effective at explaining what options were open to me and showed his expertise in explaining what the 'drivers' were behind my EPC rating.
David impressed by quickly supplying further data which will allow me to make informed choices on the way forward.
My advice would be to get a Home MOT, giving the way forward to a more comfortable home, saving money on energy costs and be friendlier to the environment.
Well done and thank-you David and the energy saving store.
Wednesday morning I phoned David to ask about getting solar panels fitted to our house in Lochinver. Wednesday afternoon David came to see us and do an energy report on the house. Friday morning two workmen arrived to fit the panels onto the roof. Friday afternoon the electrician arrived and connected everything together. Saturday morning sunshine and loads of excess power going to the national grid, making money already. This must be the quickest installation on record. David is a star.
As an elderly lady in her senior years I was unsure where and where to turn.
I was told of a company from Munlochy not far from me in Alness. The man there David has many awards for energy Efficiency including the Scottish Champion award. David popped up to see what I had it was old storage heaters I could not afford to change all of these so David identified the main culprit in my lounge and that was upgraded to an Elnur unit with thermostatic controls oh boy what a difference.
I am so glad David took control and organised a fantastic and fast service the lads were so good they all got a pot of my homemade jam each. The difference is unbelievable I phoned David one night saying the heater went off he explained as I had put on another the temperature was reached so it goes off very clever and saves energy.
I would certainly recommend The Energy Saving Store for anything they specialise in, Wow what a service.
After having The Energy Saving Store at our home (or David if you know him), we had led lighting in our home however the quality wasn't to Davids standards. After doing all the homes lights we are totally gobsmacked at the light he has brought into our home - it' s remarkable. We had an old strip light that took ages to get going guess what David had an LED replacement unbelievable difference.
We had a smart meter installed and they give you a little house monitor to see what's going on it hardly moves with all the lights on. David said leave lights on keeping burglars away we understand now as these lights use hardly any power. We cannot believe the difference.
Thanks The Energy Saving Store
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.
We contacted The Energy Saving Store for a home M.O.T. which was speedily and efficiently done. We were then advised to change the method of heating from old storage heaters to new highly efficient Elnur units with thermostatic controls as we could then utilise the off-peak electricity meter we have, and now we cannot believe the difference in the house it's amazing!
David explained to us simply that the house needed a new heart and boy was he right its so cosy now.
We are always wary of having installers on our property, but yet again as David was in control as he even took the time to come up to Brora from Munlochy to inspect the job as it progressed. The installers, led by Jack, were spotless, courteous and professional even hoovering up at completion - wonderful to know quality of workmanship is still out there.
We owe a well deserved thank you to Elnur Heaters' and the installers' 5 Star service. The heaters were installed in 24-36 hours and all old units disposed of.
David and The Energy Saving Store were 100% in control of the works, doing a perfect job and creating a 'new' home that we love. He even converted our lighting to LED bulbs, gratis, which will now use up to 90% less energy giving more amazing savings.
All in all a clean, fast and extremely efficient service.
