Sue's house is detached 4 bedroom property built in the early 1960s and extended in 1988.

It has:

Cavity wall insulation fitted 25 years ago; some loft insulation;
draught proofing; radiator valves; thermostat; heating timer; double-glazing (sustainable wooden frames, rather than PVC), condensing, combi-boiler, PV solar panels

All the above were done as ways of reducing Sue's electricity consumption and/or reducing reliance on fossil fuel sources of heating and hot water.

Sue has also worked hard to reduce her overall use of electricity, water and other resources. Also, as part of holistic approach
to conservation, she has converted garden to wildlife one, and organic with a veg plot.

For Sue personally the above is all part of her responsibility to reduce her carbon footprint for reasons of global justice and to play a part in combating climate change etc.

Transport:
Kinch Bus No 11 and 12 stop on Kenilworth Ave at top of Blenheim Close; ask for Chiswick Drive/Spot-On Snooker. There is room for 2
cars on driveway and, mostly, room on street also. There is room for cycles to be locked up in car port.
