Our 6.16kW solar PV array was tried and tested during the spring and summer. With autumn behind us, it’s time to see how well our array has done with shorter days and the sun lower in the sky.
We had some money left over from a wedding anniversary activity that was called off as a result of bad weather so we took advantage of the festive season offers and purchased the 23andMe and AncestryDNA kits.
Our Caernarfon air source heat pump has now been operational since the spring. It’s time to see how it performed over the course of the past three months as part of our autumn air source heat pump review.
It’s been a busy year filled with small and large projects, and we finally got around to having our chimneys swept. Last year, we had new chimneys and flues put in and we got our local chimney sweep in to ensure that they were still AOK.
November was ridiculously cold, with snow, frost and a lot of sub-zero days, which doesn’t make for pleasant outdoor working conditions.
We applied for the Feed-in-Tariff (TiF) and Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) for our solar PV and air source heat pump respectively, and the process has been remarkably different.
